New Way To Protect Round Bales
"I've discovered a way to protect round bales stored outside that works much better than any other method I've seen," says Dwight Michener, Waynesville, Ohio.
"I set the bales on rows of tractor, truck or car tires lying flat on the ground. Then I cover the bales with sheets of black plastic. I then use a length of perforated drainage tile on top of the bales. When you cover bales with plastic, moisture is drawn up under the plastic. The drain tile removes it.
"I tie the plastic covers down with old baling wire. This works much better than the commercial tie-downs sold with commercial bale covers.
"The quality of hay stored this way is much higher. There's almost no spoilage."
