B. McLAUGHUN Forage Engineer LctMiridge Research Station The pros and cons of cover- ing the horizontal silo with a plastic sheet have been a sub- ject of controversy for many years. Numerous opinions have been expressed on this subject but conclusive evidence has been lacking. Basically, the purpose of (he plastic cover is lo prevent ox- ygen Irom entering the silage mass. When silage is Ihiis pro- tected from air, it is in a stable state and will keep for many years, but if oxygen does enter the silage, ttie growth of bac- Icria and molds that flourish in the presence of air is stimulat- ed. As a result, the silage de- composes or spoils and its pnl- atability and feeding value are substantially reduced. Many people estimate the losses of silngc in a horizontal silo on Ehe basis of the thick- ness of the visible Inyer of spoilage on the surface. How- ever, this estimate often is mis- leading because the actual spoilage usually includes a much thicker layer of silage. Invisible loses caused by fer- mentation and slow oxidation also may extend heyond tho layer of visibly spoiled mater- ial. A plastic cover should reduce silage losses considerably, nut only it if is well placed. A cov- er lhat billows in the wind is of little value, since air undoubt- edly will get' into the sil- age under the cover. The plas- tic must Iw well weighted down with material such as bales or old rubber tires placed tightly together so that the silo will remain airtight. An experiment is now under- way at the Lethbridgc Research Station to measure and com- pare losses from covered and uncovered horizontal B i 1 o s.
