Silage making in full swing

Another sunny day in South Wales today visiting dairy clients and dropping off silage sheets including siloseal clear "cling film" sheets.
 
We had excellent results with these on client farms last year with no surface waste on maize or grass silage and many more clients are using them this season along with secure covers and gravel bags to weigh down the sheets.
 
Despite recent rain showers, both grass and arable crops are still in need of substantial rainfall, although it would be good if this could come after first cut has been completed.
 
Silage making is in full swing on many farms and the dry weather has brought forward heading dates on many leys so its important to harvest these as soon as possible to avoid silage quality suffering.
 
Use of a well proven additive such as Ecosyl 100 or Alltechs 4x4 would be advisable as many pre cutting samples have shown low sugar levels and variable nitrates with the current catchy weather and cool nights. This will help ensure silage quality is maximised.
 
With the continuing threat of drought forage stocks may well be low again in the coming winter so it makes sense to ensure that any silage made is of the best quality.
 
Where silage leys are past there best it might be worth considering putting these into maize after first cut and then back into Italian ryegrass in the autumn. This should increase silage yields for this season with our maize varieties capable of yielding up to 20 tonnes per acre.
 
Maize drilling is almost complete and earlier drilled maize is up and growing well. All of our trial sites are now drilled and these should hopefully provide us with some useful information on varietal performance over a range of farm conditions.
 
We still have availability on maize seed and maxi maize fertiliser for those last minute orders.
