New Baled Silage Technology Launched

The Film&Film System is a new, dual film technology from the manufacturers of Silotite (used to wrap +40 million bales worldwide pa) that delivers better quality silage through greater bale density and an enhanced oxygen barrier.

This innovation minimises waste of scarce and valuable forage while facilitating easier recycling of the products used.

Reflecting the success of the Film&Film System is its adoption by a number of high profile equipment manufacturers including New Holland and Orkel who have developed machines that can bale and wrap silage without using twine or netwrap.

This involves the combined use of a wide polythene film (known as ‘Mantle’ film) alongside Silotite Pro Technology balewrap. Mantle film replaces the traditional netwrap used to bind crops into a bale format. Together these two films form the Film&Film System.

Having visited farmers who used the new system, Sean O’Connor, General Manager for Ireland has been impressed by the quality of the mould free bales when opened. Another benefit is a cost saving (at current netwrap prices) of about 70 cents/bale or around 15%.
