V-MAC 28 Tonne Split Diet Feeder - Gantry Silo

V-Mac standard diet feeder silo on its own gantry is ideal where adequate space is available and you have a requirement for fast filling.  Because there are no electrical or moving parts this silo is relatively maintenance free and gravity fills the feeder wagon from a central cone.  You just have to drive or reverse your wagon underneath the gantry and open up the butterfly valve to fast fill your wagon.  There is a 3.2m height under the cone and 3.3m width to drive or reverse through.

Question: What size silo do I need? Answer:

Typically you will order feed on a weekly, fortnightly or Monthly basis.  Check with your feed mill to see what the pricing options are – you might get a better deal for ordering 6 ton instead of 4 ton.  Remember you usually will have a bit left in the silo  - so if you are ordering 6 ton of feed you probably need an 8 ton capacity silo.

Rations/Blends are bulkier than ordinary pellets – all our silos are sized in cubic feet.  Check the charts and the density of your feed to make sure you buy a big enough silo

Question: What style of silo suits me best? Answer:

Enclosed silos are ideal where you are using bags or barrows – the feed is not caught in the wind and you are protected from the weather.

Legged silos are ideal for connecting to auger systems – they can also be used to fill bags and barrows

Offset silos are ideal if you are filling loader buckets – with the cone to the side any sized bucket can be used.

Question: Why do I need a silo? Answer:

There are 3 main reasons for getting a silo

  1. To save Money.  Buying in bulk can save up to £30/€40 per ton over bagged feed, also the bigger the quantity you buy the greater the saving.  Eg a 12 ton load of feed may cost less than 4 ton on an average cost per ton basis.  In addition with a silo there is no waste (there is no spoilage, no feed being ate by vermin and no damaged feed caused by multiple handling) Research indicates that up to 10% of feed can be wasted if it is stored in an open environment.
  2. Bio security – there is a growing awareness of the need to protect animal feed from contaminants (waste from birds and vermin and other environmental factors) to ensure that quality the feed going into the food chain is 100%. Storing animal feed in purpose built silos provides this bio security
  3. Health & Safety – Silos are easy to fill and empty providing a good working environment for the animal feed suppliers staff who don’t have to climb into lofts etc and also for the farmer who don’t have to manually fill tons of feed out of bags etc – which is back breaking work.
