  • REDUCE risk of injury to staff and wear to machines when applying silage additive by using GrasAAT, says manufacturer Hydro. (fwi.co.uk)
  • Following a request from the European Commission, the Panel on Additives and Products or Substances used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP) was asked to deliver a scientific opinion on Bacillus licheniformis DSM 32457 as a silage additive for all animal species. (europa.eu)
  • In the absence of appropriate data, the FEEDAP Panel cannot conclude on the efficacy of Bacillus licheniformis DSM 32457 as a silage additive. (europa.eu)
  • To alleviate the risk, independent consultant Dave Davies, of Silage Solutions, is recommending using a chemical additive. (fwi.co.uk)
  • crop
  • Integrated Packaging's Agricultural Division is a leader in the development, manufacture and supply of integrated crop packaging, baling and silage inoculant solutions with an extensive and proven range of products under the SilaFARM product family brand name banner. (ferret.com.au)
  • Despite the fact many dairy farmers have harvested a bumper crop of silage this year, feed quality is worse than that made in 2012, latest analyses showed. (fwi.co.uk)
  • If the crop is heavily contaminated with silt and/or silage management practices such as adequate compaction and rapid feedout are not attainable, producers may want to consider high levels of multi-acid products for the most severely affected fields. (pioneer.com)
  • Two studies (one review, one replicated trial) from the UK investigated the effects of cereal-based whole crop silage. (conservationevidence.com)
  • One replicated study found that cereal-based whole crop silage fields were used more by farmland birds and supported a higher abundance of seed-eating songbirds, swallows and martins than other crop types. (conservationevidence.com)
  • A review found one study in which cereal-based whole crop silage fields were avoided by seed-eating birds during winter, but used as much as a control during summer. (conservationevidence.com)
  • 2010) found one study on cereal-based whole crop silage (in which winter wheat planted for silage was avoided by seed-eating birds during winter, but used as much as a control spring barley crop during summer. (conservationevidence.com)
  • Defra (2007) Cereal-based whole crop silages: a potential conservation mechanism for farmland birds in pastoral landscapes . (conservationevidence.com)
  • and found that cereal-based whole crop silage fields were used significantly more by farmland birds than other crop types. (conservationevidence.com)
  • Northern lapwing Vanellus vanellus , insect-eating species, and crows (Corvidae) did not use cereal-based whole crop silage fields more than other types in summer. (conservationevidence.com)
  • losses
  • It is also noticeable that an energy loss for a lower energy content than this value (0.1 MJ/ kg DM) would cause financial losses (at the prices for the calculation) of about 3.80 - 5.20 €/ ton silage when the energy content decrease from 0.0 to - 0.1 MJ/ kg DM. (thebeefsite.com)
  • It may well be better to cut your losses now, at your usual silage-making time, and take what you can as first cut," he says. (fwi.co.uk)
  • bales
  • In an alternative method, the cut vegetation is baled, making balage (North America) or silage bales (UK). (wikipedia.org)
  • In this case, the bales are placed tightly end to end on the ground, making a long continuous "sausage" of silage, often at the side of a field. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the UK, baled silage is most often made in round bales about 4 feet by 4 feet, individually wrapped with four to six layers of "bale wrap plastic" (black, white or green 25-micrometre stretch film). (wikipedia.org)
  • Any split hay or silage bales unfit for sale are also fed. (fwi.co.uk)
  • yield
  • The type of livestock, available machinery, soil type, rainfall, availability of irrigation, and potential yield are important considerations in deciding which crops to plant and store as silage. (ufl.edu)
  • 2001). This UW corn silage "era research" shows that as corn genetics have advanced, dry matter yield of both stover and whole plant have increased. (pioneer.com)
  • Synergistic increase of methane yield was found in co-digestion in both experiments, but higher effect was realized in G : S, independently of the amount of sugar beet silage. (hindawi.com)
  • bunker silos
  • The most desirable method of packing bunker silos is the progressive wedge method, where silage is continually packed on a 30-40 percent grade. (dairyherd.com)
  • stover
  • In dry, overmature corn silage, the stover portion of the plant is less digestible and contains lower amounts of sugars and vitamin A. (dairyherd.com)
  • Biomin
  • With the aim of offering a whole solution package, BIOMIN created its BIOMIN Silage Assessment. (biomin.net)
  • stability
  • to lengthen the aerobic stability of the silage in the feed out phase (under exposure to air, heterofermentative bacteria producing acetic or propionic acid) = inhibitors. (thebeefsite.com)
  • clamp
  • It should help producers to plan silage use, instead of feeding too much cake and ending up with half a clamp of silage left at the end of winter. (fwi.co.uk)
  • Feeding
  • This is slightly less than the increase observed when feeding ½ milkline silage versus black line silage harvested with conventional choppers. (gov.mb.ca)
  • There are a number of 6500 litre herds feeding lots of silage and concentrates but with poor feed conversion efficiency. (fwi.co.uk)
  • It was possible to produce a lactic silage and keep it stable for up to 30 days, which was enough storage time before being sent to a drying process for future use in animal feeding or compost. (scielo.br)
  • kernels
  • The current data shows no clear nutritional advantage to processing silage unless it is overly mature with hard kernels. (dairyherd.com)
  • plant
  • During ensiling, bacteria ferment sugars in the plant to organic acids that lower the pH of the silage to levels that inhibit the growth of undesirable organisms. (ufl.edu)
  • Spoilage
  • The silage remains preserved as long as air is kept out because spoilage-causing yeasts in silages remain dormant in the absence of oxygen. (ufl.edu)
  • Corn silage samples should be sealed in a plastic bag and sent to a laboratory as soon as possible to reduce spoilage. (wisc.edu)
  • Silage that is too dry may result in poorly packed material, causing more mold and spoilage due to air trapped in the silage. (dairyherd.com)
  • producers
  • Some producers routinely produce silage, but others only produce silage when field drying is difficult or impossible. (ufl.edu)
  • Aimed at helping producers balance silage rations to ensure cost-effective finishing, the programme was developed using levy payers money by the Agricultural Research Institute of Northern Ireland at Hillsborough. (fwi.co.uk)
  • The second limitation of the programme is dry matter, allowing producers to enter up to 35% DM, whereas silage at Fourjays is unusually dry at 42% DM. (fwi.co.uk)
  • For producers with sucklers and finishers facing a winter with limited silage stocks, Mr Ross suggests the programme could be invaluable in prioritising where silage is fed and used to greatest effect, he adds. (fwi.co.uk)
  • variation
  • The relationship between ADF and energy content is not absolute, however, since ADF accounts for less than two-thirds of the variation in energy content in corn silage. (wisc.edu)
  • content
  • One of the biggest challenges associated with mature corn silage is assigning a net energy of lactation (NEL) value which truly reflects the energy content. (gov.mb.ca)
  • The following calculations are based on the improvement of the energy content in silage compared with non-treated silage. (thebeefsite.com)
  • The functions become positive (profitability) when the difference between the energy content in treated silage and non-treated silage exceeds around 0.1 MJ/ kg DM. (thebeefsite.com)
  • The acid detergent fiber (ADF) content of silage is the most common method used by commercial feed testing laboratories to predict energy content. (wisc.edu)
  • Processing
  • Processing silage refers to putting the chopped material between two rollers that are installed in the harvester to crush the harvested material as it passes through. (dairyherd.com)
  • Kernel processing units are becoming more popular on corn silage harvesters in Pennsylvania. (dairyherd.com)
  • weeds
  • Made popular by Jean-Martin Fortier, silage tarps are used to kill weeds by occultation, whereby the plastic maintains a warm, moist environment that stimulates weed germination, blocks out light, and subsequently kills the weeds. (johnnyseeds.com)
  • conventional
  • Harrison et al, from Washington State University observed an increase of one kilogram of milk per cow per day from black line corn silage harvested with an on-board mounted kernel processor compared to black line corn silage harvested with a conventional chopper. (gov.mb.ca)
