Agricultural Industry Europe’s leading silage clamp solution comes to UK


As UK farmers count the potential cost of new proposals from Defra on the storage of silage, a new contender has appeared on the UK silage clamp market bringing with it a track record of expertise that has earned it the top spot as Europe’s specialist in one-stop silage clamp systems.


A partnership between Bock GmbH, which says it is Europe’s leading silage clamp expert, and Milbank, apparently one of the UK’s largest precast concrete specialists, Bock UK promises to bring unrivalled benefits to UK farmers looking at the installation, service or ongoing maintenance of their silage clamp. Bock’s UK business development manager Ben Chalk says: “There has been talk of our industry rubbing its hands in glee at the thought of UK farmers being forced to replace silage clamps pre-dating 1991, but as far as Bock UK is concerned that’s pretty far from the truth. Bock has worked with farmers for more than 30 years and can offer expertise in both clamp


construction and EA requirements. We want to support the UK farming industry long-term, and would like to act in an advisory capacity to any farmer who feels they may be affected by this legislation.


The unique inclined wall design of the Bock silage clamp offers a range of design innovations that the company says will benefit farmers. “What we are saying is that if you are forced to change your silage clamp system, Bock can offer a complete solution with unrivalled benefits designed to offer optimum performance,” says Ben. “The incline clamp wall provides 35% extra capacity, up to 30% higher yield with minimal temperature fluctuations and one of the safest working environments you will find in any silage clamp system in the world.” After a flurry of enquiries, Bock UK has already successfully delivered a number of silage clamps throughout the UK, including one as part of an anaerobic digestion system at the Duchy of Cornwall’s eco-friendly model village at Poundbury, Dorchester. Ben concludes: “We are so confident that the Bock system will be as widely used here as it is in Europe that we have issued a challenge to all farmers to talk to us about our promise of more than 30% better performance. We are the first UK company to offer a complete silage clamp solution, including our unique cover system and maintenance, and can provide free, advice and consultation on the benefits of updating your silage clamp system and the dividends it can bring.” For more information visit: www.bock-uk.com
