Slurry storage

The capacity for slurry storage may not always keep pace with the growth in livestock size. Consequently, investing in your own slurry storage solutions often proves to be more cost-effective over time compared to external disposal, processing, or leasing alternatives. At Genap, we offer a wide range of storage solutions, including slurry silos and reservoirs, complemented by suitable covering systems, all designed to the highest standards for handling slurry, water, sludge, or any other fluid. From recommending the optimal slurry storage solution to installing your chosen silo or reservoir, we manage every aspect of the process.

Slurry storage during spreading ban

Limited slurry storage can result in numerous issues. In an increasing number of countries, farmers encounter spreading bans, prompting them to hastily empty their storage before the ban takes effect. However, this rushed approach can lead to less effective fertilization. Furthermore, when spreading is permitted again, soil conditions may be unpredictable, especially during wet or frosty weather, necessitating longer storage of slurry. When storage reaches full capacity, options become limited: either spreading under unfavorable conditions or resorting to costly disposal methods.

Spacious slurry storage; a sound investment

Ample slurry storage is a wise investment that quickly pays for itself. Renting slurry storage is expensive, especially if wet periods extend longer than anticipated. Plus, slurry needs to be transported twice: once for storage and again for spreading. A spacious slurry storage provides a lasting solution to this issue. Moreover, it eliminates reliance on contractors, allowing the farmer to spread slurry at the most opportune time.
