Re: Bagging Silage
Sure is a different machine to I have ever seen here in Tasmania!

We have never (to my knowledge) used this method of fodder conservation. The nearest we have to something like this is tubeline wrapping of round bale silage.

Any chopped forage is put into a pit, as bulk silage.

The bags we use are 10' diameter and 300' long. We pack between 250 and 300 tons into these bags. We have stored silage for two years like this, as long as you can keep holes out of the bags there is no feed quality loss. The 500 hp machines can unload 12-15 tons of barley silage off a truck in around 45-60seconds.

Thanks Russ,

Seems like a good idea, just never caught on here.

I think I have seen pics of it, on the mainland of Australia, some big beef operations may have been playing around with it in the mid- late 1980's (silopress was the name of the machine I think)
