During the last meeting, the group requested a meeting to look at how best to maximise their milk production from forage during the winter months. Since producing good quality forage can reduce feed costs throughout the year we will begin by comparing silage analyses for the 2019 year. We will also discuss the process of making top quality silage and focus in particular on the reliance of top quality, high quantity 1st cut vs multi-cut systems. fertiliser policies and ensiling techniques.
Looking at the range of ration formulations from the group will lead to discussions surrounding effective ration formulation and costs.
