It is called bale yet set of elements that are tied to form a block and thus facilitate its transfer or storage. Bales are usually merchandise that are intended to be transported between different points.
For example: "Please help me accommodate the bales of clothes in the warehouse", "The police discovered several bundles of marijuana hidden in the back of the truck", "The cotton bales are ready for transport".
The bales of straw , also called straw bales and bales of straw , are pressed blocks that are used for the preservation of the food that the animals ingest in the countryside . Initially, bales used to have a prism shape, although cylindrical bales are currently preferred since they can be handled with machinery.
Various crops that are destined for fodder can be cut and processed so that, when dried, the bales can be formed. Usually each bale of straw weighs about eighteen kilograms.
In many cases, it is not easy to produce a bale of satisfactory quality, especially if we do it in an unfavorable time. If we have to prepare it in spring, for example, weather factors can affect the quality considerably. When reserving fodder it is assumed that the material It will change from the day it is collected until the moment it is used, and that is why it is so important to choose the best possible crop.
In addition to the quality of the material, it is necessary to collect it at the appropriate time according to the species and have decided which animals we will give the bale. On the other hand, we must also pay attention in the phases that follow the cut, that is to say in the bundling, storage and, finally, the supply itself, to minimize the chances of quality loss.
Cutting pasture at the ideal time is not easy, since it partly depends on the type of crop. For example, in the case of ryegrass, oatmeal or barley , the vegetative state directly influences the dry matter yield (that is, the quality and quantity that can be harvested) and this determines the best time to cut them. With the passage of time, the plant becomes more mature and this has a positive impact on the dry matter yield, although negatively on the percentage of protein it contains.
In the case of grasslands, the best time for cutting coincides with the flowering of grasses and legumes. Alfalfa, on the other hand, is a brilliant alternative given its nutritional qualities and forage quality; With respect to the moment at which it is recommended to cut it, experts indicate that it is between the beginning and the middle of the flowering process, when considerable volumes of matter Dry without losing quality.
To know if the cut material has the right degree of moisture to be wrapped, some experts scratch the stems: if the epidermis of the plant comes off, then it is not ready yet.
At language colloquial of some regions, we usually talk about bale with reference to a load heavy that one person delegates to another to not take care of it: "My partner went on vacation and left me the bundle", "The former president inaugurated a work that does not work and passed the burden to the current president", “Tell the owner of the company to take charge and not to throw the burden on others”.
"The bundle" Finally, it is the title of a story written by the Nicaraguan author Ruben Dario that is part of your book "Blue" , published in 1888 .
