FODDER CONSERVATION

Updated: Jun 1


Silage.. Is it cheap feed?


If done well... yes!


However, If the quality is poor, it's expensive due to losses in wastage and animal performance. The weather often gets in the way, but there are things we can do to manage this and conserve good quality home grown forage.


We need to test it, learn from it to make a plan for next year and, do everything possible to cut at the right time and keep that oxygen out.


Feed testing the 2017 cut 6-8 weeks after ensiling is vital for maintaining high production through summer by understanding how to create a complimentary ration for maximum feed utilisation.

Call one of our consultants to request a feed test kit to drop past the next time we are in your area.
