Silage Tubes

The unique memory of the stretch film means that the tube can be stretched and still return to its original form.  Bales are pushed into the tube and the stretch is released to form tightly around the bale, creating an oxygen free environment ideal for maintaining feed quality.

Gases created during the fermentation process can cause excessive stress on the Lastic® Tube.  When this occurs, venting is necessary.  We recommend the use of Donaghys Silage Tape when resealing the vented tube.
