Tower silo for cereal inerting
Increasing numbers of farmers are storing and using their cereals on the farm to reduce their feeding costs.
An inert grain maize has 4% higher nitrogenous matter digestibility and higher net energy than dry grain maize.
For over a decade, Vitalac has been offering inert storage solutions for the on-site conservation of cereals for use by farmers engaged in on-farm feed production. Vitalac’s tower silos enable preservation of the nutritional qualities of moist cereals (maize, wheat), and even an improvement in their palatability. At the end of the harvest, thanks to hermetic sealing of the silo, lactic fermentation of the grains consumes the oxygen in just a few hours. It produces CO2 and acidifies the cereals, two natural phenomena which contribute to their conservation. A hardened stainless-steel cone ensures recovery, even with very moist cereals (up to 45% H20).
– Tower silos made of glass-lined steel Kohimex and Morkus-Morava
– Silos Harvestore, installed in partnership with the company Castel
The advantages of tower silo inerting:
– Accelerated harvesting work
– 100 % automation of cereal recovery
– Moderate final cost price
