BaleSafe

BaleSafe is a hay, haylage and straw preservative that will put an end to spoilt and dusty bales.  It is designed to retain the nutritional and hygienic quality of forage in any conditions and  particularly comes into its own in a catchy weather season.

Capable of preserving the quality of hay and straw at up to 25% moisture, BaleSafe will also preserve wrapped haylage at 50-75% dry matter. Its unique blend of non-corrosive ingredients include propionic and benzoic acids together with human food-grade preservatives which have been independently proven to stop the development of yeasts and moulds in their tracks.

No one likes to open mouldy bales, and this product will ensure the waste associated with moulds and yeasts becomes a thing of the past.

Moisture Meter

The Wile 25 is a simple, reliable and easy to use moisture meter. The dish probe (as shown) allows crop moisture levels to be quickly and accurately assessed in the field prior to baling to ensure  BaleSafe is applied at the correct rate. An optional, interchangeable bale probe is also available.
