Silage competition of the chamber of Agriculture Lower Saxony - impressive victory of BONSILAGE

The chamber of Agriculture of Lower Saxony organizes each year a silage competition to award the farms with the best fodder management or best silages. This enables a better assessment about the fodder quality in your region. In 2016 the competition is a magnificent triumph for farmers which trust in BONSILAGE-products. 


Fodder: quality and efficiency in focus


On the farms are a lot of reserves with regards to fodder efficient. Especially in times with substandard milk prices the costs for fodder must be as low as possible. This is possible only with best fodder quality, which is also the basis for high fodder performances. This connection is an important principle for those successful farms. Not surprisingly, each year well-known farmers are the winner of the silage competition.
