Tarps Plus™ Continues Its Consumer Education Series -  The Facts on Hay TarpsBales of Hay if left uncovered in the weather, will deteriorate quickly and the nutritional content will be a thing of the past. Horses love their fresh Hay; the key here is “Fresh”. Tarps Plus UV treated Hay Tarps will help prevent the formation of rot and moisture and are designed for long-term coverage.

Georgetown, Texas – August 30, 2021 – Weather is really unpredictable, but what is very predictable is that farmers can lose a fortune of money if their load of Hay Bales starts to rot. It doesn’t take long before an entire load of Hay Bales could go bad. Farmers use Hay for not only feed, but also for animal bedding. Tarps Plus has high quality Hay Tarps in different sizes that will protect the Hay from Moisture, Sun, and UV Damage. Hay Tarps and Hay Bale Covers range in twelve different sizes to fit multiple hay bale configurations. 

Despite their name, hay tarps are actually used for much more than hay. The average farmer will have a whole gamut of uses for these handy accessories, making them nearly a necessity for any farm setting. Anyone involved in raising hay can tell of the many hours of hard work that are involved. It is not just plowing the ground, but planting the seed, making sure the fertilizer is just right and being sure it is properly watered. Sometimes, there is the problem of insect or blight, which requires special chemicals. Once hay is grown and harvested it is important that it be protected from the weather with hay tarps. 

Tarps Plus™ Hay Tarps are built to last and protect the hay from mold and rot. These “Hay Tarps” are made with a thick polyethylene coating and UV treatment inside the material. Each hay tarp has reinforced corner bars on all four corners and are made with a very tight woven polyethylene weave which makes it dense and durable. The tarps have heavy duty handles along the long sides and corners of the tarp to help secure it down. Such things as the correct bungee cords, steel ground stakes, tarp tape, clamps and many others are crucial if the tarps are to stay in place with bad weather.

Some tarps do not hold up in bad weather and start leaking which is disastrous and can cause the grower to lose most of the crop. After harvesting, hay must be properly cured to avoid it forming mold and becoming unusable. Choosing the correct tarp is very important if one is to  protect their hay until it can be sold or used. 

How one stores their hay depends on whether it is for personal use or to be sold. Hay usually sells much better in the off-season so many farmers put the hay under tarps immediately after it is cured and then sell it at a later date. When this is the case, having the correct tarp is essential to keeping it in good condition until the sale.
