New developments in big bale silage

, : New developments in big bale silage. Developments in silage Papers presented at a seminar, Oxford, UK, 18 March 1987: 7-22

Annual production of silage in the UK has now increased to an estimated 15 to 20 million bales. Baler design has improved and some 30 models are currently available, most being capable of handling short, leafy material. All models sold in the UK are either variable- or fixed-chamber design. There are differences in complexity, flexibility and bale characteristics between the 2 designs, but there is no evidence that baler type influences silage quality.

Effect of DM content, bale weight and method of sealing on the feed value of small bale silage was studied in 2 experiments. Italian ryegrass was harvested at the vegetative stage (height 35 cm) and was sampled 60 days after ensiling. In experimen...

Moisture concentration and crop density during fermentation affect preservation of chopped silage, but these variables have not been adequately assessed for round bale silage. The effects of these factors on retention of crop dry matter (DM), sila...

Grass wilted to 30% DM was either harvested with a precision-chop harvester and ensiled with or without Silaform or baled into 600-kg bales and ensiled in black polythene bags. The pH of baled silage was 0.5 units higher, and water-sol. carbohydra...
