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.
