The actual product that SHREDLAGE L.L.C. sells is a processing unit that mounts inside a conventional corn chopper. The chopper cuts the corn to length, and then runs the silage through our processor that shreds the stocks length ways, while crushing the kernel and cob, much like the conventional kernel processors being used now.
Research conducted at the University of Wisconsin shows Shredlage cows outperformed the control cows in milk production, while maintaining strong components and feed utilization.
Further research is planned to better understand Shredlage and its benefits.

Pumpeller hybrid lagoon pump
Jamesway Farm Equipment introduces the Pumpeller™ hybrid lagoon pump.
The radical new design of Lagoon Pump developed by Jamesway Farm Equipment takes much less time and less fuel to agitate the toughest lagoons.
The patented hybrid turbine chops solids entering the propeller-type core, while the integral impeller blades at the outer edge produce cannon flow and pressure. The Pumpeller agitation power exceeds that of traditional pump and prop lagoon pumps without the need for any gearbox.
Pumpeller is a completely new technology offering significantly lower operating costs and superior performance as compared to pre-existing technology.
The internal mounting of the propeller creates a powerful suction at the inlet of the turbine, resulting in a remarkable change in performance: solids are actively pulled into the cutters at the inlet instead of being repulsed by the external propeller flow. As a result, the amount of time and fuel spent to homogenize a crusted lagoon is drastically reduced.
