climatic conditions: the best time to make silage is between July 15 to August 30. It is also the time where there is abundant fodder and which allows me to retain it for the dry season. But besides being this period of greater intensity of rain will lead to be filled the gully will not deepen, nor the size of the same enlarge due to erosion. 2. Filling of the silo or silos: according to Duthil 1967 the filling is not necessary to finish it in a day, but with various operations can be distributed by long days. See Outlook Email for more details and insights.
In our specific case you must fill in a same day and leverage all the gullies that exist. 3 Tamping: this is a primordial task to achieve the quality of the silage, provided that if it is not well compacted the Green dough in the silo this would lead to occurrence of unwanted fermentation during the realization of the same. The temperature should never exceed 50 C. 4 Capping: a location near land can be used for this. Creating a layer of 15 cm thick this contribute to tamping. This process of silage should not exceed 4-6 d to avoid undesirable fermentation and losses of nutrients. At the conclusion of this process should be the gully converted into silo as shown in Figure B, as A figure, shows how you should go leaving the forage or crop residues located inside the gully. Layers forage gully a. B layer of Earth and stone to make pressure on the forage, the most recommended is to use stones of different sizes since the Earth due to the drag may be lost. Stones of different sizes is important emphasize that rocks which are located at the bottom of the gully van so a silage is in perfect condition, and also so that the taste on the palate is greater should add them additives such as: stimulants of fermentation as honeys, flours, roots or tubers, sugars and others.
