THE SCIENCE OF BUILDING A BETTER BALE

Bales that Work Harder

Once you’ve prepared and baled your crop, it’s time to calculate costs per acre, profits and storage. If you’ve done everything right, your denser bales have saved you money on net and film wrap, plus lower bale transportation and handling costs. Better yet, denser bales require less room to store, so you reduce waste with fewer bales left out in the elements.

Save on Net and Film Wrap

Fewer bales mean less money spent on wrapping. You’ll save more than $1 per bale on net wrap only. Film wrap your bales and you’ll save more than $3 per bale compared to the leading competitor. It pays to bale better.

Increased Bunk Life

Denser bales result in up to 25 hours longer whole-bale bunk life and more animal intake before spoilage. Up to 29% of competitive bales spoil and go to waste. On the other hand, high-density bales using a New Holland baler last longer while providing better feeding value to increase animal performance and reduce feed costs.³

Storage and Freight Savings

With fewer bales to store and move, you’ll save even more. Storage losses can really add up. You’ll prevent storage losses of up to $7.50 per bale thanks to fewer, denser bales. Better yet, you can save up to $3.15 per bale on freight, as you’ll be moving fewer bales.

G5040 Combi Bale Wrapper

Combine the productivity of a New Holland Roll-Belt™ round baler with an integrated Combi bale wrapper and you can bale and wrap simultaneously for instant quality results. Since there’s no need to make a second pass through the field, you save time, manpower and fuel. Making one trip also reduces ground compaction and plant damage to promote faster regrowth time and increased yield on subsequent harvests.
