Time of Wrapping Effects Silage Bale QualityTime of Wrapping Effects Silage Bale Quality

Baled silage offers operators a unique opportunity to harvest high quality forage in a shorter window of time compared to dry hay.

However, maximizing these benefits requires detailed management before, during and after harvest.
