Used to cover haystacks, grain and other agricultural products silage covers are made from modern UV resistant material. Waterproof and designed to protect silage from the weather, they are also designed for use in transportation of silage to prevent spillage.
A major factor is the protection of the nutritional properties of silage, which can quickly be lowered by water and atmospheric exposure.
Modern silage covers are also impact resistant to minimise accidental tearing and piecing.
Color’s vary with reflective white sometimes being used to minimise heat from solar radiation. This is important in maintaining stable temperatures in bulk storage.
The reflective nature of the white is important in reducing the risk of silage pit fires and also by reducing temperatures will minimise mould growth.
Most good covers can be excepted to give between 3 and 5 years use. Warrantees will differ and are sometimes related to UV protection. Most are made of a woven polyethylene fabric. Oxygen barrier silage film is also available.
