Dave is the UK’s leading independent silage consultant and an expert in the making and management of silage. With a twenty year career in the industry Dr Davies has produced and worked on many trials and research projects focusing on improving silage making in the dairy sector. These findings transfer well to the UK AD sector where, as we know, silage clamp losses have a massive impact on the financial success of a plant.
