HAY FROM SUN, RAIN & SNOW DAMAGE
Slip-Ons/Bale Bonnet offers three simple, proven, easy-to-use
systems for practical storage of round bales in all-weather conditions.
All three employ specially compounded plastic sheets created to
resist the effects of sun, rain and snow as no ordinary plastic
sheet can. One of these systems will fit your operation, and they
are all cost effective. They pay for themselves and deliver first-year
profits on investment.
to university calculations, the outside 4 inches of a 6 foot diameter
round bale contains 20.9 percent of the total hay in the bale.
Using 20 percent as a rule of thumb, 4" of spoilage on a
6' round bale weighing 1,500 pounds amounts to a loss of 300 pounds
of hay. At $80 per ton for good hay, that loss amounts to $12
for a conservative estimate.
ON HERD HEALTH
the presence of hay bale moisture, bacteria and fungus thrive,
eating up the most easily digestible nutrients. Combining the
bleaching effects of the sun, with the nutrient destructive
of microrganisms, is a sure way to destroy up to one-third of
the nutrient value of the crop. Only the innermost portion
the bale remains nutritious, and the animal is forced to eat
moldy hay to get there. The health and growth effects on the
are obvious. Productive growth in beef herds is slowed. In dairy
herds, milk production is reduced and reproduction problems
develop. Slip-Ons/Bale Bonnet protected hay can deliver herd
health and greater productivity.
