You can lose a lot more than
silage to spoilage. Feeding
spoiled silage effects herd health
and productivity. One easy way
to reduce spoilage is to properly
manage the feedout face. With the
HLA Silage facer, you can do this
quicker and easier than before.
To reduce dry matter losses it is critical that the feeding face of the bunker is left tight, smooth and vertical. The more the face is disturbed, the more the silage is exposed to oxygen. This exposure causes spoilage which can lead to major dry matter losses. The cracks and gouges that are formed using a loader bucket allow spoilage to happen not only on the face but deep within the bunker.
The Silage Facer also allows
a more controlled removal of
silage from the face, allowing you
to more precisely manage the
bunker face. Because the face is
kept smooth, tight and vertical,
it is also safer, eliminating large
chunks from falling. The silage is
also more uniform in texture and
consistency making it easier to
blend in a feed mixer.
The HLA Silage Facer not only helps you decrease spoilage, it also increases your efficiency. The facer’s aggressive teeth are powered by two hydraulic motors designed to power through the toughest silage. The Silage Facer is available in two models, frame only and built in bucket. Increase your efficiency, reduce silage loss and protect your herd, with an HLA Silage Facer.
