ensilage en silo couloir / en fosse ou en taupinière

Our clamp measures 10m by 27m by 3m and when full will hold about 650 tonnes.
It has walls made from girders and railway sleepers and has a sealed concrete base.

En dessous de 40 % de matière sèche, on peut parler réellement d'ensilage. La technique la plus largement utilisée est celle du silo couloir. Le fourrage est tout d'abord haché en particules dont la longueur voisine le centimètre, est stocké à plat, en couches successives, sur une aire bétonnée entre deux murs, puis compacté à l'aide de tracteurs
