The prospect of efficient baling is quite true when using net wrap

Although there are many materials for hay baling, experts in farming agree that the net wrap is the best option. It is a simple and inexpensive material that provides many benefits to farmers.

Net wrap is a type of plastic netting that farmers and ranchers worldwide have used as a quick and easy way to bale hay, wood chips and straw. While hay baling is not a new practice, the advancements of net wrap have made it far superior to traditional hay bailing methods and materials. Net wrap allows you to do large jobs quickly, economically, and precisely.

Net Wrap Materials and Applications

Net wrap is available in either polyethylene or polypropylene material construction. It has the strength of both plastic and wire fencing combined into one product. Some net wrap products are UV stabilized to resist damage from exposure to the sun.

Net wraps from come in many different sizes, but you need to ensure that whatever type you use will fit over your hay load without slipping down. There is also a variety of mesh or weave that can be chosen depending on how big your bale is and what condition you expect it to be in after baling. Mesh and weave selection will also determine how good a job you can do at containing your baler waste from spread out over the ground.

In terms of cost, net wrap is much more economical than hay bale twine or wire because it only requires one application for most loads. It requires that some of the excess wrap be cut off after baling, but it also requires much less use. Net wrap is also available in smaller rolls that one person can handle more easily.

Mesh and weave are two different applications of net wrap that you need to consider when making your purchase. The net wrap typically comes in a mesh pattern, which is more open than the traditional weave designs. A mesh design will be less likely to cause damage as hay bales break down over time. However, it will be less able to hold your hay bale together. You may also find that a mesh design is less strong and will need more careful baling to ensure that it bales correctly.

On the other hand, a mesh net wrap allows you to catch all of your hay bails, no matter how small they are. It catches everything but lets your large bales break down at their own pace. The drawback to using a mesh net wrap is that it can tear more easily than other types of netting. It also spreads hay bale waste over the ground, making clean up more difficult.

The best option for your baling project depends on what you are baling and how much time you must do it. The mesh net wrap is best for large hay production projects on a commercial scale. It will save you both time and money as it prevents any hay bale from going to waste.
