Provita are hosting two farm demos on silage making. The demos focus on good management and silage making tips, the use of silage inoculants and pros and cons of using farmer owned silage making machinery. Despite a very difficult year both demo farms have made excellent silage.
Wednesday 10th January 2018 at 12pm
Dean and Jim Wright, 12 Brackagh Rd, Portadown
Thursday 11th January 2018 at 12pm
Declan Rafferty and Aiden Quinn, 112 Limehill Road, Pomeroy
The demo on at Wrights farm will focus on making better quality silage for dairy cattle. Mini-silo and clamp silage tests performed on Dean’s 2017 silage will be discussed and demonstrated with the differences between treated and untreated silage highlighted. The pros and cons and the economics of using his own silage making plant will also be discussed.
The demo at Rafferty and Quinns farm will focus on making better quality silage for beef cattle. There is a split clamp silo where treated and untreated silage can be compared. The partnership farm combines with another farm to form an informal machinery sharing ring.
