WH Richardson & Sons, a reputable farm based in Humberside, sought to enhance their feed storage capabilities with a project involving the installation of two silos for storing pig feed. This case study outlines the custom solution provided by EB Equipment to meet WH Richardson’s specific requirements and optimise its feed storage operations.

Project Overview:

  • Two silos were commissioned to meet the farm’s feed storage needs effectively.
  • The spacious internal diameter of each silo ensures ample storage capacity while facilitating efficient loading and unloading operations.
  • Incorporating a centre discharge design enables uniform discharge of feed from the silo, ensuring consistent feed distribution to the pigs.
  • With a capacity of 25 tonnes each, the silos provide sufficient storage for the farm’s pig feed requirements, ensuring continuous supply without the need for frequent refilling.
  • A bespoke leg structure was designed to offer a higher discharge height, enabling convenient access for loading feed into trucks or other transport vehicles.
