Can big round bales be stored in the open air?

Can big round bales be stored in the open air?

Landtechnische Zeitschrift (11): 1672-1676

Two methods of storing large round bales in the open air are discussed and compared: wrapping in plastic sheet in a purpose-built baler, without twine, and wrapping in plastic sheet after binding with twine; and stacking and covering with plastic sheet and bird netting. Economic benefits derived mainly from reduced losses and work time required to remove spoiled material.
