Streamlining Silage Covering: Save Time and Resources on Your Dairy Farm

Streamlining Silage Covering: Save Time and Resources on Your Dairy Farm

We all know the importance of a well-managed silage stockpile for our dairy herds. But let's face it, times are changing. Finding reliable labor can be a real challenge these days. Whether you're struggling to find enough workers or relying on outside covering services, silage covering can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive job. 

The Family Farm and Beyond 

Traditionally, family farms relied on their own folks to get the work done. But as times have changed, many farmers are looking for ways to do more with less. Automation has helped in many areas, with milking robots and automated feeders taking over some of the heavy lifting. 

However, silage covering remains a task that often requires a good crew. Some areas have seen a rise in custom covering companies, which can be a lifesaver for busy dairy farmers. Still, even these companies face struggles finding enough workers to keep up with demand. 

Finding Efficiency in a Labor-Strained Market 

Smaller farms and those in areas without established covering services might resort to creative solutions like student work crews. But even then, organizing and managing a crew adds another layer of complexity. 

Here at Silostop, we understand the challenges you face. That's why we developed Silostop Complete – a one-step solution designed to save you both time and money on silage covering. 

Silostop Complete: Combining Benefits, Reducing Steps 

Silostop Complete takes the best of both worlds: 

  • High Oxygen Barrier: The same trusted oxygen barrier technology from our original Silostop Orange plastic keeps your silage fresher for longer. 
  • Weather and Pest Protection: The black and white design offers superior UV protection, while the impressive 6-mil thickness safeguards your silage from harsh weather and pesky critters. 
  • One-Step Application: Ditch the hassle of layering two separate plastics. Silostop Complete combines everything you need in a single, easy-to-use sheet. 

By streamlining the silage covering process, Silostop Complete allows you to spend less time managing crews and more time focusing on what matters most – your herd.
