Should you do Silage Analysis?

Management and feeding of grass silage to maximise animal performance is particularly important this winter when margins are low. It is also essential for farmers who have invested heavily into making silage, to know what its true feeding value really is. Winter diets can then be formulated to maximise silage feeding value, particularly for autumn and winter calving dairy cows were concentrate supplementation adds substantially to production costs.


Silage analysis is therefore an important guide to attaining a high level of animal performance this winter, while still being prudent in the use of concentrates.  This will avoid unnecessary expense, while making it possible to target concentrate feeding where silage quality is poorest and is justified by animal requirements.
