Quality Grass Silage


Factsheets: 


Over 85% of farms in Ireland make silage each year. Grass silage accounts for 20-25% of total annual feed per cow on well-run dairy farms, and up to 30% of total feed on beef farms depending on the production systems in place. The primary challenge for farmers is to maximise silage yield while at the same time achieving target silage quality for production system on the farm.
