The aim of haymaking is to retain and preserve all the nutritional elements present in the grass for as long as possible and guarantee healthy forage for animals.
When a plant is cut, it dies and the vital flow from the roots is interrupted; the plant cells then trigger enzymatic and metabolic processes that use up any available reserves. The substrata involved in this degradation are non-structural carbohydrates (NSC, also known as soluble carbohydrates) such as starch, saccharose, glucose, fructose and other sugars, which can be consumed for a prolonged period whilst the grass is wet. The plant continues the mechanisms of breathing even after being cut, until the water content falls below 12-13%. To block the loss of nutritional principles, it is necessary to accelerate the water evaporation process as much as possible, thus limiting the time the plant continues to breath. The process that makes grass turn to hay is only completed when the dry substance amounts to more than 88%.
On May 7th and 8th at the Alte Kongresshalle in Munich will take place the first edition on Munich Organic, the International Trade Fair for Grain and Raw Materials in the Organic Sector.
From the 1st to 3rd of February, 2019 the Garda Exhibition Centre in Montichiari (BS) will host the 91sth edition of the Agricultural Farming Exhibition.
Gruppo Carli will exhibit at the EuroTier 2018 in Hanover, Germany, and will be happy to welcome guests in the booth location n. A37 Hall 20 to illustrate its range of forage and bedding.
Gruppo Carli will attend the second edition of Agro Oman, happy to present its natural forage and bedding, entirely produced in Italy.
You are welcome at the booth n. 5 at HALL 5, in the Italian Area.
To obtain an appropriate diet for dairy cattle it is necessary to individuate the real nutritional value of the feed employed in the farm.
Knowing this allows to use the most suitable forage for lactating bovines, dry cows and animals in growing phase.
On March 18 and 19, GRUPPO CARLI will exhibit for the first time at KIAFE Kuwait, happy to welcome visitors at their booth at HALL 4! Welcome to our booth to learn more about Italian alfalfa and forage!
Organized under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries Wealth, Agro Oman and Fisheries Expo will be held at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre in Muscat, from 15th to 17th of May
About 49 million laying hens, 40 million turkeys and broilers and about 8 million rabbits, 13 billion eggs and 1.7 million tons of poultry meat - this is the summary, in figures, of the Italian poultry industry.
The positive trend towards organic farming started in the last decade and it is now growing globally: the demand for organic products is steadily increasing, more and more farmers grow organic and more and more land is converted to organic farming. Result: 179 countries recorded production from organic farming in 2016!
With nearly 2,400 exhibitors spread over 240,000 m2 of exhibition space, EuroTier offers a comprehensive overview and global level on the technical innovations and genetics, and services available for animal husbandry, especially as regards the rearing of cattle.
The fiber digestibility of Italian ryegrass is high enough to replace a third of the alfalfa and corn silage in dairy diets, says Dave Combs, a University of Wisconsin dairy scientist.
“We’ve known for a long time that ryegrasses in general are very different from most other grasses,” Combs says...
