Abstract This report described the losses during harvesting, storage and feed out period of grass silage. It was estimated that there was a considerable risk of extra losses due to aerobic deterioration and moderate conservation. Farmrelated computations showed that economics and emission of greenhouse gases went together in limiting extra losses. For an average farm with 100 dairy cows, net return to labour and management may decrease by €3000 to €5000 as a result of aerobic deterioration and moderate conservation. The extra emission of greenhouse gases remained limited at approximately 1.5%.
