SupaCova

Why use SupaCova?

SupaCova reliably protects hay bales from wind and rain, while allowing the bales to breathe, preventing condensation. The nutritional quality of the hay is preserved for the entire storage period, and mould development is eliminated.

Correct storage after harvest is essential to minimise dry matter loss and maintain forage quality. 

Some dry matter loss is unavoidable, typically about 5 percent. However, improper storage can cause losses of 30 percent or more. 

Nutrient losses in the outer layer of bales can be substantial, even at a small depth in a bale.

4ft by 4ft (1.2m x 1.2m) bale - outer layer as a proportion of the total bale:

2 inches (5cm)   = 16%
4 inches (10cm) = 31%
6 inches (15cm) = 44%
8 inches (20cm) = 56%

Most damage to bales is caused by weathering and leaching.

SupaCova’s advanced protection technology minimises the effects of these factors to protect hay quality all year round.
