Well, if you were a smartass like me, you'd have said, "the word is ensiled." When you put stuff into a silo, you ensile it. The contents of a silo is called either silage (long i) or ensilage (stress on first syllable, short i), depending on the speaker (they mean the same thing).

That should bring the conversation to a screeching halt <g>
