In that silo did it just rain or was there a lot of spoilage?

Re: silage in NZ
Basically they are outdoor clamps. Guys who make precision chop silage here make it in outdoor clamps. Some spoilage occurs, esp towards the end of the clamp.The floor of these pits are usually dirt, not concrete too.

You must remember these pics are from 1990.

Re: silage in NZ
We used to put up a lot of silage and high mostiure corn but we have gone completely to high mostiure corn. When we had a silage pile we tarpped one pile and left one uncovered. on the one that was uncovered it had a layer of 30 inches were it was bad but we never had a lot of spoilage and what we did have we composted. We didn't have a pit though we just dumped on the ground.

Quite alot of the sheep & beef guys who make bulk silage here just dump on top of the ground, in the paddock or in a central site to the 3-4 paddocks they cut & chop.
