2018 Corn Silage Pre-Harvest Meeting

  • Thursday, August 30, 2018, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

With continued low milk prices, getting the biggest bang for your buck out of your home-grown corn
silage can help you get improved performance from your herd while also lowering dependence on
purchased feed. Plan to attend one of the following on-farm Corn Silage Pre-Harvest meeings to get
up to speed on the latest research-backed strategies you can put to work on your dairy.
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.
While there is no charge for attending, we ask that you pre-register so we can be ready at each
location and can contact you in the unlikely event of cancellation or rescheduling. Deadline to register is the day before each event.
There are several dates and locations to choose from!
