McAree Engineering  Launch 50 Ton V-Mac Silo at Balmoral Show

McAree Engineering launched the latest addition to their award-winning V-Mac silo range with their new 3.3m diameter, 50-ton capacity animal feed silo.

According to Eamon McMeel, V-Mac Silos Technical Sales Manager “we are seeing a growing demand for larger animal feed silos, especially in the poultry and pig sector. 

We see this silo as filling this gap in the market.  

Not only is the capacity a big benefit to customers but the fact that we can erect the silo using our existing handling equipment means that it is a simple,

straightforward delivery without the extra costs of crane hire”

The silo comes complete with a heavy duty galvanised roof, a study galvanised hip ring and is supported on four 150mm x 150mm hot dipped galvanised legs all manufactured

by McAree Engineering’s expert team. The new V-mac 50- ton silo will be available in both single and split formats

In addition, the McAree team will be displaying a silo which meets the challenge of storing the new, complex feeds which some customers have experienced a poor product flow out of traditional silos. 

A large capacity, anti-separation chamber on the roof ensures the consistency of feed as it is blown into the silo while a 70 degree angled cone promotes the best flow possible.

Eamon adds “it’s a real challenge storing these type of feeds and getting the feed into feed systems without the feed separating and bridging in the silo,

these additional design options we have available will make a real difference to the storage of these feeds”

To celebrate the launch of these new enhancements, V-Mac silos had a free draw for a valuable V-Mac Feed barrow

open to everyone who comes along to their stand no. C61 and filled out an entry form.
