Here's a project for you guys that have a lawn but never had anything to do with farming.. Buy a heavy/thick drum liner/trash bag. Fill it with the clippings from your lawn mover. Twist the opening shut a bit, then sit on it with our knee to get all the air out. Then tie it shut with a steel wire or simular.. After a while you go silage, no addatives. If you got rabbits you just made them dinner😁

As far as I know, also not being an actual farmer is that in real life, the benefit of using a forage harvester instead of a forage wagon is that the grass gets chopped up much smaller and the end result is better silage or haylage.

In game, it’s much easier and cheaper to use a forage wagon and still get the same result.
Sounds right to me. About chopping silage, is it not also possible (in real life) to use a baler with a built-in chopper to obtain the similar quality silage? Think I read something about such bales having a higher density.
