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