Contribution to the study of making grass silage in round bales in the province of Luxembourg

Contribution to the study of making grass silage in round bales in the province of Luxembourg

Revue de l' Agriculture 41(4): 923-934

Ensiling in round bales is discussed. Data are given on the comparative chemical composition of farm samples of silage made in round bales, tower silos and horizontal silos. Round bale silage contained 52% DM compared with 53.8% for tower silos and 35.7% for horizontal silos. Use of the technique required a high degree of skill but did not require fixed installations and had advantages for farms changing from hay to silage and as a rescue technique in unfavourable weather.
