Round haylage in Sussex

Rules

  • Do not expect to make good haylage out of poor quality grass – it should never be made from salvaged hay.
  • The final product normally has a pH of 5.5 and will have high residual sugar and low acid content, making it more palatable to horses than traditional silage..
  • Mown grass should be tedded and raked, similarly to hay, but lifted a day or two sooner.
  • A minimum of six to eight layers of wrap should be used, preferably more. Improved bale quality and a price premium will compensate for this.
  • Control moles and cut at least 6cm (2.5 inches) above ground to avoid soil contamination.
  • Store bales on their ends and at a maximum of two high (Health and Safety directive).
  • Cover stack with netting to prevent bird and rodent damage.
