Rotary silage spreader SILO TWIST
The silage spreader as the basis for best forage quality
High-quality basic feed keeps animals healthy. The quality of the basic feed is not only defined by correct mowing, tedding, swathing and loading. The loading of the feed into the bunker silo and homogeneous distribution and compaction thereof are also an important element for optimal feed utilisation. The SILO TWIST model series distributes the feed ideally across the width and is perfectly suited for use in bunker silos with homogeneous feed distribution. Thanks to the folding swath curtain (option), this rotary silage spreader guarantees homogeneous silage distribution with an exact edge structure, even in free-standing silo heaps without walls.

Best feed quality by means of even distribution in the trench silo
High intake of basic feed is the decisive factor for maximum milk yield with the best possible animal welfare. Increased concentrated feed cannot compensate this. Only nutritious and aerobically stable silage is gladly eaten because of its taste.
In order to be able to produce high-quality silage, many points in the value chain from feed collection to loading into the silo are important. This concerns the choice of the right time for harvesting, the degree of wilting of the feed, the loading and unloading technology and also the optimal distribution, compaction and covering of the feed. When the feed is unloaded and loaded into the bunker silo, it is important for it to be evenly distributed up to the edges of the silo in order to consistently avoid air inclusions and subsequent fermentation pockets. This is the only way to ensure that stable lactic acid fermentation takes place. The individual layers should not be higher than 30 cm – so the feed can also be properly compacted afterwards.
