“Moving over from Bales to Ag-Bag silage storage saves us a huge amount of time, fuel, and wear & tear on our TMR mixer daily. We don’t have to wait on our mixer chewing up a bale anymore.”
“The Ag-Bag works well in our system because it allows us to store our grass, and wholecrop separately and make better use of our whole crop in the TMR.”
Our large 12' diameter bagging machines can keep pace with your high capacity foraging contractors.
Almost instant air-tight conditions and post fermentation liquor re-absorbtion keep vital nutrients held in the silage.
2 - 3% DM losses compared with up to 20% or more with alternative storage methods.
Unlimited low cost storage capacity, where you want it, when you need it.
Scientific research has established that certain ideal conditions for feed storage and processing will maximize the value of crops over time. If your crop is harvested at peak nutritional value, one can preserve virtually all of that value until the crop is fed to livestock. The ideal is achievable if the crop is compacted in an oxygen-free environment, with Dry Matter in the 28 – 40% range. Once ensiled, the fermentation process begins – in which the lactic acid producing bacteria thrive. After approximately three weeks of fermentation, the pH drops to about4.0, indicating stabilized silage which will remain constant until fed. The Silage Bagging System provides an ideal Oxygen-free environment for this important process to take place.

There are many benefits of using the AgBag system both in the way that it works and the results that it produces. The airtight bags prevent the growth of yeast, moulds, bacteria and insects that can otherwise be detrimental to your feedstock. AgBag storage produces an easily digestible, higher quality feed than any other system.
Using our AgBagging service can either remove the high capital outlay needed for silage clamps or they can complement an existing clamp based system by ag-bagging excess crop or by using the bags to store whole crop or high quality 2nd or 3rd cut grass separate from clamped silage to allow for utilising these crops better in ration mixes.
NEW 2019 MOORE UNI-DRILL FOR DIRECT DRILLING / PASTURE REJUVENATION.
Grass, Clover, Rape, Kale, Stubble turnips etc can be sown into existing swards, either by seeding directly into Glyphosate sprayed off grass stubbles or by stitching in without chemical, using stock control of the existing sward or after silage has been lifted. Seeding into Cereal / Pulses stubble or conventionally tilled seedbeds is also possible. contact, and best start to growing.
MOBILE MILLING & MIXING.
Our high capacity roller mill & mix machines are used for the processing of all ‘home grown’ grains. Any liquid preservatives or Molasses derivatives can be added as well as protein pellets or prilled urea preservatives.
All ‘home grown’ grains whether dry (up to25% moisture) or for crimping and ensiling (25 – 45% moisture) can be processed efficiently through these machines.

B. Rae Contracting Ltd, was established in 1990 by Bill Rae. Having worked on farms from a young age and then for an agricultural contracting family that ceased trading he seized an opportunity to start up on his own.
From 1990 starting out with just one tractor and a hedge cutter, he has worked extremely hard to progress and develop our business into what it is today. The business became a family enterprise when Bill’s wife Hazel and son Kevin joined as the workload increased. Read More
