Keep silage bales in a safe place, FUW warns

FOLLOWING reports of washed away silage bales, in the Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire areas of Wales, which have caused problems in rivers, the FUW is urging farmers to keep their silage bales in a safe and secure place.

FUW Pembrokeshire county executive officer Rebecca Voyle said: “Silage is a premium commodity this year and expensive to replace, in addition, it can cause untold problems if it is not stored securely and finds its way into watercourses during periods of

flooding.
“Given that some

bales in the

counties Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire have already caused problems by blocking rivers, we would urge farmers to check that their bales are stored securely to avoid any further issues over the coming months.”
