Your photos: pink bale fever spreads

We asked, you answered. Farmers Weekly readers have been posting their photos of pink bales to our gallery on FWi.

Farmers have responded with enthusiasm to the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity initiative by wrapping their bales in pink wrap. The Breast Cancer Campaign gets a donation for every roll of wrap sold.

We set up a special Pink Bale Gallery, hoping to see photos of pink bales dotting the fields of the UK and Ireland from our readers and here’s a selection of your photos. Keep them coming!

“Southwick Farm are donating £5 per bale of Pink haylage and are asking our customers to do the same, hopefully that will be an extra £600 to Breast Cancer Awareness”.

Glastonbury – not just for festivals!

Picture from Harvey Smith – a farmer/contractor near to Glastonbury Festival. He made some round bales at Worthy Farm using the pink wrap, which raises money for breast cancer charities.
