Six Steps to Consistently Better Silage

Volac will be sponsoring a series of Clamp Talks at this year’s Grassland and Muck Event at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire on 24-25 May, 2017.

In recognition of farmer concerns about volatility in bought-in feed costs, animal nutrition and silage experts, Volac, will be sponsoring a series of ‘Clamp Talks’ entitled "Six Steps to Consistently Better Silage" at this year’s Grassland and Muck event, to help farmers achieve more from home-produced silage.

Sponsored ‘Clamp Talks’ at this year’s Grassland and Muck event will form part of Volac’s new Cut to Clamp initiative to help farmers produce consistently better silage

Grassland & Muck, the triennial event organised by the Royal Agricultural Society of England, returns to Stoneleigh, Warwickshire on 24-25 May 2017.

Forming part of Volac’s new Cut to Clamp initiative, the focused talks will provide an opportunity to hear top silage-making tips from renowned independent silage consultant, Dr David Davies.

Cut to Clamp aims to help farmers produce consistently better silage by focusing on best practice in six key areas: cutting, wilting, treating, harvesting, clamping and feeding.

Its launch follows a Volac survey of over 100 dairy farmers that found that, despite more than 80% of farmers looking to reduce bought-in feed costs, and 90% rating greater use of grass silage as either extremely or very important in helping to achieve this, nearly 80% of farmers thought they could make better silage.

The daily, 10-minute ‘Clamp Talks’ will take place at the event’s North Clamp at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Volac will also be exhibiting in the event’s main trade area.
