Combi Vapour Layer

Donaghys' Combi Vapour Layer is a silage cover and underlayer all rolled in to one cover. The convenience of one cover with the benefits of using a 40 micron cling film underlay and a 127 micron UV stabilised outer. The primary oxygen barrier film sheet sucks down onto the silage creating a vacuum, resulting in an air tight clamp with little to no top or shoulder waste. Usual waste can be eliminated by as much as 100% saving hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars in lost silage with the benefit of enhanced silage quality.

  • Users can save up to $5.50 per ton of silage*
  • Very low oxygen transmission rate, eliminating surface spoilage, saving time and money
  • Dry matter loss in the top metre of silage is reduced by 50%*
  • Aerobic stability is increased by up to 2.5 days so silage on face and in front of cows stays fresh and nutrient rich longer
  • Free fall configuration enabling underlayer and top cover to be easily deployed on pile in one action

* When compared to using a conventional black/white cover

Silage Underlayer

Originally designed as a secondary skin and protective layer in case of breakdown of the main silage cover, Donaghys' Underlayer is now intended to closely follow and adhere to the silage pit surface, preventing pockets of air forming and reducing spoilage. The vacuum film decreases the gas permeability and nitrogen oxide remains longer in the silo thus decreasing bacteria that can cause silage mould. The air seal also facilitates a faster more efficient fermentation process to deliver enhanced silage quality.

  • Acts as additional protection in case of damage to main sheet
  • Tough enough to withstand being walked on when it is being laid
  • Better recycling of the main sheet since it has no contact with fodder
  • Up to 25% less permeability of oxygen
  • Less permeability to all silage gases
  • Ideal for moist crops with greater potential for spoilage

Donaghys Silage Bags

Silage Bags are an economical alternative to preserve silage, as feed losses are minimal compared to silage pit and wrapper options.  The silage is contained in an anaerobic environment that helps to eliminate spoilage whilst maintaining essential proteins and nutrients. 

  • Tough and dependable with high tear and puncture resistance properties
  • UV stabilised
  • Available in 9ft x 200ft and 9ft x 300ft
  • Each bag is packed and folded individually into a carton

Tri White Lastic Tube

The unique memory of the stretch film means that the tube can be stretched and still return to its original form.  Bales are pushed into the tube and the stretch is released to form tightly around the bale, creating an oxygen free environment ideal for maintaining feed quality. 

Gases created during the fermentation process can cause excessive stress on the Lastic® Tube.  When this occurs, venting is necessary.  We recommend the use of Donaghys Silage Tape when resealing the vented tube.

  • Tough and dependable
  • UV stabilised
  • Each tube is packed and folded individually into a carton
