Silostop White on Black Ultimate Oxygen Barrier Film is a 110 micron impermeable film which looks just like a regular white on black silage cover but incorporates the patented Silostop technology which prevents the entry of oxygen into the silage.
It is strong, easy to use, and very cost effective. Use of Silostop Ultimate Oxygen Barrier Film results in minimal silage loss, improved animal intake and improved animal health.
Typically users save between $0.75 to $4 per ton (£0.50 to £3.50 / €1 to €4.50 per tonne) of silage by covering with Silostop instead of conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic.
Surface spoilage is virtually eliminated, saving you money on labour to remove waste silage.
Dry matter loss is reduced in the top 3 feet (1m) of silage by up to 50% compared to conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic.
Aerobic stability is increased by up to two and a half days, so silage on the feedout face and in front of the cows stays fresh and nutrient rich longer.
Despite being considerably thinner than conventional black plastic, Silostop is strong, durable and safe to walk on without the risk of tearing.
Silostop films are thinner and less bulky than conventional plastics and are therefore cheaper to recycle or dispose of.
All Silostop facts are backed up by years of published research.
