Silage effluent resistant floors for bunker forage silos

, : Silage effluent resistant floors for bunker forage silos. Supplement to the proceedings Engineering advances for agriculture and food Proceedings of the 1938-1988 Jubilee Conference of the Institution of Agricultural Engineers, co sponsored by the Fellowship of Engineering, Robinson College, Cambridge, 12-15 September 1988: 17-19

Eleven floor surface treatments are being compared annually until 1996. The treatments include various types of concrete; styrene butadiene latex resin (SBR); concrete with a silica-fluride hardener, polyurethane resin surface sealer, liquid plasticiser or added water to give a 95 mm slump; hot rolled asphalt; resin grouted macadam.

Eleven different floor surfaces were laid in a covered bunker silo in May 1986 to determine which have the best long-term resistance to the corrosive effects of grass silage effluent.

Bunker forage silos are usually designed on the basis that there is no hydrostatic pressure acting on the walls due to the presence of effluent; however this assumption may be invalid if the silo is undrained. In order to investigate this, effluen...

Silage effluent, normally considered a potential environmental pollutant, can be successfully fed to livestock, but must be stored from the time of drainage prior to feeding. In this study, effluent from ensiled direct-cut grass was retained in cl...
