I saw somewhere the other day that someone was wrapping small squares for silage.

In my baler (don't ask - it was free) I have baled some stuff that was rather wet (20 to 25%) but I would have to think that baling silage type stuff would be awful hard on a baler...... has anyone made small square silage?

I have a bunch of Amish clients near me that have been doing this for nearly 10 years now. Use a tubeline rapper that squeazes 16 bales together at a time. A lot of old NH 273 and Deere 327's and 328's being used. Newer balers are better. Just loosen tension up and make bales about 2 ft long. that weigh 60 to 70 lbs. I have tested moistures from 25% up to 70% on this balage. Takes a strong back to git r done.
