I would probably use clamp top plastic barrels if I could find them. Good seals and should last forever in that application. Make it in the back of the truck at the customer site and then just unload the barrels at home when full.
Warning signs include silage that’s red, orange, black, white or slimy from fungal mould or bacterial growth, and silage that smells rancid or musty. If it doesn’t smell good don’t feed it.

It smelled fine. Not fermented like it should, and not "evil" like bad silage is supposed to smell.
It was brown and should be green. There seemed to be a little white mold in the middle which I have seen in balage.
The cows didn't eat it but they refused regular balage on day 1 too.
Sigh.... I wish I had made some regular dried tree hay to see how that would've held up.
