Mould contamination in silage
On a farm visit in Co Offaly, a client complained about mould contamination in purchased bales of silage. He had to purchase baled silage for his herd of Brown Swiss cows due to feed shortages. He claimed that he had no problems with mould contamination when he ensured that 22 wraps of silage encased his silage versus the standard 16 wraps. This issue is more pertinent to high dry matter silages.
