A bale wrapper is a machine used in the agricultural industry to wrap round hay bales with a protective plastic film. The process of wrapping hay bales helps preserve their quality by reducing spoilage caused by exposure to moisture, air, and sunlight. Bale wrappers are commonly used in livestock farming, where high-quality forage is essential for animal nutrition.

The primary purpose of using a bale wrapper is to create an airtight seal around the bale, preventing the growth of mold, fungi, and bacteria, and preserving the nutritional value of the forage. The plastic film acts as a barrier, keeping the bale intact and safeguarding it from external elements that may degrade its quality. It also helps in maintaining the bale’s shape, making it easier to handle, transport, and store.

Bale wrappers can be operated either as standalone machines or as attachments to tractors or other agricultural equipment. They come in different sizes and configurations to accommodate various bale dimensions and production capacities.
