Well I hate to tell you guys across the pond but

we beat you all to it! Round bale silage was invented

by a Brit in the 1980s. The method of conserving

silage in round bales in silage was pioneered in

the 1980"s by a British farmer called Lloyd

Forster. The original method was to put them into

big plastic bags sealed with cable ties which was

a very slow and tedious job and the results were

"mixed" to say the least. Then whilst travelling

through Australia Mr. Forster was approached by a

firm that was making a machine to wrap bales in

plastic. However,the first successful machine for stretch wrapping

silage bales was built by Kverneland in

association with Mr. Forster and a British animal feed company

called Volac. We bought one almost as soon as they

appeared on the market because we were sick of

making poor quality hay due to a run of very wet

summers we were having at the time. If made

correctly, round bale silage is wonderful stuff.

Lloyd Forster

Edit. While I was researching this, I found that sadly Mr. Forster died last April.
