pH Determination (Silage Only) in Feed and Forages
- Fill a 150 mL beaker half full with fresh silage and add sufficient water to set sample leaving about 1/2 inch of free water over the top.
- Stir and let stand 30 minutes.
- Stir and remove the water from the silage by pouring into another beaker.
- Read the pH of the solution immediately using a calibrated pH meter and buffers, pH 4.0 and pH 7.0. Record value with one decimal.
