Differences in Silage and Haylage?
I know some people feed their horses haylage and many people have mixed feelings about it. I am wondering the pros and cons of feeding it to horses. I am also wondering about how Silage and Haylage differ from one another ?
haylage can be fed very sucessfully to horses up to 40% of their dry matter intatke daily - but if must be kept fresh!
silage is generic term reffering to all fermeted forage products (corn, hay, sorgum, grains, etc.) many times a more educated person will only mean corn silage when using the term
haylage is fermeted grass.
The biggest problem I've had with haylage is feeding it fast enough. Once you cut the cover off, you might only have 3-4 days before it's cattle feed. You have to monitor it constantly.
