Our nets are made of very solid knotless polypropylene (PPM) netting, which you can get from us in different yarn strengths and mesh sizes.
Compared to conventional round bale nets, which are sewn in a box shape, our nets have a cylindrical shape and are manufactured to fit the different round bale sizes. This means that the bale retains its "shape" even when the amount of hay is decreasing and less "excess" netting material remains.
Not only do our hay nets allow you to offer your animal hay in small portions throughout the day, but you also save up to 50%, since considerably less hay is represented.
Accessory 1: Optionally you can also purchase a very stable hot-dip galvanized iron ring, which is firmly connected to the edge of the net. With this ring the handling is much easier, because the ring with the net only has to be put over the round bale, no lashing or tensioning is necessary anymore. You can increase the weight of the ring by filling it with dry sand (quartz sand). For this purpose we have provided the metal rings with an opening and a plastic clip to close them.
Accessory 2: Alternatively, we can also offer you a ring made of PE pipe with Ø 32mm diameter. This ring is intended for self-assembly and is supplied with a brass connector and braided cord (to be attached to the ring). For weight increase we recommend filling with dry sand.
Accessories 3: Furthermore we can offer you a galvanized iron chain for weight increase. By simply "threading" it through the lower edge meshes, the net gets the necessary weight to slide easily over the bale and then lie safely on the ground.
For the connection of the two ends a chain connection is included.
Note: Experience shows that it is better to choose a net with a diameter of 10 cm larger, as the round bales vary.
