How to make silage for cows?

Expert of JICA Project for Market-Oriented Milk Production in Chuy Province helped farmers to store forage for cows – prepare corn silage.

JICA expert, counterparts, farmers and students together prepared silage on the model dairy farm in the Innovation Centre of the Kyrgyz National Agrarian University named after K.I. Skryabin.

Corn silage is nutritious and palatable feed for dairy cows. Silage making activity includes harvesting corn, pressing it and conserving through bunker silo.
