I'm a city boy and even I know what that is :) I've seen farmers bail hay or alfalfa, and store it by wrapping it in white plastic such that a long tube is formed. I assume it's done by some mechanical process because the end product is pretty consistent and I've seen it range in length from only a few bails, to very long as above.

i've heard it called "silage", they use a 8' tall fan and blow hay and grass to the end of a long tube, the tube can really be an unlimited length. good call Admiral
