The sites can begin, there is no point in waiting any longer, especially if the weather is favorable.

Successful silage

Making a successful grass silo is not that simple, because many factors influence the conditions for its success (weather, stage of forage harvesting, site performance, silo design and use, etc.)

The first rule always remains the same: an early harvest, that is to say almost a week before the heading of the grasses (swelling of the end of the sheath), the legumes being them at the vegetative stage around 60 cm in height, it is the best compromise between quantity and quality. Beyond that, the quality drops very quickly.
