Angled silage clamp walls
Sloping silage clamp walls have been popular across Europe for decades. Their advantages such as better silage quality, thanks to improved compaction up to the edge of the clamp wall, and greater safety, are now being promoted in the UK. The Bock UK silage wall, s l o p e d at a n a n g l e o f 2 3 degrees, is shortlisted in the New Product Competition at the UK Dairy Day 2017 in Shropshire next week. Many UK anaerobic digestion plants in the UK already have Bock clamps.
The company says it is much harder to compact silage along the shoulder of a vertical wall clamp. Bock says you can also pile silage up to 3m above the tops of the panels, in the middle of the clamp, which can’t be safely achieved with a vertical wall clamp.
The company’s clamps are supported by earth banks.
