Haylage and holes was created by Foxwell
We had issues with last year's haylage in that mice/rats seem to have nibbled holes in the plastic wrap. The bottom row of haylage seems to be particularly bad - most of the bales are unusable - I'm also wondering whether this could also be because they're sitting on the ground. So we're thinking about what to do this year to try and minimise this issue. Would it be a good idea to stack the haylage on pallets and then scatter traps and bait around?

going forward maybe store in a different area or use bait

check bales weekly & tape up any holes

they are best stored directly on the ground so if there are any hole underneath the air cant get to them

Animals rule our place... cows, calves, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, chickens, ducks... the list goes on
...."lifestyle block like" 25 or so acres around the house attached to a rather large farm with dairy drystock & a 600 cow dairy conversion :)....1500 acres to call home
