Co Armagh dairy farmer Dean Wright is confirming a tremendous start to the 2015 silage season.
“We took a first cut during Balmoral Show week with the second following at the beginning of July,” he said.
“And we are delighted with the results achieved to date. The analysis of the first cut confirmed a dry matter 27%, an ME value of 11.5 a 70D value and an intake value of 99, plus good yields were achieved.
“The grass was wilted in the field for 24 hours.”
Dean points out that these analysis results were obtained prior to the second cut being taken.
