After the rain, the puddles on the farms' laneways disappeared quickly, and the thirsty ground absorbed all available water within 24 hours.
Now, the tractors are back in the paddocks, collecting, shifting and stacking silage so that it can be transported back to the farms' stores.
Making silage and storing it correctly are critical to a well-functioning dairy farm. Silage is part of our dairy cows' diet. Its quality can impact on the dairy cow's nutrition and, thus, the amount of milk she produces.
