Question: Where does the method of ensiling originate from?

Answer: The knowledge of ensiling originates 3000 years back in time. Already the ancient Greeks and Egyptians knew how to store plants and concentrates in dug out holes in the ground. During the 1950s the technique was refined and larger quantities of fodder could be ensiled.
