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.
