Effect of variable pressure on the consolidation of chopped and unchopped fodder in small silos (cement tower silos and silos with covers)



Effect of variable pressure on the consolidation of chopped and unchopped fodder in small silos (cement tower silos and silos with covers)



Ztschr. Tiererndhrung Futtermittelk 4: 207-213



It was found possible by the use of a rack press to get considerably more unchopped or bulky material into small cement tower silos, the difference amounting to as much as 30 per cent. in some cases.
