Failing to prepare= prepare to fail?

It’s an old adage, but one that tends to ring true, but as soon as you hear it makes you remember that sickening feeling in the bottom of your stomach that you had on exam day, when you realised that actually milking cows and driving tractors after school every night was unlikely to contribute to a successful outcome in your maths exam! Nevermind, most of us have attempted to confine that feeling to history, but there may just be more than a few of you that get that same feeling when you open your clamp of silage or look at your costings or bank statement?

Multicut silages – a review

Forages this winter presented a particular challenge on farm when it came to rationing. There were many instances of variability in animal response to diet ‘tweaking’, which were put down to abnormal silage profiles. Generally, first cuts were earlier and last year and did feed quite well but in many cases, there wasn’t a lot of it, but as the table below illustrates on average they weren’t significantly improved on previous years.
