When we visited the farm of the Pieper-Gördes family in Meschede, we got a great insight into their family farm in the beautiful Sauerland (North Rhine-Westphalia). Chris Pieper-Gördes is visibly proud of his 80-strong herd of Rotbunten dairy cows: the “ladies” produce an annual average of about 9,500 kg of milk per year. In addition to the dairy cows, the farm also raises its own female offspring. With the SILO GRIP silage grab bucket from MAMMUT, Chris loads the trailed feed mixer wagon with a wide variety of components, from grass silage and maize silage to brewer’s grains or concentrated feed. Sometimes the silage grab bucket is even used for bedding, the enthusiastic farmer tells us.
