Silage Covers

Guaranteed performance for your investment

New technology polymer combined with state of the art extrusion techniques have significantly increased the field performance of Donaghys Crop Packaging silage covers over traditional cover options.  The 7 layer SmartStructure™technology ensures that heavy silage covers are less likely to tear or puncture during the handling and covering operation making them tougher and stronger than traditional covers.

Donaghys Crop Packaging premium covers are manufactured by AT Plastics, world leaders in the manufacture of silage film and at the leading edge of silage film developments. We also supply covers from European manufacturers. All our silage covers are UV stabilised for New Zealand conditions and are guaranteed for a minimum of 12 months in the field.

Retail Silage Covers

Manufactured using SmartStructure™multi layer extrusion technology, our Heavy Black/White covers are are less likely to tear or puncture during the handling and covering operation, making them tougher and stronger than traditional covers.

These premium black/white silage covers provide outstanding reflective properties – white on the outside to reflect the light and reduce heat transfer and black underneath to absorb heat and light.

  • Enhanced puncture resistance and tear strength for superior field performance and protection of moisture.
  • 100% opacity and UV stabilised with 12 month UV warranty
  • Free fall folded one piece cover for ease of application

Utility Covers

Utility silage covers are designed for grass silage applications. Manufactured using the 7 layer SmartStructure™technology to provide long term protection, these covers are less likely to tear or puncture during the handling or covering operation making them tougher and stronger than other traditional grass covers.

  • Enhanced puncture resistance and tear strength for superior field performance and protection of moisture
  • High opacity to light. Green outer layer reflects solar radiation reducing heat in the silo and preventing unwanted fermentation
  • 12 month UV warranty
  • Free fall folded one piece cover for ease of application

Bulk Rolls

Premium Bulk rolls utilise the SmartStructure™multi layer extrusion technology for long term protection against the elements. These stronger, tougher covers are less likely to tear or puncture during the handling and covering operation.

Premium black/white silage covers provide outstanding reflective properties – white on the outside to reflect the light and reduce heat transfer and black underneath to absorb heat and light.

  • Bulk contractor packaging. Special narrow roll width for ease of transport
  • Free fall folded on piece cover for ease of application and does not require sealing or taping.
  • Enhanced puncture resistance and tear strength for superior performance and protection of moisture
  • 100% opacity and UV stabilised with 12 month UV warranty

Euro Silage covers have high strength and impact resistance.  This high quality product is produced by one of Europe’s leading manufacturers on state of the art machines.  Designed for contractors that require a longer core length for their trailers.

  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Convenient and Easy Usage
  • Best possible forage
  • Economical
  • Reliable Quality

Silo2Block

The Silo2Block is designed usingt the latest 7- layer film technology and offers extraordinary tear, impact and tensile strength.  The cover offers 10 times lower oxygen permeability is easy to handle and uv resistant for a least 15 months.  Silo2Block reduces spoilage and gives the farmer a high quality of feed.

  • Soft and Flexible
  • Reduced air pockets
  • Easy to install z- Folding

O2 Barrier Film

O2 Barrier 2in1 is the first cover combination with protective film and sealing film that has a 6 to 10 times increased oxygen barrier.  The highlight is the 2in1 film combination can be put on the silage in one application.  The product is designed to be flexible with easy handling which makes this product a real time saver for the end user.

The cling seal is designed to separate soon after application.  This creates an Oxygen Barrier which removes all air from the silage allowing a better moisture level during the fermentation stage to give you top quality forage.

  • Constant Silage Preservation
  • Lighter weight for easier handling
  • UV resistance
  • Independent film separation

Combi Vapour Layer

Combi Vapour Layer is a silage cover and underlayer all rolled in to one cover. The convenience of one cover with the benefits of using a 40 micron cling film underlay and a 127 micron UV stabilised outer. The primary oxygen barrier film sheet sucks down onto the silage creating a vacuum, resulting in an air tight clamp with little to no top or shoulder waste. Usual waste can be eliminated by as much as 100% saving hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars in lost silage with the benefit of enhanced silage quality.

  • Users can save up to $5.50 per ton of silage*
  • Very low oxygen transmission rate, eliminating surface spoilage, saving time and money
  • Dry matter loss in the top metre of silage is reduced by 50%*
  • Aerobic stability is increased by up to 2.5 days so silage on face and in front of cows stays fresh and nutrient rich longer
  • Free fall configuration enabling underlayer and top cover to be easily deployed on pile in one action
