Dual-purpose silos

Our dual-purpose silo gives the cattle farmer maximum usage possibilities. The silos can be used for both dry and liquid products and are particularly convenient for farms that have a varying availability of by-products originating from the foodstuff industry.

To fill the feed mix truck easily the silo is mounted on a raised galvanised steel underframe. The dry feed is then easy to pour and the liquid product can be drawn off trouble-free via the hoistable free outflow. The dual-purpose silo therefore reduces the investment risk and in addition gives extra flexibility.
