AIDCO will start packing a 1000 Kg corn silage bales, round bales wrapped by a stretch plastic film.
AIDCO started producing TMR feed in a 50 Kg bags and 1000 Kg bales
It is one of the most well known and widely used forage crops in the world. Its high yield and quality allow it to be used in feeding programs for many different types of livestock. Alfalfa is used primarily as a feed for horses and dairy cattle. Alfalfa could also potentially be used in beef cattle operations as a feed for animals with high nutrient requirements, such as lactating cows or back grounded calves.
The versatility of alfalfa makes it useful in many operations. Whether it is used for hay, silage, grazing, and green-chop or as a rotation crop, alfalfa is unrivaled in its ability to produce high yields of exceptional quality forage.
Corn silage is a high-quality forage crop that is used on many dairy farms and on some beef cattle farms. Its popularity is due to the high yield of a very digestible, high-energy crop, and the ease of adapting it to mechanized harvesting and feeding. Corn for silage fits ideally into no-till and double-cropping programs.
The object of silage making is to preserve the harvested crop by anaerobic (without oxygen) fermentation. This process uses bacteria to convert soluble carbohydrates into acetic and lactic acid, which “pickles” the crop. In a well-sealed silo, it can be stored for long periods of time without losing quality. To produce high-quality corn silage, it is important to do a good job in growing, harvesting and preserving the crop.
Vetch and Barley
Barley is a cereal grain that has demonstrated world-wide importance. Although generally considered an energy source, barley has more protein than other cereals commonly used in ruminant diets. Barley needs to be processed to be used effectively in cattle diets but the procedure need not be elaborate. Steam treatment of barley has a less pronounced effect than is observed with either corn or grain sorghum. Promising results have been obtained through chemical processing of whole barley, but such procedures are still in the experimental stage. Because barley has a relatively rapid fermentation rate it should be gradually introduced into cattle diets
There are about 150 species of vetch. Some 25 species are native to the United States. However, the species that in commercial use including hairy vetch (Vicia villosa Roth), are all native to Europe or western Asia.
Hairy vetch, also called sand vetch, is a moderately winter-hardy species. It is the only vetch species that can be fall-seeded and reach maturity the following July.
Vetches have a feeding value slightly lower than that of clover and alfalfa. The protein content of vetch hay ranges from 12 to 20%, depending on the stage of development of the crop when cut. Vetch is often grown with a small grain for forage.
