For the Future of Farming

Monitoring the changing feed characteristics of maize silage during storage means that Dorset-based Lee Ford can manage and efficiently utilise the crop throughout its lifetime.

He milks a 280-cow, all-year-round calving herd – currently averaging 9,500 litres – as well as 1,800 dairy goats, at Ilsington Farm in Tincleton near Dorchester. And he has always seen high quality forage as a vital to the success of the business. Click here to read the full case study.
