A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Making great silage or cereal home-grown animal feeds is a chain reaction that links each stage of production, through preservation, packing and protecting, ensuring the products and techniques employed combine to deliver great results time and again.

Just one weak link in the process risks breaking the chain, thus jeopardising the overall quality, nutritional value and palatability of your valuable silage crop.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Working in unison, these products are proven to help farmers produce great quality silage or cereal home-grown animal feeds, even in the most challenging conditions.

Process

Grain Crimping Machines and Dry Grain Roller Mills – to suit every size of projected throughput for cereal grains and pulses, either dry (up to 25% moisture) or crimping and ensiling (from 25 to 45% moisture). We offer an extensive range of Finnish-manufactured Murska / Korte machines that meet our exacting standards of engineering excellence and reliability.

Preserve

Safesil Pro and Safesil challenge 
– for all forages dependent on dry matter. Will ensure fast efficient fermentation with maximum nutrient and dry matter retention and minimal aerobic stability losses at feedout. Safesil Pro is ideal for wholecrop, producing a clean fermentation, resulting in a more palatable and richer in nutrients feed from wholecrop and pulses.

Balesafe – for preserving the quality of hay and straw at up to 25% moisture. It will also preserve wrapped haylage at 50-75% dry matter, and is proven to stop the development of yeasts and moulds in its tracks.

SilaSpray Compact – applicator for accurate application of preservatives through your crimper, baler or forager.

CrimpSafe 300 and CrimpSafe Hi-Dry – CrimpSafe 300 ensures a controlled fermentation and maximum nutrient retention for ensiled crimped grain above 25% moisture content. For effective preservation and ensiling of grain below 25% use CrimpSafe Hi-Dry.

Propcorn NC – is a proven, non-corrosive successor to Propcorn. Safer to use, and with 70% less fumes than straight propionic acid, it is suitable for preserving whole or rolled grain and pulses with a moisture content of up to 25%, in aerobic conditions.

Proflake NC – is designed to improve the physical quality of dry-rolled grain, and increase the storage life of processed cereals by up to 3 months. It inhibits yeasts and mould growth, and mycotoxin formation and ensures significant reduction in dust levels, helping to improve animal health and performance.

 

Prepare

Klampclips – Like an extra pair of hands during clamp filling. Manufactured from spring stainless steel and made-to-measure for different clamp wall thicknesses. Available in packs of 25.

Side Sheets – essential to ensure a complete airtight seal. Heavy duty, 150μm, clear plastic in 50-metre rolls and in widths of 4, 5 and 6 metres.

Protect

O2 Barrier 2in1 – the single sheet which transforms into two. Polyamide vacuum film layer up to 10 times less oxygen-permeable than conventional silage film that reduces time and labour required to seal the clamp.

Farmguard – high-strength, recyclable silage sheeting. Uses advanced seven-layer technology for improved durability and tensile strength, tear  resistance, a high degree of UV protection and easy, lightweight handling. Farmguard’s barrier to oxygen is up to 100 times that of standard silage sheeting.

Silage Safe – the ultimate clamp protection system. With a projected service life of at least 10 years, this strap tensioning system eliminates the need for any other weighting. Its 2-metre modular design allows for quick deployment and removal.

ClampShield 500 – the ultimate protection for ensiled forage crops but with up to 75% less single-use plastic. This breathable polypropylene fleece can be reused over many years. Waterproof, easy to lay, and affording protection against birds. Sheets can be joined with hook and loop tape.

BaleShield 160 – durable protection for hay, straw and wrapped forage bales. Strong tear-resistant waterproof fleece can be used time and again. Ideal for protecting forage in the open close to where it’s needed. Sheets can be joined with hook and loop tape and held in place with clamps and screws supplied.

Pack

SilaPactor – removes the air from wholecrop, maize and grass silage clamps to ensure a fast, efficient fermentation with minimal losses, while making best use of available clamp space and reducing risk of air penetrating the face during feedout.
