Cutting

Home produced grass forage is the cornerstone of most livestock farms whether that be as silage, hay or haylage. Well made silage offers the potential for a balanced feed with good energy and protein levels and increased animal intakes. There are many factors that go into producing a valuable silage crop including cutting date, wilting time and preservation method but it all starts with getting the right grass mixture. You will never be able to make good silage off a poor field and a good grass ley offers the potential to produce excellent forage. These mixtures have been designed to focus on producing quality cuts whether for silage, haylage or hay. Varieties have been selected for their quality under cutting alongside their relevant heading dates to ensure quality and yield. As always the right mixture is the one that suits your system and consideration has to be given to aspects such as stock class, cutting dates, length of ley and soil type.
