New for farmers attending the 2015 National Farm Machinery Show last week, John Deere announced that the 469 Premium and 569 Premium Round Balers can now apply B-Wrap, the alternative to indoor storage.
John Deere Kentucky rep Steve Broome says B-Wrap comes in rolls and is rolled onto round bales just like regular net wrap. “It seals out all moisture, yet lets the bale breathe,” he explained. “This would be for someone baling good quality alfalfa, doesn’t have enough barn storage, this allows them to store it outside and still have good quality hay a year from now.”
Balers outfitted for B-Wrap can switch between netwrap and B-Wrap in just minutes by pushing a button on the monitor and switching the rolls on the baler. For the 2015 model year, Premium Balers will ship with a sample roll of both John Deere CoverEdge Netwrap and John Deere B-Wrap.
