Feeding with a silageblockslide is a non stop feeding process, the cows eat throughout the day. As a result the system has an average occupation of about 45% based on 2.5 cows per feeding place.
This means that you can save space in terms of floor area in new construction. In an existing barn, you can add extra free stalls along the feeding passage in the same way. The silageblockslide was specially developed for barns where the cows stand on of the feeding passage; it can be fitted in practically any barn. Thanks to his robust construction, the system has a long lifespan and requitrd little maintenance. If you use a block cutter, it will only take you 2 hours a week to get feed for about 90 cows. On the other days, you press the operating button twice a day and all your cows will be fed.
