Macra and Aurivo/Nutrias silage information night

Over the last number of months Macra na Feirme in the Northwest region has been running a silage competition in association with Aurivo Co Op and their Nutrias brand of animal feeds. The competition was open to Macra na Feirme young farmer members and a huge number of entries were received from county Roscommon.

  Samples were tested by Aurivo in their testing laboratory. Entrants were contacted by Aurivo farm commercial specialists/nutritionists with their results and received any nutrition advice that they required based on their silage sample results.

  The presentation night will take place in conjunction with a young farmer information meeting, on Tuesday, March 8th at 8 pm in the Sligo Park Hotel, Sligo. Presentations will be given on the night by Aurivo nutritionists and commercial farm specialists who will speak about the silage results as well as give young farmers practical tips for producing quality silage in 2016.
