MCL Agri (Casserly’s, Lanesboro) in conjunction with Kiernan Milling had a silage sampling clinic and open day last Saturday. The day was a great success as many farmers came to have their silage evaluated for nutritional value.
The day was unique in that the silage was tested on the day and results were available immediately. This allows the farmer to make crucial decisions about the amount of silage needed for the winter, together with the amount and type of diets to supplement it with.
MCL had nutritional advisors on site on the day. The silage sampled varied in quality reflecting the wet summer. The advice is for farmers to avail of this service at MCL to learn more about the quality of their silage and to get advice on the best way to supplement diets. This will ultimately save money by matching the silage and correct diet to achieve maximum performance from your weanlings, growing/finishing cattle or dairy cows.
MCL intends to have further silage sampling clinics on site in the near future. Please keep an eye on social media or the Roscommon People for future dates. In the meantime, please contact Michael Casserly or Paddy Delaney at MCL for further information on 043-3321052.
