Yesterday we rolled-up and wrapped 72 bales of ryegrass that had been mowed in an 11-acre field on Monday afternoon. We will move the baleage from the field to a storage area later today. The weather forecast likely means we will not try to harvest anymore this week, but I anticipate mowing several acres over the weekend in order to resume baling and wrapping on Monday.
The baleage shoud be properly ensiled and ready to feed our milking herd in 6-8 weeks. Once it is ready, we will begin mixing it with last year's corn silage in our cows' daily feed ration.
