Fermentation quality of mulberry leaves silages
after 90 days of ensiling.
Aerobic stability: All of the treatment silages
at 150 days were subjected to an aerobic stability test in four 2L polyethylene terepthalate bottles for treatment at room temperature (25AdegC), which lasted for 5 days by the procedure of Ashbell et al.
Fresh chopped sorghum and silages
(10 g each) were shaken well by hand with 90 mL sterilized distilled water, and serially diluted at [10.
The lower aerobic stability of silages
, containing high content of lactic acid and soluble carbohydrates, occurs because microorganisms such as yeasts have the ability to use these compounds in aerobiosis as a substrate for the production of C[O.
Forage samples for chemical analysis post-conservation were collected from silages
The effects of temperature on the aerobic stability of wheat and corn silages
Two dairy enterprises from Pembrokeshire topped the 2014-15 silage
awards run by the Federation of Welsh Grassland Societies and the RWAS.
2008), who added formic acid, salt or beet pulp in tomato silages
and observed greater DM and CP levels after 30 days.
Clamps were depleted last winter/spring, so many farmers have been looking to make enough silage
in order to build up stocks.

Winner of the Clamp Silage
title was John Parry, of Goitre Farm, Kerry, who impressed judges with his "remarkable" indoor feeding system.
A new national initiative by the British Grassland Society along with the English Beef and Lamb Executive says this need not involve either higher quality silage
or increased conservation costs.
