The dry spring has meant that the silage crop is looking light, probably only tow thirds of what we would normally expect. This is going to leave us short of food for the winter period.

That is the down side, the up side is that the quality is super, harvested in dry conditions, slightly earlier than normal, this will give some real quality to the silage. The other good news is that the maize drilled in mid April, has gone off at a real gallop, going to need rain later, but looks good at the moment.
