We can supply a complete range of consistent, quality silage bale wrap.

Our silage bale wrap offers a host of features and benefits including:

  • High puncture and tear resistance
  • Greater resistance to oxygen ingress
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Strength and flexibility
  • UV Protection
  • Suitable for all bale wrappers

To produce high quality baled silage, grass needs to be tightly sealed with a reputable silage bale wrap and to remain securely sealed throughout the ensiling period. Air ingress must be minimised during wrapping and to achieve this, bales should be of a high density in order to minimise the areas available for oxygen ingress.

Another important factor for baled silage is the optimisation of Dry Matter (DM) content. The drier the forage, the more difficult it is to produce a firm, dense bale without air pockets. Excess air in the bale will result in minimal fermentation and an increased risk of moulds forming. On the other hand, too much moisture will result in heavy bales, more effluent (liquid waste from fermentation) and increased spoilage.

Should I use four or six layers of wrap?

You should uniformly apply no less than four layers of film. It is essential that at least four layers of conventional balewrap are applied to protect the crop. Whilst many farmers still apply only four layers to silage bales, many more have discovered the
benefits of a six layer application and have realised that applying any less is a false economy. In fact, the majority of countries now apply at least six layers of film as standard practice. The result is consistently higher quality silage and little or no waste. In addition, bales with six layers applied can withstand handling better.
