Poured concrete silos -tops in feed storage. Silos to store from 100 tons up to 3,000 tons or more. Standard diameters: 16', 18', 20', 24', and 30'. When choosing feed storage, it is important to consider the effect that feed quality has on the profits of your farm. The limited spoilage and dry matter loss of a poured silo has helped many farms increase their efficiency. Another thing to consider is the lower labor requirements of an upright silo. With robotic unloading and feeding systems, many farms have been able to greatly reduce their labor costs. Not sure if a new silo is right for you? Contact us.

Consider The Many Advantages of Poured Concrete Silos!!!
- Our 6" thick solid concrete walls are strong to withstand heavy loads, both horizontal and vertical.
- Our 6" walls are a monolithic (one piece) structure with smooth, uniform diameter walls that help your unloader work more efficiently.
- Our 6" thick solid concrete wall of 4,000 p.s.i. air-entrained concrete has a low-leak potential and very low maintenance requirement: no plaster needed now, or resealing in a few years.
- Our 6" concrete walls have 780 times more heat-resisting ability than steel, and 25 times more insulating power than steel.
- With horizontal and vertical steel tied together inside the concrete wall, there is tremendous strength to keep the silo round and resist storm damage. The steel inside the walls is protected from silage acids and weather.
- Our poured concrete chute is an integral part of the silo, being poured along with and tied into the wall.
- Extra large cedar doors for longer life and greater strength, with hot-dipped galvanized steps and door hardware.
- The outside ladder is hot-dipped galvanized and cast in the wall to make a permanent, rigid ladder. Safety cage encloses the ladder.
- Concrete strength, wall thickness, and steel schedules all exceed standards set by the International Silo Association, of which we are a member.
- Our thicker, stronger walls help silage remain at a relatively constant temperature resisting freezing and heat damage, resulting in less spoilage and better silage.
- When planning your forage programs, remember that your main objective is to "store the plant and remove it from storage in as good condition as possible." THE UPRIGHT SILO HAS NEVER BEEN EQUALED IN ITS ABILITY TO DO THIS.
