My Farmer and Me–Bagging Silage

Okay, so we tried a video of the bagging process. The audio part is terrible, but hopefully you get some idea of what we are doing.  Jeremy is the official un-loader and operator of the bagger. He has done this for himself many times and because he offered to help us get ours done first, we are going to help him with the chopping and drawing loads of his corn to the bagger  in return for his help. Nice to be working together on this project. Thanks, Jeremy and Allison.

Perhaps will do a better video in the future. The equipment is too loud to do a good narration. Think maybe should try explaining every thing before turning up the tractors. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Tomorrow…

  1. You really like that Gehl equipment you know parts are out of Wis. How about New Holland ? and then there is good old John Deere

  2. Very interesting. I have never seen one of the silage bags in use before. Now, when I do spot one, I will know what it is. I do wonder how the corn is transported to the far end in order to fill it up to the outer end.

    1. I’m guessing it’s something like putting your leg into pantyhose. You bunch up the stocking, put your toes into the end, then gradually let out the stocking as you go up your leg. But in this case, the bag stays stationary and the corn is blown into the bag as the tractor slowly creeps along, letting out the bag ever so slowly. So Carol, is that a good guess?

  3. I have been meaning to mention how much I like the “new look” that Farmer Ed is sporting these days! I bet it makes for a happier wife 🙂

  4. Wow, it’s kind of mesmerizing watching that chopped corn being unloaded and going into the silage bag. How long does it take to fill one of those 200 foot long bags?
