AL-BARAKAH FARMS MAIZE SILAGE
- Maize silage serves as high-energy forage for dairy cows. This is most important for high-producing herds.
- Maize silage, with its relatively high energy content, is also well adapted for use in low-cost rations for fattening cattle.
- Good Maize Silage is an excellent feed for cattle, both beef and dairy as it contains plenty of protein and energy.
- Milk production is highly dependent on the amount of energy a cow consumes.
- To make sure that our customers get the best quality silage, we use state of the art machines to harvest, chop, bale, and wrap the silage along with the best quality inoculants to enhance the fermentation process.
Al Barakah HARVESTING:
The goal in making good Maize silage is to efficiently harvest and get the maximum amount of digestible nutrients per unit of land area. For this, time of harvesting and the machinery one uses are important. To get maximum nutrients these harvesters make sure that no grain or green is left undamaged which is very important for digestion of the animal. This helps the animal to utilize the nutritional benefit of the silage to the maximum. We use Celikel Challenger Maize Chopper series for silage making at Al Barakah Farms.
Al Barakah BALER:
Key to achieve good silage is the creation of dense, well shaped bales and the effectiveness of the airtight seal. For good age and freshness of silage, the bales should be compact, as it is necessary for the fermentation process. To ensure proper baling, we use Balers from Celikel, which have advantage over other balers as these make the fermentation process quick and press the fodder for a longer life of silage.
Al Barakah INOCULANTS:
Inoculants are an important additive to the silage for its fermentation process as it maintains the balance between moisture and dry matter, giving it a longer life. We use Inoculants produced by Pioneer Group which is leading and trusted name in this field.
An imperative element of the bale wrapping process is the selection of a high quality bale wrap in order to provide the best protection possible. The vital requirements of a good bale wrap are superior strength, effective tack properties and UV radiation protection .Good quality bale wrap withstands the rigors of high speed wrapping equipment and the stresses placed upon it during transportation and storage.
AL-BARAKAH FARMS ALFALFA HAY
- Hay making is a process in which fodder is preserved for longer period of time without danger of spoilage, while keeping losses of dry matter and nutrients to the minimum. In this process fodder is dried up-to extent that its moisture content is reduced from 70 – 90% to 10- 15% or less. At this moisture the chances of spoilage of fodder are minimum.
- Crops which are suitable for hay making are both leguminous and non leguminous crops. Mostly alfalfa (Lucern), Rhode grass, Barseem, Oat, and Sudan grasses are considered best suitable for hay making. However, Alfalfa hay is considered the best hay.
- Punjab and Sindh areas in Pakistan are major cultivator sof wide varieties of nutrition enriched Rhodes grass and alfalfa grass. Blessed by Nature for having one of the perfect atmospheric conditions to grow grass, Al Barakah Farms have gained the experience over the years to produce different kind of grass in bulk amount and deliver fresh and quality hay to our customers. The variety of grass produced in our farms are – Rhodes Grass, Alfalfa Grass hay.
At Al Barakah Farms, we use modern machinery to harvest Alfalfa to get maximum output and higher inefficiencies.
- Hay is packed in square bales for easy storage and transportation
