How B-Wrap™ Protects Bales B-Wrap protects your hay (and straw and crop residue) almost like it was stored indoors. The secret is a patented material that features Tama SCM Technology. Tama SCM Technology does two things. First, it sheds water, keeping rain, snow, and ground moisture from damaging hay quality. Second, Tama SCM Technology has microscopic pores that let water vapor, inside the bale, escape. 2 The microscopic pores are crucial to preserving hay quality. In the past, farmers have covered bales with water-proof plastic, only to find mold had formed on the outside of the bale...

When a bale reaches the maximum size programmed into the monitor, the operator stops forward travel and the wrapping begins. The first length of B-Wrap is made up of one revolution of John Deere CoverEdge™ Netwrap.

The next length of B-Wrap includes the patented material with Tama SCM technology (described on the opposite page). One full revolution...

Frequently Asked Questions Q. Doesn’t netwrap do a good job protecting hay quality? A. Netwrap does protect hay inside the bale. But bales stored outside lose quality on the outer couple inches of the bale, as well as from ground moisture wicking up into the bale.

Q: What does my baler need in order to use B-Wrap? A: Most John...

Here’s what hay growers say about B-Wrap™ “Our cattle will go and eat hay from a B-Wrap bale before they eat a net-wrapped bale, even though the hay came from the same field, baled the same day. And for bales covered in snow or ice, the B-Wrap comes off so much easier than net”. Darron Schoen, dairy farmer, Freistatt, Missouri “After a year stored outside, you open up a B-Wrap bale and it’s just like the day we baled it. At the hay auction there was a lot of interest, and our B-Wrap bales were the highest-priced hay sold that day”. Mark McGrory, hay and grain farmer, Victor, Iowa “On the...

Even after a winter outside, with B-Wrap we have such nice and clean straw, just...
