- Silage can be used strategically for efficient use for off-season feeding. - It is a means of increasing feed resource availability and a form of insurance for good feeding management, especially for freshly calved dairy cows. - It can be efficiently used as a supplement for cattle grazing under coconut plantation. Thus silage making gives producers a feed inventory that can be used to plan a detailed feeding program for the herd. Advantages of silage-making Silage making is a tool for producers to achieve whole farm management goals. Silage making has some distinct advantages compared to grazing or hay-making.

Cecava The production and use of silages is especially adaptable in the beef cattle feeding operation. There are many economic advantages to the use of silage. Total digestible nutrient yield per acre is 30 to 50% greater when corn is har- vested as silage compared with harvesting as grain and by: 1.

At 20 pence per litre, that’s an extra £48 worth of milk per cow. Cost-wise, if that cow eats 10 tonnes of silage over winter, the cost of additive for those 10 tonnes would be around £   Silage provides better nutrition than hay for winter, except it lacks vitamin D, and can be produced a couple of bags a day, or from lawn clippings when you mow.

Specifically check out small bag silage, which uses bags from grocery sized to large feed bag size. Bags must not have any holes, and thin plastic must be double or tripled bagged.

Silage, because it is much wetter than hay, is much more susceptible to deterioration. When sealed from oxygen during storage, the forage undergoes fermentation. However, when it is once again exposed to air (when it is fed), it can still deteriorate quickly.

Because of this, baled. Making and Feeding Silage. Title: Making and Feeding Silage. Author: John Murdoch. Year of publication: Second Impression. pages. Pictorial dust jacket over green cloth.
