the most important advantages of sealed grain storage

For pig breeders

  • high nutritional value - please see Report, 2010. Sealed storage entails higher nutrient value, so that less feed and less feed additives are required
  • storage requires a minimum of work load
  • meets any future requirements of pure feed without salmonella infection for instance - as no vermin can live in a sealed stored grain silo
  • barley, wheat and corn are stored separately, so the feed mixing always can be optimized

In cattle farming:

  • improved feed structure by milling
  • cow stomachs digest sealed stored grain really well 

For poultry producers - broilers and layers:

  • it is a closed system - no contamination from sources of salmonella infection
  • tests show increased digestibility of sealed stored moist grain - and consequently less feed consumption
  • increased demands for CO2 treated grain from poultry consumers are accommodated by sealed storage

Common for all 3 types of farm animals:

  • Future-proofed production re. fluctuating and higher energy proces for drying - as the grain in a sealed silo is not dried at all
  • you can start harvesting earlier - as you are not dependent of the moisture content in the grain - grain with up to 20-22% can be handled without problems in a sealed silo
  • moist grain produces less dust, which results in a better working environment
  • grain transport costs are at an absolut minimum - as the grain is stored directly from the field into the silo, and then used for feeding your animals
  • any future requirements to environment friendly storage are accommodated - minimum energy consumption and minimum phosphorus and nitrogen discharge
  • no recorded damages from snow loads 
  • keep your own feed on your own farm to ensure traceability
