About feed storage
Ensure you have rackets on which to put the feeds. They should be 3 inches from the ground and not touching the wall. At any single moment, there should be no trade-off of disease due to bad storage.
Buy your feed stocks when harvest seasons are starting which are dry and when they are in the middle of the season stop as maize grain prices are going up.
