There are some 550 dairy cows on Stefan Maes’s dairy farm in Eksel, Belgium. It’s a challenge working with dairy cows. Despite the negative sides, Stefan always remains positive about his animals. The farmer plans ten years ahead and tries to move with the times, as can be seen from the solar panels on the roof, which generate energy.
But he was also considering investing in a silage clamp. His previous silo was made from stacking blocks, but these fall over and are not strong enough, which is why he was seeking a sustainable and robust solution that is maintenance free. The Belgian farmer ended up at Bosch Beton because of the sustainability and robustness of our silage clamps.
Silage clamp for the future
With this silage clamp, farmer Maes is making an investment for at least twenty-five to thirty years, or even longer. We built a 25-metre-wide and 100-metre-long silo using L400HAK retaining walls. In total there were 90 retaining walls. The wall delivery and placement went very quickly and on the exact agreed day and hour.

PROJECT IN THE PICTURE
Silage clamp for constant supply
At the goat farm of the Krekels family in Baexem, Limburg (the Netherlands), several silage clamps were placed by Bosch Beton.
New silage clamp with 4 chambers in Gütersloh, Germany
The old silage clamp at our customer in Gütersloh made way for a completely new silo with four chambers. Bosch Beton placed the new silos in Germany in just one day.
Silage clamps for grass and maize in Brabant
In Nispen in Brabant we have installed two silage clamps with our retaining walls. The silage clamps are 28 metres long, in which the dairy farmer stores grass and maize
