 Prolonged unsettled weather has resulted in limited fodder supplies on farms across the country.  Poor quality silage with low dry matter and ME content is all too common!

 At Capper Trading we can offer a range of forage stretcher diets starting at just £153.00/t.  We also have a range of young calf and beef finishing diets containing quality forage.  Please do contact us to discuss your requirements.

 Fodder Stock:

To measure the amount of silage in your pit multiply the length (m) by the width (m) by the height (m) and divide this figure by 1.4.  This will give you the total fresh weight (in tonnes) in your pit.  Typically round bale silage weighs from 550kg – 700kg per bale.



As a general rule of thumb Suckler cows will consume up to 45kg of silage per day, beef cattle will consume up to 30kg per day and weanlings will consume approximately 25kg per day.  Feeding higher ratios of concentrate feed will evidently control consumption rates.
