We are looking at a fully automated feeding system for our dairy herd. In order to automate it without using a feed kitchen we are looking at building some large upright silos and looking at our options. I have used top unloaders and harvestores and Flying Dutchman bottom unloaders but have no experience with the Valmetal or Big Jim center drop silo unloaders. Can someone give me there opinion of these type unloaders and what the issues are or why they like them? How much spoilage around the drop hole?
