Central silage for 11 Dutch dairy farms

28-08-2014 | |

Dairy Global and Boerderij Magazine were present at the first time the bunks of an cooperatively owned central silage were filled by 11 Dutch dairy farmers. They decided to start a cooperation with one central silage for their grass and maize as well as other feed ingredients. The farmers produce grass for the silage and buy as a cooperative feed concentrates to be mixed in a TMR. Mixing and feed out will start from the central location with cooperatively owned/rented equipment and reach out to the farmers living within 15 kilometres of the central silage.
