Silo Should Be In Air-Tight Condition Strong enough to keep silage in and tight enough to keep air out are two fundamentals Iowa farmers should keep in mind when getting their silos in shape for use this fall, according to agricultural engineers at Iowa State College. Roughage shortages make it unwise for any farmer to take the chance of losing silage because he didn't check and make repairs before filling, they say. Thawing and freezing action, as well as rust and corrosion from silage acids, often leave the inside of the silo chipped and rough. Chipped silos deteriorate rapidly, and cause spoilage later. Clear Thoroughly Give the silo a good cleaning before making repairs, say the engineers. This means cleaning out the pit and scraping old silage off the walls. A coat of rich cement to cover irregularities, followed by an application of linseed oil, asphalt or coal tar, thinned with gasoline, is recommended for smoothing and protecting the inside of concrete, tile block and tile stave silos. The protective coating of asphalt or coal tar is necessary to prevent corrosive action by silage acids. The usual precautions taken ^ when handling gasoline should be observed. Aluminum or galvanized silos need to be checked for rust and corrosion, too. Metallic zinc paint may be used either on the outside Owing to the length of "The Best Years Of Our Lives" coming to the Iris Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 21, 22, and 23, there will be one show at 8 p. m No advance In admission. or inside. A protective coating of asphalt or coal tar is needed with this type of silo, too, regardless of previous treatment. This treatment should be given all silos every few years. Fill Air Leaks Air leaks should be carefully filled. They are usually hard to find, but melted paraffin can be used to fill small cracks in mortar joints or between silo staves. The paraffin can best be applied with a brush. Keeping the rods tight helps prevent air leaks. Wood silos' need painting or creosoting to prevent rotting, but lead paints contaminate silage with poisonous lead, warn engineers.
