Effective Grass Silage Fermentation

Effective Grass Silage Fermentation Farming Note

Effective grass silage fermentation makes for healthy rumens and high performance. Poor silage results in reduced intakes and could even be disastrous for cattle health. Optimising the fermentation process through good management practices and potentially the addition of an additive will reduce nutrient loss and help to improve aerobic stability once the clamp is open.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The principles behind silage fermentation
  • How to maximise natural silage fermentation
  • Choosing a silage additive: the pros and cons of three additive types

Issued May 2013.
