Silage Bunkers for maize or crop
We construct high quality concrete bunkers for maize and grass silage
Our construction method incorporates a heavy-duty reinforced concrete floor with concrete tilt panel walls, either 1.8m or 2.4m high. We lean the walls out slightly at the top so that even when the silage shrinks in the stack, it maintains contact with the walls. Its important to minimise the air gap that could otherwise form here, which would result in spoiled silage.
The juices that leach out from silage can be very aggressive on concrete, resulting in corrosion and damage to the concrete surface. The Chapman Dairy™ designed silage bunker is built to be tough and long lasting.
