Cow ForageEach farm is different in its ability to grow forages. Factors which affect your choice of forage are:

  • Location of land relative to farm
  • Soil type
  • Rainfall
  • Temperature
  • Day length
  • Availability of labour
  • Availability of machinery/contractors
  • Storage facilities
