It is important that farmers assess the amount of silage left in store and establish that there is enough to last throughout the winter months. If there is a shortfall, action should be taken as soon as possible.

The quantity of silage within a silo can be estimated by calculating the volume (length x breadth x depth) of the silage by the approximate density of the silage. The silage density is dependent on the dry matter of the silage.

Below is a silage calculator, which will do all the adjustments and calculations for you. Simply input your figures and you’ll know exactly where you stand regarding your silage store – forewarned is forearmed.

By managing your feed store you can balance the amount of available silage with the nutritional requirements of your livestock. Prudent management of your resources allows you to plan for future production of feeds, and can ultimately play a critical role in providing sufficient quantities of feed to allow you to attain optimal production worth from your livestock.
