Harvest Strategies and Forage Quality Monitoring for Corn Silage

A great deal of time is spent on the basics of an optimum corn silage harvest. This time is justified as these steps are critical to a successful harvest, where the decisions made during a very short time period impact the farm's production performance and economics for the upcoming year. These important decisions include harvesting at the proper dry matter, adequate kernel processing, proper length of cut, and proper packing and covering of bunk silos.  The following will cover additional considerations for understanding and managing the forage quality of the crop.  For more information, please visit: https://prodairy.cals.cornell.edu/sites/prodairy.cals.cornell.edu/files/shared/documents/Corn%20Silage%20Harvest.pdf
