Colored Twine Protects Against Hay Theft
"Normally, it's virtually impossible to identify hay. But with my colored twine you can protect your hay from thieves by having your own color code," says Mike Mattos, Patterson, Cal., who's come up with orange, black and yellow plastic twine for hay bales.
Using colored twine helps fight theft two ways, says Mattos. First, it gives you a way to identify the bales with your own color combination and second, the mere sight of the colored twine and accompanying warning signs acts as a deterrant to the thief.
Mattos notes that on 3-twine bales, you can have 24 different color combinations. The plastic twine sells for $17.95 a. roll (6,500 ft.). Dealer inquiries welcome.
