More and more farmers are relying on bagged silage for good reason: Quality of their stored silage feed is improved by preserving it in these airtight storage units.
There are several advantages to bagging silage. First is feed quality. The silage-storage bags retain almost all the crop’s dry matter and nutritional elements. Typically, corn or hay crops are chopped and packed by a machine into the bags. The crop then goes through a fermentation process to preserve the feed and make it appealing for cattle consumption.
The fermentation process is critical to making quality silage. Once sealed in the bag, beneficial anaerobic fermentation begins to turn the fresh crop into silage. To aid the process, the silage bags are virtually airtight, preserving the palatability, appearance, smell and appeal of the feed. The less oxygen present, the better the conversion becomes, causing the feed to retain more of its energy and protein properties.
Bagging silage is very cost-effective. Bagged silage storage is a less expensive feed storage system than silos or bunkers. Instead of having a large investment in upright silos (which can cost from $100,000 to $150,000) or the investment in bunkers (which can cost as much as $250,000), the whole system of bagged feed storage costs roughly $5 to $6 per ton. Farmers
who switched to bagging silage also found they eliminated silo or bunker maintenance costs and repair bills.
Then there’s the shrinkage and spoilage factor. Because silage stored in bags doesn’t have air affecting the product, if you bag 10,000 tons of silage, you’re going to get close to 10,000 tons out. If you stored that same amount of silage in a bunker, you’re only going to get about 8,000 tons, even though you put in 10,000 tons.
That’s a 20% loss. Bunker-style storage loss can cost $10,000 for every 1,000 tons of silage. By bagging silage, you’re going to have more feed, and you might be able to reduce the acreage required to feed your cattle. Or, if you do harvest the same amount of acreage, you’re going to have surplus to sell.
Another advantage is versatility. There are bagging systems available for the smallest to the largest dairy or livestock operation. And there is no limit to the types of feedstuffs that can be stored in a bag. Different crops can easily be kept in their own separate bags, and even different cuttings from one field can be stored in separate bags on the farm, providing the choice of feed type and quality to feed to various animals.
