Increasing Bale Shelf-Life with John Deere's B-Wrap

Keeping bales from losing value is a difficult endeavour, and unfortunately, we don’t always have the ability to store straw and hay under a roof. Many ranchers have taken a keen interest in net wrap, as it typically offers better weather protection than twine and takes a fraction of the time to wrap and remove.

Tama and John Deere have stepped up to offer even further protection from weather; B-Wrap, a bale wrap that uses Tama SCM Technology, sheds moisture while also allowing water vapor to escape through microscopic pores in the fabric. A roll of B-wrap will wrap and protect 35 bales in 5’ width and 45 bales in 4’ width.
