Silage making !

Silage making today. The grass is cut, then rowed up into rows so that the chopper can hoover it up and into a trailer for carting back to the farm. Here it is put into a silage pit and rolled with heavy tractors until it is compressed and has no air in it. Finally a plastic sheet is pulled over it and secured. The grass will now ferment and will be ready to feed to the animals in the winter. Long days ! Video clips available on our facebook page.
