Abstract


Silage is one of the basic forms for preparing feed for ruminants, especially during the period for calves. Thus in the rations for dairy cows, it represents 40-50% of the total nutritional value. A particularly important role is played by mechanization technology for the preparation of the silage, using appropriate harvesting means. Combine harvesters for fodder plants are complex machines that can perform several technological operations such as: cutting plants, chopping and loading in the means of collection or lifting the material from the furrow. Harvesting fodder plants with the help of combines is the solution with the most significant advantages, because in this case high quality fodder is obtained, the complete mechanization of the harvesting process is ensured, the harvesting material requires a low consumption of live labor.
