Benefits of Maize Silage
The future of dairying is promising. Strong economic and population growth is expected to lift global demand for milk by 100 billion litres by 2020*.
To take advantage of this opportunity, the challenge for New Zealand farmers is to build high producing, more resilient systems which are profitable, environmentally sustainable and globally competitive.
Significantly more feed will be required to grow the volume of milk produced on NZ farms. While maximising pasture harvested will continue to be a priority, maize silage is the obvious supplement choice because it offers a range of benefits unmatched by other supplements.
