Anchor Bags Help Prevent Silage Spoilage
to go together. But it doesn't have to be that way, says Weaver Martin, who reduces spoilage along the edges of silo pits with his Silage Saver Anchor Bags.
  These 3-ft. long, 6-in. dia. poly bags come filled with pea stones. Handles on each end make lifting the 40-lb. bags easy.
  Although you can tear them, it's difficult, Martin of Listowell, Ontario says. The bags are UV-resistant and can withstand temperatures as low as 40 degrees C. They should last up to 10 years or longer, he says.
  Aside from sealing silage pits, the bags can be used as pickup truck box weights for winter driving, holding down plastic or row covers in gardens, and holding down swimming pool covers.
  Martin puts 50 filled bags on a pallet and delivers them to customers. He charges $4.75 (Can.) per bag plus shipping costs.
