After putting the roughage in the pit, you can cover your roughage within half an hour.
By optimally sealing your roughage airtight it is optimally preserved.
The system does not use big porches or platforms on your roughage.
In the past we stored our roughage in bales, but since last year we changed to a tractor accessible roughage pile. We looked at different types of sealing systems. The biggest disadvantages of these systems is that they are very costly. The relatively low price and the easy manner of sealing and unsealing was for us the main reason to choose for Silage Safe.
When I want to cover my new trench silo of 80 meters with hoses and car tires it takes me a few hours. Now that I use the Silage Safe system I am able to seal my pit within an hour. Furthermore, opening the pit is much faster and applying a different type of cut is much easier.
We have a trench silo with a single dividing wall. The main problem is therefore the fact that water always seeps into the roughage. We also ran out of car tires that we used in the past. After looking at different options we chose for Silage Safe. The drains at the bottom of the pit perfectly drain of rainwater.
