How to harvest quality silage
With the silage season upon us, on the latest episode of the Environment Edge, Cathal Somers and Deirdre Glynn chat to Teagasc dairy advisor in Kilkenny Pat Moylan about the cold dry spring and tips on how to harvest quality silage.
With up to 30 litres of effluent lost per day from a tonne of fresh cut grass, Pat outlines the steps we need to take on the farm to ensure effluent is contained.
Listen in to hear how the Teagasc Waterford/Kilkenny advisory region are working with farmers on a project to improve slurry use efficiency and reduce the use of chemical nitrogen on the farm.
