Roundpressed Straws

Rolls of straw

After harvest a lot of straws are left behind. Some machine – I understand it is a roundpressmachine (one word in danish) - made a lot of rolls, compressing the straws for easier transportation. I also understand that a squarepresser uses more energy than the roundpresser, but squarepressed straws are cheaper to transport because of their form.
