Very Good!
I wish they would go one step further and test this.....which is better, coveredge or 48” net when butted together. The Germans seem to think 48” that butts together continues the “thatched roof” concept with no interruption, whereas the coveredge will allow water to seep.....I wonder which they were using for their test? Good info tho.....

I vote with the Germans on choosing 48'' over Coveredge. I wonder if my choice is due to the fact my Mom's parents emigrated from Germany has any bearing on my view point?????????

Me, too. My real last name is Lorenz. Last name changed to Anglo Saxon name at the outbreak of WW II. 

I hear Texas is loaded with Germans.

Hay shed is great if you can afford it (which is easier the fewer bales you use). Building a building to house 800 or 1k+ bales and will withstand 8 foot of snow on the roof is very costly. SCtrailriders shed wouldn't last thru its first November UP here.

Schulenburg, Giddings, La Grange, Hallettsville, Weimer, New Braunfels, Goliad, Seguin, Schertz, Brenham,.......to name a few "Burgs".

 

And let us not forget Fredericksburg, Home of Chester A. Nimitz, Pacific Fleet Commander, USN, WWII.

 

I went to school with a Frederick S. Burg from guess where in the 7th and 8th grades.   He was bi-lingual as you would guess and fluent in both.

I did something different this year, rather than hide my hay under every covering (shed variety) I could find, I told my main buyer, who just bought a new tractor and it's not getting much use, to come and get it.  Saved him delivery fees and got to play with his new toy.  For me, freed up my covered space for my toys and he got to see what my fresh hay looked like.
