Pink wrapped silage bales

After raising £10,000 for breast cancer charities last year, pink silage wrap is making a comeback this season.

For every roll of its pink Topwrap film purchased, Volac will donate £3 to Breast Cancer Now.

For farmers wishing to support the charity in a more understated fashion, this year for the first time Volac is giving away pink stickers in return for donations.

Last year, pink bale fever spread across the country with hundreds of farmers taking part.

“As well as helping the charity by opting for the special pink silage wrap, farmers will also be visibly demonstrating their support as they produce brightly coloured pink bales on their farms,” said Volac product manager, Jackie Bradley.

“Alternatively, with limited supplies of the pink wrap, or for farmers who want to support the charity but prefer their bales in more traditional colours, we are also providing special pink stickers.

“These can be attached to the usual green or black bales, so that farmers can still demonstrate their support.”
