Tips on Hay Storage for Export


If hay storage for export is part of your business, quality is crucial. Farms purchase your hay rather than make their own not just for the convenience, but because your hay is better. It looks nice, it feels nicer and it makes better feed. For this reason, you cannot let your hay degrade during the exporting process. You must know how to export hay in a way that your buyers get the same quality you are making. To ensure this, you need to know how to store hay to export.

How to Export Hay: Sleeves

As you can see, a lot goes into finding a storage site for hay to be exported. An alternative to a large and costly hay storage site is woven polypropylene hay sleeves. Good sleeves effectively protect your hay from the elements, water damage and mildew, and they make sure your hay arrives on site just about as fresh as when you cut it.

If you can find quality sleeves, you will find a far greater value compared to the cost of paying for and managing a large facility just to protect your hay and prepare it for export. But again, quality is critical. Hay sleeves that tear or rip or allow your hay to absorb water and collect mildew are worthless to you.

Finding Quality Hay Sleeves: Woven Virgin Polypropylene

For the best and most cost-saving option, consider the hay sleeves provided by Midwestern Bag & Supply, made from woven virgin polypropylene. This material is ideal for packing hay, because it is flexible, durable and, most importantly, water-resistant. This protects your against water, snow, ice and ground moisture, meaning less mildew, stretching and shrinking, and a product that arrives fresher at its destination than hay packed with some other methods, even when your area endures tough weather conditions.
