If you’re growing hay in your fields, then you need to ensure that you have the best storage facilities. If left exposed to the elements, moisture could start accumulating. For instance, rain could dampen your hay, resulting in the growth of fungus. This is why farmers need to keep their hay safe from the snow and the rain. In addition, they need to provide adequate protection from the wind as well.
To help farmers protect their hay from the elements, Polytex offers a comprehensive solution at cost effective rates. Our hay tarps offer ample protection from harsh weather conditions. It is worth noting that hay tarps are quite different from the regular tarps that people typically use. Designed for long-term outdoor use, these tarps are waterproof and mildew resistant. Thus, they can keep your produce free from moisture and mildew, while preventing any damage that moisture and moulds can cause. Moreover, the material we use for making these tarps also provides protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
Many farmers rely on our polytarps and shelter covers for covering their bales of hay. This minimises, if not eliminates, the need to spend money in constructing temporary or permanent shelters for the hay. Once you construct a permanent structure, you narrow your choices. For instance, you could find yourself having to use the same structure in the following season, even though you require the structure in another spot in your fields.
By using polyethylene bunker tarps, you can prevent your hay from rotting because of moisture and dampness. In addition, you can prevent insects from consuming the hay too. Farmers typically use the following products for keeping their hay secure.
- The Sleeved Hay Tarp: This tarp minimises wind damage by securing the covers to the larger haystack. It features a welded sleeve edge, into which farmers insert a one-inch metallic pipe to protect the tarp against wind flaps.
- The Ratch-e-Tarp: Renowned throughout Australia, this tarp offers the best protection for your hay.
