On calls in Co. Derry today, where a client told me that silage was getting very scarce during the cold spell in April and May. He informed me of a farmer who makes and sells silage on an animal basis. Over the years, the silage pit was never emptied and was replenised on an annual basis with new season silage. With the demand for silage this year, they had reached the back of the pit where silage had been made in 1985.
