Fodder Budgeting

It is important fodder stocks are carefully managed across the winter period.

Please complete the Fodder Budgeting sheet to evaluate your winter silage requirements. Where stocks are below winter silage requirements there are options available to you but you need to act now.

There is no single strategy to deal with the shortage, it’s a combination of actions that will help you deal with the problem. Cost is important but other factors also need to be considered: quality, the need for storage/handing facilities, cost of balancing for protein and minerals, the labour input, cash flow implications and feed space requirements.

Examine all options carefully – if necessary, please talk to an adviser before making any decisions.
