"No Waste" Bale Storage
This bale storage system will pay for itself by reducing wasted hay, according to researchers at Iowa State University.
  Bales sit on top of rubber tires which in turn rest on top of a 6-in. layer of crushed rock. The setup increases air flow and virtually stops moisture wicking up into bales, says Wayne King at ISU. What's more, the crushed rock allows rainfall to drains away from bales.
