Effects of delayed sealing during silo filling

Spörndly, Rolf; Pauly, Thomas; Sundberg, Martin

Abstract

Swedish farmers have generally a good understanding of the recommendations for silage making provided by advisory services. However, few farmers apply the recommendation to seal the silo temporarily when the filling process is interrupted (e.g. overnight break or machinery failure). We believe this might be due to a prevailing uncertainty about the negative effects of delayed sealing. The objective of this study was to evaluate effects of delayed sealing on silage quality.
