Subject: Educate me on silage bunkers/pads


South Central IN
I’m working with three 20x60 stave silos with pack drive unloaders. The unloaders date back into the 60’s I’m guessing, but have been pretty well kept. Since they are slow and a lot of maintenance, at some point, I’m ready to say so long to the silos and go to either a pad or bunker. I have no interest in bags. They look like a mess. I need to store about 1000 tons of corn silage. I have a hill I can dig into to make a pit, maybe 5-6’ deep. I feed 80% of my silage Oct-April. I would be filling tmr wagons with a skid steer. What works and what doesn’t?

Concrete or asphalt base?
Three sided, just 2 side walls or a flat pad?
Is any certain depth ideal?
Poured walls, construction blocks or precast?
Estimated cost?

Thanks
Don
