Silage Pad and Silage Pit Covers

In November 2005 a silage pad area was constructed for pit silage at a cost of $16,839.50.

Currently DemoDAIRY is using two types of pit covers - one involving the use of standard Black/White silage film with 100% tyres and the other system uses an Oxygen Barrier silage film called Silostop sealed and weighted with gravel filled bags.

The purpose of the Silostop System is to reduce amount of tyres needed, quicker stack coving and less manual handling required.
