Maize Silage is an integral part of New Zealand's livestock systems allowing farmers to increase production and profit. Having Maize Silage as a feeding option allows farmers to feed livestock all year round. It’s proven to increase milk production by optimizing stocking rates and extending lactation length. Maize Silage is a cost effective, high energy, starch-rich forage that is reliable, consistent and helps support high levels of animal performance.
Winter feed in the form of silage has always been a valuable resource, however recent significant rises in animal feed costs have highlighted the need to maximize yields from baled silage in order to get the most out of the summer crop.The key to achieving good silage is the creation of dense, well shaped bales and the effectiveness of the airtight seal, which require best practices across the entire baling process. Both our McHale and Case Balers provide superb bale density and uniformity, meaning less cost and a better end wrapped product. Contact us now for a full list of our grass silage services.
