Forage Stocks

Have you conserved enough forage for winter? It’s easy to check with Kingshay’s Silage Calculator.

The calculator works from the basic information you give to do all the maths for you. To calculate forage stocks, you input the size of pits, number of bales and can even add crops still to be harvested, using the acres and anticipated yield. This is then compared with stock numbers, types and feeding periods to quantify forage surplus or deficit.

“This quick check at the start of winter will identify any likely shortages and when that is the case it will allow forage stocks to be stretched, possibly using straw or co-products, or more forage to be sourced in good time,” says Kingshay’s  Senior Technical Manager, Peter Shipton.
