Making Hay the New-Fashioned Way:
New Holland Bale Wrap Mobile App

When it comes to using cutting-edge technology to transform farming, New Holland Agriculture is a leader in the field. The farming equipment manufacturer recently teamed up with VIG to develop the Bale Wrap Mobile App to help farmers choose the right bale wrap for their hay, a decision that can save them—or cost them—major money with every harvest.

They wound up with a pretty sweet app.

Is it better to bale hay with net wrap or twine wrap? The question may be low-tech, but the answer doesn’t have to be thanks to New Holland Agriculture, a global manufacturer of hay and forage equipment. New Holland wanted to create a tool that would help farmers make the best choice for their situation every time.

Our Solution

Accurately determining whether to use net wrap or twine wrap is complex, requiring numerous calculations based on variables such as bale size and wrapping speed. VIG developed a mobile app that puts the answers at farmers’ fingertips from any mobile device.
