THE region's recent rainfall has left farmers in the enviable position of having too much feed for limited stock numbers.
A new series of NSW Local Land Services (LLS) webinars is set to help farmers manage the problem through silage.
The four-part webinar series will guide farmers through all aspects of using silage as feed storage, including the use of underground pit storage.
LLS livestock officer Sue Street said the free webinars would run throughout the month of August, just in time for this year's harvesting season.
"Previous generations commonly used silage and now it's becoming popular again," Ms Street said.
"In recent times, we have seen many farmers helped through drought by digging up or opening silage that was stored or buried decades ago.
"Many producers who de-stocked during drought, now have excess forage, and in some cases, cereal crops which could be turned into silage for future use on-farm or as a saleable product."
The webinar series will be available to all livestock producers across the state via every LLS regional service, including North West LLS.
NSW Department of Primary Industries livestock research officer, John Piltz, who co-authored the 'Successful Silage' manual, will be the guest speaker on the webinars.
"Silage can be cut earlier in spring and provides more flexibility and higher quality than hay if done correctly," Mr Piltz said.
"Silage will generally keep indefinitely while it remains sealed and anaerobic or oxygen-free, so it is really important to pack the forage to remove and keep out air."
The online webinars will be held every Tuesday in August, starting August 4.
