Huesker offers a system solution for fast, efficient covering for silages. The tensioning system Agritec Silage Safe is installable immediately prior to deposition. It should provide an airtight seal for the silage, particularly at the edges, thereby significantly reducing fodder loss. Ensilage in several layers is possible. The maker states that the system subsequently allows rapid, straightforward silage removal with little physical effort. It is also possible to dispense with the tyres and sandbags typically needed for ballasting. Silo sheeting (provided by others) provides integral concrete protection for the silage pit walls. Rainwater can run off at the sides, where it is removed by perforated PVC drainage pipes. The maker mentions as further benefits a low purchase price and a minimum projected service life of ten years.
