3 reasons to use net in harvesting succulent feeds

Legume grass (clover, alfalfa, esparcete and others) contain a high amount of protein, but maintaining their feed value in the case of long-term storage is quite problematic. While drying to the required humidity, many nutrients are lost on the hay, and in the case of ensiling of legumes, which are difficult to silage crops, a significant part of the energy is lost. As a result, the potential of the feed in such a preform is used only by 30-40%. The best method of storing legume grasses is to harvest senage, but it is very difficult to do this by classical methods in a pit or mound. In this case there is a method of storage in rolls.

This technology combines the principles of physiological dryness and acid conservation, which preserves the maximum of nutrients.  The pH will be in the range of 5-5.5, and the humidity — 40-45%. The hay net allows such feeds to be harvested twice as quickly as with twine.


Therefore, using our POLYPAK net, you will improve, simplify and accelerate fodder harvesting by:

1. Maximum compaction of harvested mass

This ensures the removal of air from the green feed. The net covers a larger area of ​ ​ the roll than the hay twine. It creates more pressure by mechanical tension and removes more air. Due to this, the feed will not only be better preserved, but will also take less space.

2. Preservation of the leaves and inflorescences of legumes, which are the most valuable as feed

When drying or sagging grasses, there is a large loss of the most valuable and nutritious parts of green fodder — leaves and inflorescences. They are almost completely lost during machining.
The hay net will preserve even the smallest parts of the harvested legumes.

3. Convenient storage and excavation

Bean bales covered with net can be stored in an open field if they are additionally packaged in an agrostretch film. Fodder excavation occurs quickly and conveniently. One bale is enough for 1-3 days, depending on the number of livestock.

If you have questions about the hay net for baling legumes, you can ask them to our managers by phone or through a form on the site.
