Listeriosis can be serious … Practice safe silage with bias truck-tire sidewalls

Dairy farmers have long been ensiling forage to preserve feed for their cows. The methodology can be complicated and labor intensive but, when done in a safe and hygienic manner, it helps ensure the livestock will be well fed all year round. Paramount to making the most of this method is ensuring that the silage, which is susceptible to contamination from the environment (e.g., soil, wind, water, insects, carcasses, etc.), remains untainted (i.e., well wrapped with polyethylene or reinforced plastic, secured by truck-tire sidewalls).…

Worried sick about pathogen transmission? Truck-tire sidewalls for bunker silos can help

According to information from Western Dairy News, the consequences of improperly fermented ensiled forage fed to dairy cows can be wide ranging and extend beyond reduced performance due to poor nutritional value of the feed. These feeds can play a role in infectious disease transmission to humans (e.g., listeriosis, botulism, and salmonellosis) and can act as primary sources of disease agents. Awareness and prevention are fundamental in minimizing the risk of exposure.…

Avoid disappointment: the best time to order bias truck-tires for use as silage covers is before you need them!

While there’s little, if any, dispute that bias ply truck-tire sidewalls are superior to radials when used as silage bunker covers, it’s a double-edged sword. Greater efficiency, safety, environmental friendliness, and reduced labor come at a price: greater demand. And greater demand often means shorter supply. The best way to avoid disappointment is to keep a keen eye on your inventory and reserve your order well in advance of running out … and call Danny Nadler.…

There’s more behind those big brown eyes than you may think …
and paying attention could reap significant fiscal rewards

Ongoing research suggests that animals, including livestock, have far more complex cognitive and social capacity than we probably credit them for. But why should we care? Because dairy cows form friendships, and when they are denied contact with their familiar friends and are isolated or placed with strangers, they react anxiously – enough to compromise their yield of milk.…
