As second cut silage making begins and in some areas first cut continues, thoughts turn to next winters forage stock situation.
If forage stocks are likely to be tight it is well worth considering moist feeds such as brewers grains, or moist blends such as wessex gold or buckby best as a buffer feed now to conserve forage stocks for the coming winter when moist feed prices traditionally rise.
With continuing high concentrate prices moist blends will also make an economic alternative to traditional straights, blends and compounds.
We can still supply any of the above although supplies are running out fast so contact us for details.
We also have available a full range of grass and alternative forage seeds if looking to boost forage output this summer and autumn. For example stubble turnips could make a useful contribution to grazing as a catch crop following cereal harvesting this summer.
