Silage Advice

How far ahead of the forage harvester should I mow?

Not too far. If the grass is wilting rapidly there is a danger of the dry matter getting too high.  Similarly, you do not want to risk having to leave a large acreage down if rain stops harvest.


Remember that the crop probably dries very little overnight but is still at risk from unpredictable weather.
