Final major upgrade to the hoof trimming area showed up yesterday afternoon. Need to finish up some gating but played around with it for an hour yesterday. What a machine!

How do I seal up my maize heap?

Can I just tidy the face and leave it like a grass clamp or do I need to pull it down to a ramp, roll it and sheet it?

I've lost the Sheet twice this winter and there is quite a bit of waste on top so I'd rather not have to pull it down if I don't need to. Hopefully I won't need it until October now.

Whatever you pull down to a ramp will rot. If you can get any loose stuff away then pull plastic over and stack bales against the face. Have to keep the plastic tight against it as you can.
