In order to scientifically assess the quality of the feed, an independent laboratory measured samples of the silage blocks using Flieg’s score. The quality of new samples was measured in the same way after three days and after seven days.
The temperature of the corn blocks only rose by 2 ºC in three days, even though the average outside temperature was more than 30 ºC. Flieg’s score showed no change, even after seven days. This means accurate ensilaged roughage can be stored in blocks in a feed kitchen for several days without losing quality, even in hot weather.
