Corn Harvest Silage Strategy

  • Tuesday, September 3, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

There is one chance to harvest the forage that will be a major component of a herd's feed needs. Finding success during this dynamic process involves mapping out a flexible strategy that considers changing crop and weather conditions. 

The 2019 season adds additional challenges to this process as we will be dealing with a very wide planting window and the prospect for immature corn at harvest. 

Topics for discussion: 

  • Whole Plant Dry Matter and Mapping out Harvest Sequence 
  • Dealing with immature forages
  • Strategies for successful ensiling
  • Considerations for where to store crops of different qualities
  • Dealing with the aftermath of 2019
