Availability, handling and storage

CTraffordgold® should always be stored on a clean and dry concrete base. Even if feeding fresh, it is advisable to exclude air from the load by consolidating and sheeting. For long-term storage, CTraffordgold® should be clamped, the air excluded, consolidated and covered with a secured sheet in the same manner as grass silage.

CTraffordgold® can be mixed with other feeds, such as processed bread, to produce a moist blend. Please note: it is not advisable to exceed a dry matter content of 65%.  

Storage Tips

 Store on a clean dry concrete base.

  • CTraffordgold® will be warm or hot on arrival. It is best left for 24 hours before sheeting to let heat escape.
  • Compress the surface by means of a tractor mounted bucket to exclude as much air as possible.
  • Dressing the surface with salt prior to sheeting will enhance the products preservation. It is recommeded to use 3kg of salt per cubic meter.
  • Cover with high quality plastic sheet and evenly weight with Secure Covers and gravel bags or straw bales.
  • Ensure the product is completely covered with the sheet, even at the edges, to create an air tight seal.
  • When feeding starts, its best to expose 3 or 4 days worth of feed at a time. Placing a line of weights on the sheet, as far back as you intend to expose the feed, reduces the risk of air entering the clamp and aids keeping quality.
  • Ensure the open face of the silo is clean and tidy.
  • Keep the area exposed to the atmosphere minimal.

It is recommended to cover the feed face during heavy rain.

Legal disclaimer

Suggested feeding rates are produced as a guide only and many other factors may have an overriding effect on animal response; no performance guarantee can be given. Rations should be carefully balanced for energy and protein, contain sufficient forage to maintain rumen function and be fortified with an appropriate vitamin and mineral supplement. Animals must have constant access to clean water.

No matter what system you have or what type of forage you may be substituting, our feeding guide can provide the answers.
