The Ag-Bag system of storing fermentable animal feed provides the ideal environment to retain maximum feed quality and quantity. Because it is air tight, it significantly reduces costly waste common to bunkers and pile storage that typically ranges from 15% to 30% loss or higher. Feed stored in Ag-Bag bags retains the kind of nutritious and palatable silage your livestock prefer. This system is proven to preserve the highest quality, highly digestible feed that increases milk or meat production and benefits herd health. Feed stored in bunkers and piles will contain spoiled and moldy portions that can be toxic to livestock.
Ag-Bag African Adoption
Karan Beef in South Africa has introduced corn silage in their livestock feed ration. They have chosen to use the Ag-Bag system for ensiling and storing the forage as part of their productive and efficient feeding program. Karan Beef has experienced nearly complete retention of the amount and nutritional levels of their silage during storage with the Ag-Bag system.
Ag-Bag has forage storage solutions for operations with high capacity harvesting methods. The company’s largest machine (self-propelled AB1214) can pack away 20 tons of forage crop in two minutes into either 12 or 14 foot diameter bags. Other machine options include pull type baggers that pack 8, 9 and 10 foot diameter bags.
The rotor and tunnel design are the keys to a well-packed bag. Ag-Bag (since 1978) was the first company in the United States to build bagging machines and has continued leading the competition with innovation and technology for feed storage. Ag-Bag developed the technology to determine the optimum rotor design, how wide it should be for a given tunnel size, how many teeth the rotor needed and optimum teeth and rotor placement. All these factors contribute to efficient crop flow and desired packing results. The low rotor position in Ag-Bag baggers provides the most consistent packing through the entire bag.
Ag-Bag provides all the finest elements for a complete harvesting system including high quality plastic bags and inoculant. Bags are available in lengths from 100 to 500 feet.
