Introduction

Silotite silage stretchfilm has been a global market leader for over three decades. Each year, Silotite protects a variety of forage crops in millions of bales, both round and square, worldwide. Designed for trouble-free use on all balewrapping machinery, the Silotite range of products suits both farmers and contractors.

Along with our Silotite and SilotitePro range of balewrap, we also produce Baletite baler film, that replaces the need for netwrap in round silage bales. Baletite reduces silage wastage as no baled fodder can become enmeshed in it.

Both Baletite and SilotitePro make up the Film & Film wrapping system, produced for use on combi-wrappers capable of applying film instead of netwrap in the bale making process. This leads to a more efficient balewrapping process, high oxygen barrier and greater bale density for an enhanced silage quality.

Baletite is an innovative film that replaces netwrap in round silage bales. Specifically created for the next generation of baling machines that can apply film instead of net, Baletite has been designed to enhance the ensiling process and protect the bale contents.

Film and Film wrapping system achieves high quality silage

diagram with packshots.jpg


Since the introduction of machinery that uses film instead of net wrap over 10 years ago, Baletite has produced thousands of high quality silage bales for farmers worldwide. Increasingly, farmers and contractors in the UK and Ireland are now taking advantage of this system.

Baletite forms part of the film and film wrapping system that sees farmers and contractors achieving benefits including ease of working, greater bale density, cost savings from less spoilage in the bale and higher output from their livestock.

Independent tests carried out on Baletite have shown that the extra layers of protection around the circumference of the bale, and bale edge protection, produces a more compact, stable bale with up to 5cm less bale diameter, meaning significantly less oxygen inside the bale. Less oxygen means the amount of spoilage losses in the bale is reduced and improves fermentation. Baletite also allows easier handling and storing of bales, as they are less likely to sag in storage.

When it comes to feed out, the process is managed easier and more efficiently, with either mechanical or manual bale opening, as no fodder becomes enmeshed. Therefore, there are significantly less losses to the high quality feed. Both Baletite, and SilotitePro can be recycled together which means no time is wasted separating waste for collection.

As previous in-field testing has shown, the farmer gained an average of 7.35kg dry matter per bale using the F&F system. This means a gain of 86.73 MJ ME per bale and can lead to an extra 15 litres of milk or an increase of 1.9kg of live weight gain per bale.

Using Baletite and SilotitePro together gives the ultimate in bale protection, with SilotitePro’s longer 2000m length, more bales can be made per reel. This also means time savings through less reel changes and enhanced crop quality with an optimised film structure. SilotitePro has unique sleeve packaging that protects the reel before use and helps towards a more efficient wrapping process.

Sustainability
We are all being encouraged to take care of the environment in which we work and live so it is good to know that the Silotite range of silage films can help farmers and contractors to significantly reduce their ecological footprint.

Sleeve packaging = less waste + more time
Silotite lives up to its reputation in the field of innovation: Silotite is taking sustainable packaging to a whole new level with fully recyclable, user-friendly sleeve packaging. A big plus for this is that the packaging is its lighter weight. With the average balewrap carton being approximately 10 times heavier than a sleeve, the potential waste reduction on farm is significant.
Reduced packaging waste
Those using a pallet of balewrap a day can reduce the weight of their packaging waste by an impressive 17kg as illustrated below:


40 boxes @ 480g =
19.2kg.PNG


40 sleeves @ 55g =
2.2kg.PNG


Overall packaging weight reduction =
17kg.PNG



That’s 17kg less packaging waste to handle, fold and sort for every pallet used. Plus, the polythene sleeve takes up considerably less space during storage and transport to be recycled.

Easier, quicker waste management
Managing packaging waste in the field is easier too. With combi-wrappers carrying up to 10 reels of balewrap, users report that folding and storing flexible sleeves is easier and quicker than handling bulky cardboard cartons.

Reducing waste streams
Made using the same base material (low density polyethylene) as the balewrap itself, this protective sleeve can be easily recycled through the same channel as balewrap, thereby aiding management of the waste streams.

Tractor found parked up ‘with its engine running and no one in it’

Written by Agriland Team

A tractor was left running and unattended while its driver was in a nearby shop buying lunch, a local police team in the UK have noted, highlighting the risks involved with such an action.

The unattended tractor was discovered by members of Dorset Police, outside a Tesco store in Blandford Forum, in England, last Thursday (October 15).

Taking to social media to highlight the matter, Dorset Police said:

When we visited Tesco’s in Blandford we didn’t expect to find a £110,000 [€121,800] tractor parked up near the entrance with its engine running and no one with it.
“We soon located the driver leaving Tesco’s with a meal deal.

“There’s absolutely...
