Tie-Down Bale Cover
"My method of covering bales requires no special hold-down pins. All you need is twine," says Eugene Menke, Berger, Mo.
"I place a grommet on each corner of a 60 by 96-in. piece of treated military canvas. Then I tie it down with plastic twine - I use plastic because it lasts longer - in such a way that thecover will never come off (see photo) and won't flap in the wind. Tie twine to one corner grommet and then go around the bale close to the ground and back to the grommet on the opposite side of the same end of the cover. Repeat on the other end of the cover. Then tie one twine string across the top of the bale as shown to keep wind from lifting cover."
