Silage webinars for producers across NSW

LLS Silage webinars will be held over four weeks from 4  - 25 AugustWith recent rain across much of NSW, warm temperatures and generally low stock numbers, some producers have excess feed, particularly if they have sown grazing crops.

If you are in this situation, silage may be an option.

Join us for a series of four free webinars which will take you step-by-step through the process of silage production and use.

Who will be on the webinars?

Local Land Services is providing these webinars free of charge to livestock producers in any Local Land Services region of NSW.

The webinars will be led by NSW Department of Primary Industries Livestock Research officer, John Piltz.

He is based at the Wagga Wagga Agricultural Institute where he conducts research of relevance to livestock nutrition and forage conservation and is co-author of the ‘Successful Silage’ manual.
