Tour Scotland Travel Video Farmers Harvesting Silage Field Rural Perthshire

Tour Scotland Summer travel video of farmers harvesting silage in a field on ancestry visit to rural Perthshire, Scotland. Silage is fermented, high moisture stored fodder which can be fed to cattle, sheep and other such ruminants, cud chewing animals, or used as a biofuel feedstock for anaerobic digesters. It is fermented and stored in a process called ensilage, ensiling or silaging, and is usually made from grass crops, including maize, sorghum or other cereals, using the entire green plant, not just the grain. Silage can be made from many field crops, and special terms may be used depending on type: oatlage for oats, haylage for alfalfa. Blog post of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to travel and visit one day.
