The silage season is fast approaching! Are you well prepared? Hoopman Machines gives you tips for a top silo!
- DRY WEIGHT: A dry weight of about 30% to 40% is best to compact the grass silage or maize. Take care of the right way of mowing and raking to reduce sand in the silage.
- SUPPLY ROUTE: Silo plate and access road must be clean. Food debris and sand are a source of bacteria. Clean the road before and during the harvest regularly.
- SPREADING: Spread the silage in thin layers. With thin layers (max 30cm) the result is a better and faster compaction.
