So, I'll ask. What determines the PH? I have been feeding baleage since it was probably first created. Don't want to jinx myself, but have we just been lucky? Like Silver said, we've baled it dripping wet and almost completely dry.
Edit: Feed analysis doesn't show PH.

Fermentable carbohydrates (starches, sugars, mainly) are converted by bacteria to organic acids (lactic, propionic, butyric), lowering pH.
Inadequate carb levels or lack/loss of anaerobic conditions may result in pH not being lowered sufficiently to prevent germination of C.botulinum spores.

A good friend up near Lexington, lost 6 or 7 in one swoop. Several aborted, and all were recips.
