Silage is a type of fodder made from green foliage crops which have been preserved by acidification, achieved through can be fed to cattle, sheep and other such ruminants (cud-chewing animals). The fermentation and storage process is called ensilage, ensiling or silaging, and is usually made from grass crops, including maize, sorghum or other cereals, using the entire green. Harvested Forages deals with the subject of food for domestic animal feeding. Such food is called "forage" and includes things like alfalfa and other plants usually referred to as "hay." Topics include the ways that this forage is produced, how it is harvested, and ways that it should be stored. The Biochemistry of Silage Subsequent Edition by P. McDonald (Author), A. R.

"No other silage book can compare with this detailed coverage, including in-depth discussions of silage microbiology, biochemistry, assessing quality, preharvest and postharvest factors, use of additives, harvesting, storage, feeding, whole-farm management, as well as a global scope. Individual chapters are devoted to the production, preservation, and feeding of specific crops. silage, with its relatively high-energy content, is also well adapted for use in low-cost rations for fatten-ing cattle. Corn silage requires less labor per ton to produce than many other forage crops. It can ex-tend the harvest period for the entire corn acreage and provide an File Size: 1MB.   How to Make Silage. Preserving feed for livestock doesn't always mean putting up sun-dried hay. Silage is also made as a chopped, fermented feed source, primarily from annual crops like corn, barley, sorghum, oats, millet, and occasionally 91%(60). The feeding value of silage is mainly determined by intake and digestibility of silage [].The silage quality and availability of nutrients influence animal performance [].The intake of silage is generally lower than the intake of fresh forage [] because the presence of toxic substances produced during the fermentation as amines; also due to the high concentration of organic acids and decrease Author: Juliana Silva de Oliveira, Edson Mauro Santos, Ana Paula Maiados Santos.
