Silage Advice

Should I pull the sheet down over the face at night?

No, this is a very bad idea as it will create a warm, humid area behind the sheet, encouraging yeast and mould growth.

Always keep the sheet rolled back off the face but weigh the front edge down to prevent air getting under the sheet. During periods of very heavy rain it can be pulled down temporarily to prevent rain soaking into the face.
