Asphalt pad cuts feed storage cost

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article
An asphalt pad proved more cost-effective than bunkers at Bankers Scenic View Farm, a 700-contract-heifer facility in Black Creek, Wis. The pad measures 170 feet by 300 feet, providing plenty of space for tractors and wagons, as well as semi-trucks to unload feed. And, multiple tractors can be used to pack the forages. To construct the floor, 4 inches of asphalt was placed on 8 inches of gravel. Constructing a concrete pad of the same size would have cost three times as much.
