Kamp and Brown's patent "consists in moistening of short-cut hay for and previous to baling with a brine or solution of common salt, and baling it while moistened, whereby several desirable results are obtained, the most important of which are, first, that a degree of adhesiveness is produced between the particles which prevents the hay from wasting so much from the exposed outer portions of the bale in handling and transportation..."
