Corn Cracking Silage Roller Boosts Milkk Production
The processor features the largest diameter rollers in the industry for the highest capacity and least horsepower requirements, according to the company's Doug Hilsabeck.
The 16-in. dia. rollers can process up to 2 tons of corn silage per minute and require only an 80 hp pto, Hilsabeck notes.
Farmers using the processor note an increase in milk production of up to 3 lbs. per day on one less pound of grain because cracking the corn and mixing it in with the silage makes it more palatable, he says.
The processor is available in four models, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 (U.S.).
