Frequently Asked Questions

Q) How do I tie my tarp down? 
A) We have several tie-down options available. Our standard hay tarp comes with a rope reinforced perimeter with grommets every 24” all the way around. You can use a rope to weave through the grommets and tie it down to anchors or you can use rope with a super cinch and hook. We also sell rubber tarps straps with s-hooks that can be used to hook into the grommets on the tarp and into your bale stack.  

Q) Do you carry any hay tarps in stock?
A) Yes, we typically carry 15’ x 60’ and 25’ x 60’ tarps in stock. For large orders or custom sizes you may need to order a few weeks in advance – especially during peak season.

Q) How long do your tarps last? 
A) It’s difficult to say how long a hay tarp will last because they can come in different material weights and be used for different applications. As long as you tie the tarp down properly and keep it from whipping in the wind for prolonged periods, your tarp should last several years.

Q) What size do I need? 
A) Our most common sizes are 15′ x 60′ and 25′ x 60′ but bales stacks come in all shapes and sizes. We do make custom tarps, so it’s up to you to determine the size. An easy way to measure your bale stack is to tie a weight to one end of a rope, throw it over your stack and measure the rope where it falls to your liking.
