Silage Season.

It’s here again , silage season for us it started this morning and on the grand scheme of things our feed making is only small scale. We had a laugh at lunch yesterday when someone said they closed off our whole farm for their silage making made us realise how small we are .
Small or not silage or hayledge making is an event on every farm that happens this time of the year. It’s the time of year when every weather station and website is looked at twenty times a day, grass is checked everyday to see if it might just be ready to cut and guesses made about how much bales will be got from the fields .

We started this morning and only have half of our total amount we want to cut ready the rest won’t be cut till July. The littlest farmer of course had to travel to the field on the tractor but wouldn’t stay on it while the farmer was mowing. He kept me company as you will see in our video clips at the end.

The sun is lovely and warm today and there is a nice breeze in off the sea so we are hoping it will wilt well for us and we hope to make hayledge on Sunday evening.

While the farmer was mowing I had the littlest farmer to keep me company and all he wanted to do was video himself talking about silage and what his favourite tractor was , he didn’t stop talking the whole time we were there. We hope to bale on Sunday so will have that part of our feed making to show you all then.
Have you started your silage making yet ? Enjoy the lovely weather 🙂
