Polythenes

Stretch Film

Wrapping all or just a propotion of your grass will bring you many benefits. It produces the tastiest silage your stock could eat for a start but there's much more to Plasti-Stretch wrapping: it is extra strong to provide extra protection and tear resistant so accidental damage will not run. It's weatherproof so bales can be stored outside in all climates. One-side cling is easy to handle and stack, 70% stretch gives more wrapping without reducing protection. Rapid recovery ensures the film shrinks with the bale, and it's very tacky to seal in forage quality - there's over a mile in a 1800m roll. Damaged holes must be sealed swiftly, insert a patch under outer layer of film.
