The introduction of haylage to the ration has a beneficial effect on animals: increased weight gain, milk yield, fat and protein content in milk. At the same time, haylage costs less than mixed fodder, so all this happens together with the reduction of costs and production costs.
Drying hay takes several days, sometimes it takes more than a week, putting silage in the trench also takes about a week. At the same time and even an hour after moving is a decrease of quality and nutritional value of feed. Therefore, fast haymaking makes it possible to get high-fed feed for winter.
Losses that occur during harvesting, transportation or storage, as well as during distribution of haylage are often less than hay or silage. At the same time the technology of its preparation is multioptional. It is convenient because every farm has its own characteristics and needs.
High-protein grasses are suitable for haylage: goatweed, alfalfa, amaranth. Along with them you can lay cereals at the stage of milk-wax ripeness. Thus haylage will be an excellent feed not only for livestock and dairy cattle, but also suitable for feeding pigs and poultry.
Drying of hay takes several days, sometimes it takes more than a week, laying of silage in a trench also takes about a week. At the same time, every day and even an hour after mowing is a decrease in the quality and nutritional value of the feed. Therefore, quick haymaking makes it possible to get high-fed forage for the winter period.
Losses that occur during harvesting, transportation or storage, as well as during distribution of haylage are often less than those of hay or silage. At the same time, the technology of its preparation is multivariable. This is convenient because each farm has its own characteristics and needs.
First option. Self-propelled forage harvesters or field choppers with a capacity of up to 100 tons per hour are suitable for pick-up and additional chopping. This is an excellent solution for a large farm if it is possible to establish timely transportation of such amount of grass for further harvesting and storage.
The second option. For small farms, trailed forage harvesters, which can also perform chopping, are better suited. They are less productive (on average 30 tons per hour), but the tractor can simultaneously tow such equipment together with the trailer to transport the green mass. For a small farm it is easier to remove from the field this amount of harvesting for haylage.
The third option. Using a baler chopper for picking up grass mass. In this case the grass can be immediately packed in twine or net. Packing in the net is faster. In addition, it better protects the forage and the finished bales can be stored in the field.
The fourth option. The most high-tech: baler shredder-packer picks up the green mass, presses it, binds it with twine or net, and then packs haylage in film. The net in this case will create more proper conditions for storing haylage than twine. It has many advantages over this classic packing agro-material:
