Silage clamp created from retaining walls with extra-long heel for cover system
Dairy farmer Miedema in Blessum (Friesland) wanted to optimise his storage, combined with a cover system. Bosch Beton offered a customised solution with a silage clamp of new LA retaining walls that have an extra-long heel. This enables the cover system to travel over the longer heel without the need to introduce additional paving.
The dairy farmer from Friesland wanted to optimise his storage, as well as equip this with a cover system. We offered our customer a customised solution with a silage clamp that is aligned to the dairy farm’s requirements. We used our new LA300H retaining walls for this. The extra-long heel ensures that these are particularly suitable for silage clamps with this cover system.
We are increasingly seeing a combination of silage clamp walls with automatic cover systems. The cover system ensures better feed preservation, constant supply and retention of roughage in the silo. When covering and when removing silage, the system moves across the stable heel along the silage clamp walls, making it unnecessary to introduce additional paving.
Retaining wall with extra-long heel
The new silage clamp is L 50 m x W 12 m. This Blessum dairy farmer is enjoying an industry-first with this, as his silo is the first to be fitted with our new LA300H retaining walls. We also placed Bosch Beton dual gutters to complete the system.

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.
Five new silage clamps for dairy farm in Schoorl
Bosch Beton built five silage clamps for the Mulder. We were involved in the complete new build for a long time.
Silage clamp at unique angle
In Sprang Capelle, a farmer wanted to combine the space behind a stable with an entrance next to the stable. Our retaining walls created a unique silage clamp with an angle of 118 degrees
