Making and feeding high-quality, digestible silage encourages higher feed intakes and better cow performance.
High-quality forage has a high nutritional value in terms of energy and protein and is also well preserved, making it highly palatable which supports high levels of forage intake.
There are then many management decisions to make, including when to cut, how to store and how to feed, and attention to detail at all stages of silage making is key to achieving high-quality silage.
