HOW TO KIND Or HAY c COST YOU LEASt AND PAY YOU MO * f Be certain to pack grass silage well in a trench or other type of horizontal silo. Packing presses the material together, excluding air and forming a seal against outside air — a common cause of spoilage. If the top layer has a higher moisture, it will pack'tightly and form a seal against air. A major criticism of trench silos is that silage has to be taken out every day regardless of weather. To solve this problem, let cows feed themselves. This self-feeding gate moves back as silage is eaten. A tractor-scraper or front-end loader makes it relatively simple to keep the floor clean.

Farm machinery has been a major factor in the trend toward wide use of grass for silage. The first cutting of hay is quickly delivered to the silo with forage chopper, blower, and self- unloading wagon. This Wisconsin dairyman is entering a monthly milk statement in his farm record book. Dairymen who keep records like this tell us that grass silage helps to hold feed costs down and milk production up. Some dairy husbandrymen tell us that farming with grass is working with nature, rather than against her. TM IDM UAOMI Ml HUU* UMI-WINMCtwn OOPS! Get HMcx in the picture quick! Fisherman's error?
