Secure Covers were designed and developed in the UK and are made from the highest quality, finely knitted, UV stable polyethylene. Secure Covers are used over normal polythene silage sheets and are fixed in place using Secure Gravel Bags. Once fitted, Secure Covers’ unique construction disperse wind gusts ensuring that the silage sheet remains in place on the silage pit. Secure Covers effectively reduce surface waste by keeping the silage sheet in close contact with the silage surface. The finely knitted mesh helps prevent bird damage to the silage sheet and when pulled down stops birds feeding on the feed face. Geoff Hewitt milks 480 cows at Quothquan, Biggar. He also retails the milk and runs Roadhead Farm Feeds producing blends and compounds sold throughout Scotland and the North of England. So when it comes to silage time he “hasn’t got time for messing around with tyres”. Since 2008 Geoff has used Secure Covers and Secure Gravel bags to make sheeting up quick, clean and easy. The gravel bags have the extra advantage of “doing a better job of sealing the pit than tyres”. Geoff has no hesitation in recommending Secure Covers to his customers “because I use them successfully myself”.
