There are several options for ensiling and storing forage crops.
Producing silage allows farmers and ranchers to preserve feed and forage for their livestock to supplement or replace grazing
The overall quality of finished silage can be rapidly assessed by noting color and odor.
To take best advantage of the efficiencies offered by silage, the production of forage and silage should be integrated into a whole-farm plan
In today’s usage, silage is a type of animal feed formed when grass or other green crops of sufficiently high moisture content
Once you’ve invested in a high-quality, silage cover from BTL Liners, you don’t want to replace it every year or even every few years.

Knowing the size of silage cover you need is far from the only decision to make.

Silage is a high moisture forage feed, while traditionally stored hay is a low moisture forage.
