Brian Lapinga, owner of B&D Dairy, completed a 43,000 square foot addition to his existing bunker silo. The dairy milks 4,000 cows in a state-of-the-art 80-head carousel milking parlor. Brian recognized the benefits of using FORTA-FERRO® in his application, including efficiency of placement, acid resistance, no corrosion, and three-dimensional reinforcement located throughout every cubic inch of concrete. The largest joint free sections measured 125’ x 125’ with a slab thickness of 6”, the largest slab allowed by the specifier in a single pour. Given the success using the fibers, Brian has insisted on FORTA-FERRO® whenever possible throughout his operation.
