  • Silage Shrink Affects Feed Quality and Quantity

    When silage shrinks, producers end up with less available feed and, often, a lower quality feed. The initial dry matter (DM) losses are often of more valuable nutrients such as sugars, starches and soluble proteins. This, in turn, leads to a higher concentration of lower-value nutrients, like fiber. “Ensuring higher silage quality and conserving more of the nutrients and silage mass can ...

  • Wholecrop cereal silage could be a `no brainer`

In order to keep milk production at the same level, approx. 250 kg more concentrates are required per cow. Cutting at a later stage ...
