Why it is important to wilt for bales

Wilting is essential when making bales for the following reasons:


  • Better fermentation
  • Lighter weight bales
  • Less bales per hectare to cart and store
  • Prevent effluent leakage
  • Makes solid, better shaped bales that wrap and stack better
  • Bales retain their shape better – deformed bales can let air in
