ORDER pink Topwrap bale silage film and for every roll bought Trioplast, your local merchant and Volac will jointly donate £3 to Breast Cancer Now the charity funding projects at 30 research centres.
 
 Last year this Volac pink wrap campaign generated over £10k for research into breast cancer, a disease impacting on one in every eight women at some stage in their lives.

 These brightly coloured bales across the countryside also serve as a reminder that women should avail of free NHS breast screening health checks. Appointments no woman should miss no matter how busy their precious life has become.
 
 Currently Breast Cancer Now funding for research includes two projects at Queen’s University Belfast led by Dr Niamh Buckley.
 
 Topwrap RS1900 pink bale wrap from Volac has 1900m of film on a roll, as opposed to the standard green wrap sold with 1500m. On average Topwrap RS1900 is 7% cheaper than standard wrap and wraps 26.6% more bales.
 
Farmers and contractors are urged to order their pink wrap promptly from their local merchants.
