Welsh Farmers investing in silage storage through the Sustainable Production Grant Scheme should consider ARK sloping walled silage clamps - helping them make better silage, safer with a ready made Environment Agency compliant system.
This is the message from Will Wilson, Business Development Director, ARK Agriculture. ARK Agriculture specialise in the construction of the patented, innovative, sloping wall silage clamp.
‘ARK is unique in the UK as we are the only company that works specifically with silage clamps, so we try really hard to give our customers the best possible advice to improve silage quality and make silage storage safer and compliant,’ says Mr Wilson.
‘When we design silage clamps we start with the goal of making the best silage possible and we consider dozens of variables, many of which have been overlooked in the past, to get the design right. Part of this aim for silage quality is the use of the sloping walled system’.
An example of this thinking, says Mr Wilson, is ARK’s preference for clamps without back walls, ‘back walls in silage clamps should only be considered if you have no other option-like working into a hill’, he adds, ‘silage clamps with back walls are so much harder to fill and compact properly’.
A sloping wall with and earth bank behind it is also safer, as operators can work without risking falls from height; the earth bank also ensures the panels don’t move under the weight of modern machinery.
The ARK sloping walled silage clamp system is designed to meet the SSAFO regulations, a key part of the sustainability production grant requirements.
The modular, kit based, ARK system can either be installed by local groundworkers or with the smaller panels they can be installed by farmers themselves. Installing the system takes roughly half the time of conventional silage clamps.
The ARK silage clamp panel system is comparable in price to conventional silage clamps made in Essex can be delivered anywhere in the UK.
