Silage update: wholecrop cereal silage

The dry weather over the last couple of months has provided ideal conditions for harvesting grass silage but poor conditions for grass growth, consequently first cuts have been of good quality but a disappointing yield. We are currently looking at a potential shortfall in forage stocks with reports of limited supplies of brewers grains. As a consequence dairy farmers may be considering conserving a greater tonnage of wholecrop cereals to offset the shortfall.
