In the field of agriculture, baling has a number of uses, and one of them is making use of this beautiful product for a useful purpose. It is June, which means that it is hay harvesting time on many farms in northern Wisconsin. If you are just getting started, though, you may wonder how to count the exact amount of baling twine that you will need for this season. It is not difficult, but it requires some elementary algebra and some necessary math skills to work with: the weight of the bale, the number of strands, and the length of each strand.

The first thing that you will need is the weight of your bale. Calculate the weight using a ruler, measuring tape, or tape measure. The measurement you take should be based on the actual volume that the bale has. For example, if you have a 10-ft bale and a load of 1 pound per strand, then you need three strands. You need to make sure that you have the correct amount of strands before you get started. Too few and you risk not being able to string up enough for your application, too many and you risk having to throw away your bale because it was just too much.
Next, you will need to measure the length of the string that you will use. The length should be based on the number of strands per strand that you need, so if you are using three strands per strand, then you need to measure a total of thirty-five feet. After that, you need to measure the length of the strands that go between each strand. Make sure to measure accurately, and you will not be able to string up too many strands when you are stringing up a small batch. Click for more information now.
Now that you have the length and the strands, it is time to string the baling up. Make sure that all the strands are even, that they do not overlap each other, and that they are tied together neatly. If there is any unevenness, it will affect the way the baling hangs on the rope. It is better to have the strand end hanging down and tied tighter than hanging it straight down. You do not want the strand end to hang down tightly, either. It is also best to tie the baling strand to the string that goes across the top of the bale so that it will not fly away after a while.
