By storing your silage in a bag you can achieve the following benefits and more!
Priced similarly to baling and wrapping, however with Ag-Bag you get all the advantages associated with feeding chopped forage.
When harvesting, the bagger is packing your silage crop and covering it at the same time, resulting in reducing harvest. Trailers tip directly into the AgBag machines front hopper, therefore soil contamination from dirty trailer wheels is no longer a problem.
Storing Agricultural feedstocks in an AgBag ensures high preservation of nutrients because of the airtight conditions, liquor retention and re-absorption post-fermentation also mean far more nutrients are re-absorbed into the silage rather than running off into an effluent tank and wasted. - Silage bags are best suited to mid-high DM crop storage, >28% DM. There are valves fitted to the end of the bags to enable sucking out excess liquor in low DM occasions.
An important factor affecting the cost of silage production is the Dry Matter (DM) losses associated with silage storage and feeding out. Using the DB Contracting AgBag system, it reduces storage losses significantly, 2 - 3% compared with up to 20% or more that can occur with alternative silage processes - 8% bales and 20% or more in some clamp situations.
Our 10-foot diameter bags reduce feed-out losses to a minimum compared with big wide clamp faces that can take up to a week or more to get over.
DB Contracting AgBags can be placed on any firm level ground allowing them to be placed in different areas of the farm to suit individual requirements. Unlimited low-cost storage capacity where you want it when you need it.
3 - 4 times less plastic used than the same tonnage stored in bales. Good for the environment and good for your pocket. Farmers can significantly reduce their silage production costs and thus improve their financial profitability by using our silage bagging system.
