Silage Blowing Tips

Operation

  • Feed silage into into the silage blower in an even, steady stream, especially when first starting to unload the wagon.
  • Check silage cut length. Long cut material will not flow or blow as readily as shorter cut material. Long cut material also will not distribute well through non-motorized distributors.
  • When blowing haycrop silage, add water at the blower (use a garden hose at full force). This will help reduce the gumming problem associated with blowing this material and will not significantly rasie the moisture content of the silage
  • When filling silo, air must readily escape from the structure to prevent back-pressure in the fill pipe and gooseneck. In conventional silos, open the roof door. In oxygen-limiting silos, open the air escape hatches.

Blower

  • Maintain proper blower RPM. The tractor needs to have enough horsepower so the RPMs do not decrease during filling, even when "silage clumps" enter the blower. An often used "rule-of-thumb" for most forages is 1-3/4 to 2 HP per foot of silo height.
  • Check for any slippage in the PTO clutch to ensure the full RPMs are maintained to the blower.
  • Check to ensure the paddle-to-housing clearance is properly adjusted. Do not assume it is correct just because it is a new blower. Check the recommendations in the blower Operator's Manual - or use the "rule-of-thumb" - "Pick up a nickel, leave a dime."
  • Check for any bent blower paddles
  • Check setting for the air inlet (see Operator's Manual)

Fill Pipe

  • To ensure maximum blower efficiency, make sure the fill pipe is instaled in a vertical or near vertical position. The blower impeller, fill pipe, and distributor gooseneck should be in-line vertically.
  • All sections of the fill pipe should be equal in diameter to that of the blower discharge port.
  • Check for rough areas inside the telescoping section and the fill pipe, especially at the joints.
  • DO NOT USE VINYL PIPE FOR LOW MOISTURE (under 50%) FEED. A build-uo of static electricity may cause blowing difficulties and serious PERSONAL INJURY!
  • Gooseneck and/or distributor. Make sure the capacity of the distributor is matched with the blower.
  • Check flow of silage; it should be discharging into the silo with force. Dribbling the silage in will allow it to hang up on the gooseneck, support braces, or the ditributor.
  • Check underside of the gooseneck for roughness due to gum build-up. If rough, blow some shelled corn through the system to smooth the surface.
  • Check distance betweent he gooseneck and the distributor. Sufficient distance (18"+) should be maintained so the silage is distributed without backing up into the gooseneck.
