Forage requirement calculator

How to use the forage requirement calculator

Input the stock numbers (by category) you plan to retain during the winter and the numbers of months you will need silage for (usually 5-6). The calculator will estimate how many tonnes of silage (or bales of circa 30% dry matter) are needed.

Consider how many months of winter you need to cater for. It is prudent to have one month’s supply as a reserve/buffer stock. Consider geographic location, land type, and if you will have other feed sources available.
