It is estimated that between $600 million and $2.2 billion worth of silage is lost each year simply due to dry matter (DM) losses from spoilage and heating1 — decreases in production due to nutritive value losses coul
County and state fairs will be in full swing very soon, giving 4-H and FFA members the opportunity to show off another year of hard work. In addition to catching up with friends and competing in the show ring, fairs allow us to connect and engage with the general public.
Silage “shrink” — due to losses during ensiling — means that producers end up not only with less available feed due to dry matter (DM) loss, but it also results in lower feed quality due to those DM losses being
Recent price support caused by a lower national yield forecast dissipated this week, as negative consumption news and improving weather for harvest appeared, says University of Illinois ag economist Todd Hubbs.
Minnesota dairy producer Tom Luebke knows just how important it is to prevent mold and heating in his silage. Even though he solved his spoilage problems 18 years ago, the experience is still fresh in his memory. Luebke
