Production of baled hay uses a large amount of your resources: land, labor, seed, fuel, fertilizer and equipment. The way you store your hay after baling can have a large impact on hay quality and quantity. Hay stored unprotected will be damaged by rain, snow, wind, and ice during fall and winter. The average round bale loses around 25% of its original nutrients when stored unprotected outside. Markets that demand top quality hay will also require hay storage buildings that offer full protection from weather. Cleary offers a wide variety of options for hay storage and will design your building specific to your needs. The two primary options for hay storage are fully enclosed and “roof only” structures. Fully enclosed structures can be open at one end for ease of filling and to allow for adequate natural ventilation. Roof only structures are professionally designed by Cleary engineers to maintain their strength in all types of weather conditions.
“Working with Cleary really was an easy process, and the warranty and finish on the building are great. We put this building up 6 years ago and we’ve had people say ‘wow, a brand new house.’ It looks great, and we never really touch it. We recommend a Cleary building to anyone we talk to. It’s such a joy to live in. We love it!”
Erik Anderson, Cleary Home Owner
“Our Cleary building has really worked out well for us. The crews were great to work with, the supervision was great on the job and we just very happy with how everything turned out. The whole building process went very smooth with Cleary, and they very easy to work with, which I think is the biggest difference that separates them from the competition.”
Ric Joranlien, Cleary Commercial Building Owner and Owner of Hawks Mill Winery
“I would definitely recommend Cleary because of their workmanship and their pricing, which is very reasonable. I priced out different companies and Cleary was very comparable. I was more than pleased with all of the work that Cleary put into my building and the entire building process.”
