Farmers in Australia have usually relied on hay barns for keeping their hay safe. But, not all farmers have ample space on their fields for constructing these permanent structures. Others simply don’t have the budget that the construction and maintenance of these structures typically involves. The use of hay tarps helps in circumventing the issue.
The hay tarps that Polytex produces are not the same as the plastic hay tarps that are commonly sold across the country. Those tarps offer good protection while minimising field transportation. As such, farmers can store their bales of hay in their fields, without having to build permanent structures. These tarps are cheap and will keep water off the bales of hay. In addition, you could even use those tarps in your cattle shade structures too. But, as the bales of hay dry, these tarps could end up trapping significant levels of moisture. Moreover, they usually do not offer any protection from exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
In contrast, the hay or bunker tarps that Polytex supplies are the best in the industry. We make our tarps with a breathable material that lets moisture out of the bale. In addition, this material also prevents the precipitation from penetrating it. This superior material ensures that:
The hay remains secure even in the heaviest of rains
The hay remains secure because the tarp can resist wind lifting
The passage of air and vapour prevents the occurrence of moulds
The tarp permits maximum drying of damp straw even after the heaviest downpours
The tarp is tear-resistant and,
The tarp can withstand ultraviolet lights just as our pig shelters and poultry curtains do, thereby keeping your produce safe
