Update Air-Supported Dome Silo
FARM SHOW readers might be interested in an update on our air-supported dome silo which you featured 16 years ago (Vol. 6, No. 2).
The story explained how we had covered a 46 by 68-ft. trench silo with the same type of material used to cover football stadiums, baseball parks and tennis courts. We purchased the material from the Brownie Tent Co. in Clinton, N.Y.
The dome was up for more than 10 years before we switched from haylage to balage and no longer needed it. The dome material itself is still in good shape and would still do the job if we needed it. (Terrence O. Weigel, Weigel Farms, 9865 Pinnacel Rd., Sanquoit, N.Y. 13450; ph 315 737-5582)
