Forage Production

Grass-Wholecrop-Maize-Hay-Haylage-Straw

‘Your grass quality is our priority’

Forage Production is a key component of our contracting business; equally it is a key component of a farming business, at D & D Wallbank we realise the demands of each individual farmer. Silage quality largely effects production and profits, therefore it is necessary to ensure your contractor understands this and has the machinery, knowledge and ability to achieve top quality silage.
We provide both grass and wholecrop silage production services.

The grass silage production consists of two full teams, allowing us and each of our customers to make the most of the available weather windows. Mowers include two sets of 30ft cut claas triple mowers ensuring a service efficient on both time and fuel. Depending on farmer requirements, grass can be tedded if necessary. Forage harvesters include a John Deere 7450 and a John Deere 7380, both with the ability to alter chop length according to customer preferences. Grass is buckraked using JCB loading shovels, as this is a particularly important part of the silaging process drivers are knowledgeable and trained and are willing to complete the job according to your requirements.

We also offer a round baling service for silage, hay, haylage and straw. Using a McHale Fusion 2 allows us to provide both baling and wrapping in a single operation, allowing it to be carried out by one man and one machine, therefore reducing costs and improving efficiency for both us and the customer.

All machinery is fitted with floatation tyres, in order to reduce soil damage due to soft land and ground compaction.
