Multi-Cut Silage

Adopting a multi-cut silage system, which reduces the interval between silage cuts could be one way to help farmers maximise milk from forage - something nearly all respondents from a 2018 Kingshay survey identified as a priority.

Cutting more frequently means grass is younger, leafier, higher quality and highly digestible. As a result, cows are able to eat more of it, increasing forage dry matter intakes and enabling bought-in feeds to be displaced. This provides the opportunity to maximise nutrient production off the same acreage, boost production from forage and reduce overall diet costs
