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.
Due to the delay of the optimum time for harvesting corn, we immediately obtained the used concrete board in order to make bunker silo.
The wheels of the tractor should be washed carefully before using for pressing material activity.
Corn was harvested and stuffing material prepared for pressing.
