Farm Table says:
This webpage was produced by DairyNZ and contains information on high-quality grass silage as a quality feed supplement for dairy producers as a fibre source when feeding high sugar or starch feeds.
Key sections include:
- Losses when making pasture silage (during harvest, when in the stack/pit/bale and when feeding out);
- Analysis and sampling, including estimating quality from sight and smell.
It also provides a series of links to fact sheets related to grass silage with more in-depth information than the webpage, including:
- Grass silage – the preservation process;
- Losses when making pasture silage;
- Analysis of pasture silage;
- What is high quality pasture silage;
- Assessing quantities of silage; and
- How much silage is in my stack.
By reading both this webpage and the fact sheets, you’ll be able to gain an oversight into grass/pasture silage and enhance your knowledge into the processes and assessment of silage.
