Making and feeding high quality silage with lower fibre levels encourages higher feed intakes and better cow performance. This workshop highlights the steps for making high quality temperate pasture silage.


Workshop aims to help farmers to:

·      Reduce losses and wastage (during harvest, storage & feed-out)
