Grass Clipping Silage
Learn how to calculate to market price for Grass Clipping Silage. Silage is normally, at the very least 50% water. Because traditional silage is solely used by the producer that put it up, selling silage is not well known. We take the guesswork by allowing you to evaluate different feed sources by their dry matter basis.
In then end you will be able to compare the cost of a pound of protein, energy provided by the pound or other important factors to calculate the Cost/Lb of Gain. If you want some additional assistance with this calculation, please reach out to one of our Feed nutritionist at YCC at Info@biopacr.com
How to Calculate the Market Value of Grass Clipping Silage
Step 2: Multiply the market price X the silage reduction value of .47 = Grass Clipping Silage™ Market Value.
Here's an example from Texas:
When you check the local prices of Supreme or Premium Quality Hay from the USDA Website and find it to be selling for $280 Per Ton, you will discount the silage for the moisture by multiplying ($280.00 * .47) = $131.60. You would pay a market value of $131.60 per ton for lawn clipping silage which is comparable in dry matter basis to Supreme/Premium quality hay selling for $280.

More on Grass Clipping Silage
Farmers and home owners have always asked the question; why aren’t all the lawn clippings, not being fed to livestock? Yellowstone Compact & Commodities Corp and the development of the BioPac’r have finally removed the following obstacles and created the first ever portable silage processing system.
Fresh Grass Clippings begin to rot very quickly after they are harvested due to the exposure to oxygen that leads to the production of heat (Composting Process). The BioPac'r compacts the grass clippings as they are harvested, preventing the exposure to air which prevents the production of heat and the rotting process by causing the compacted biomass to become anaerobic.
There are enough grass clippings produced in 6 months to feed all the cattle in the USA for a year. Why feed grass clippings to cattle in the summer when our livestock already have enough available pasture? The BioPac'r facilitates the pickling process of fresh clipping into lawn Grass Clipping Silage. Once the 1-ton bales convert to lawn clipping silage after a 30 day processing period, the feed has a stable shelf life of 4-5 years. Wit the introduction of the BioPac'r, what gets mowed in the summer can now be fed in the winter or during droughts as Grass Clipping Silage.
Silage is currently made in silage pits, upright concrete and metal silage silos in those 300' long white plastic tubes you may have noticed in farm country along some of our highways. The processing of silage is restricted to a stationary site since these structures are so heavy you can't move them. They produce crops that are purposely grown to cut and be place into the above mentioned containers capable of producing an anaerobic environment and facilitating the ensiling process. Silage has always been reserved to the larger producers with vast amount of acreage to grow crops. The BioPac'r now evens the playing field, it allows the processing of easy to handle 1 ton bales by turf professionals. Small livestock feeders can now enjoy the benefits of lower cost, high quality Grass Clipping Silage grown by homeowners and harvested by landscapers (Grass Clipping Harvester).
BioPac'r Owners Can Now Help Recycle Plastic Silage Tarps,Silage Wrap and Silage Tube Plastic
Are you dealing with your own silage plastic nightmares, inundated by Ag Wrap, Silage Bags, Plastic from Silage Piles, Bale Bags or Silage Wrap (that is otherwise ending up in your local landfill)? Recycle them.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to locate the nearest landscaper to take this waste off your hands. As farmers begin to accumulate bags, landscapers with the BioPac'r can come by and compress (cube up, bale) the waste plastic in their BioPac'r for you for FREE!
Why would landscapers do this service for free? Because when you are feeding during the winter, their BioPac'r sits idle. This is a way for them the earn extra money when they take you waste plastic off your hands for a small fee and deliver in to a recycling center.
