This fodder is a staple food for animals and it directly contributes to the milk production hence it is very necessary to provide abundant fodder to the animals during lean periods as well. Prolonged preservation of Fodder in the form of Silage is the key in this case. Chopped green fodder packed in airtight conditions gets converted into Silage.

The ‘new’ method, whereby cut green mass is stored in large bags made from polythene, has in fact been tested in research stations for some years. Large Polypropylene bags also called Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC) manufactured by using high quality Polypropylene resin and Polyethylene liner. These bags are available in different capacities (100 kg to 1000 kg). Bags are portable and transportable, foldable, light weight and low cost and can be stored easily.

  1. Outcome(s) envisaged:
  • Increase in milk production to the tune of 20% – direct cash benefit to the farmers
  • Good animal health, no disease hence no medicine cost.
  • Enable Landless farmers to use silage.
  • Allows farmers to store silage anywhere they need it.
