INTERNATIONAL SILO ASSOCIATION
110 YEARS SERVING THE TOWER SILO INDUSTRY
Sugar Maple Dairy, Luxemburg, WI
“Silos cost more money up front but they sure pay for themselves down the road,” said Rod. “We save money and labor in filling the silos because we only have four engines running instead of six used with bunkers. We definitely appreciate the convenience of having all our feed inside and not having to struggle outside during the wet, cold and snowy weather”. Using the tower silos have enabled the Zellner’s to save time, energy and money while establishing a healthier herd with better milk production.
Commitment and hard work have kept “Drycreek Farm” going and that is what will carry it into the future, and the future is where Doug and his family are looking. Strategically placing silos and buildings is just one of the ways the family is combining their past experience with present technologies to carry the farm into a fourth generation.
