How to Prepare Good Quality Silage for your Dairy Farm
Prepare a year's fodder in a week
- You would not have to go to the fields everyday to harvest fodder
- Your dairy animals could get nutritious green fodder everyday
- You could reduce your fodder costs and improve animal health
- You would not face fodder shortage during summer months
- You could reduce your expenses on labour
- You could earn more profits from your dairy farm
Wouldn’t it be great if all these would come true? Well, all these wishes could come true for you too in your dairy farm, just the way it has helped numerous successful dairy farmers. When you start preparing and feeding silage to your dairy animals you will see a lot of improvements in your farm.
During summer months due to shortage of water in rainfed areas, availability of green fodder reduces. As a result, dairy farmers face shortage of green fodder and dairy animals get poor nutrition. This leads to loss in milk production immediately. The diet of animals changes suddenly when farmers have to provide fodder from other sources, . This causes damage and sometimes leads to the death of useful microflora in their rumen. Such changes can permanently reduce the milk producing ability of dairy animals.
