Silage wrap prices today.

Was at Stirling for iodine, lmbs milk etc and both mccaskies & hasbro have wrap prices, both around 72£, l order some not getn it till last week in June, probably 100 a roll buy then. Told the girl l hope it's not 45 buy then.


The way i see it, if you skimp on bale wrap, you will have more mouldy silage, with our hi speed mchale wrapper for 4 layers plus an extra revalution for wind etc its 9 turns, i get 25 bales approx out of one roll, my silage has been good this year with only a few part bales with mould on them. For a dryer crop in July onwards i normally go to 12 revolutions, i do encourage my customers to put the extra wrap on but it,s there choice at the end of the day. Better to spend an extra £1 or 2 than waste a whole bale.
