Amid a variety of feed storage options, plastic silage bags are gaining in popularity. They offer a lower cost, lower investment method of storage. Most importantly, silage bags provide a great environment for feed fermentation.
To get feed into those silage bags, it takes the work of a bagging machine or ag-bagger. Ever wonder how an ag-bagger is made? We did, so we visited Ag-Bag, a Miller-St. Nazianz Company, in St. Nazianz, Wis., to take a closer look.
Photographs from our visit and a step-by-step explanation of the process are featured on our Young Dairymen page of the May 25, 2014, issue of Hoard's Dairyman. You can also view that article here.
We also compiled some extra photographs and video clips in the following slide show. Please enjoy this short virtual tour to see how an ag-bagger is made!
