Slick Way To Cover Round Bales With Plastic
He uses the bales themselves to hold plastic in place. He starts with a 100-ft. long sheet of plastic cut 4-ft. wide.
He lays about 4 to 5 ft. of plastic out on the ground and sets the first bale on top of it. He then pulls the wrap tight over the bale to a distance approximately 1 ft. off the ground. The second bale is set on bare bround next to the first bale using a tractor loader. You push this second bale up against the first bale, locking the plastic in place between both bales. (Note: You should put a cement block be-hind the first bale to keep it from rolling back-wards as you shove additional bales up against it.)
"We've stored hundreds of bales this way with great results. The only loss is on the ends," says Iager.
