How to maximise your returns with fodder conservationGet the real picture on your silage quality

Gordon Marley – Sil-All Global Product Manager in the UK, will present information to farmers on the key management principles to produce more milk by making better hay and silage.


Gordon will visit some local dairy farms and do an audit on their silage, look at crop type, cutting, wilting and storage management, feed out management and review feed test results. He will put that information together into the presentation and talk about what is working, how to improve management practices, where losses are occurring and ultimately how to produce a better quality product to produce more milk from the same starting fodder.
