2017 Corn Silage Pre-Harvest Meeting ~ Stillwater

August 28, 2017


We will cover optimum harvest timing, kernel processing scoring, particle size, recent research on fiber digestibility, what effect this year's wet weather will have on fiber digestibility, bunker silo packing and optimal fermentation. We'll also discuss late season leaf diseases that always crop up at the end of the season, weed control, and nitrogen management.

Announcements

2017 Corn Silage Trial Information

Many of you have been looking for the 2017 corn silage trial information and preliminary results have been released. The predicted milk yields with the Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS) model will be completed in the coming weeks but wanted to supply you with this preliminary report now.

One reporting difference from last year is that the uNDF 240 is listed as a percent of NDF not of dry matter so the number is larger but the relationship the same: a lower uNDF 240 value indicates better performance.
