In Episode 10 of Silage Talk, the Dairy Herd Management team talks with Renato Schmidt, PhD, Forage Products Specialist with Lallemand Animal Nutrition about feeding unfermented or shortly-fermented silage.
Some producers cannot afford to wait for the forage crop to ensile properly, so they simply need to start feeding out right after the crop is put in the silo.
Dr. Schmidt addresses the following questions:
- What should they expect in terms of "silage"?
- How can they proceed to start feeding out?
- What else should they monitor regarding the animals and minimize potential problems?
