Nick Ferrant Jr., (right) Agway’s Technical Crops Specialist, has
just told this farmer to harvest TDN and not water!
Nick says - “Would you throw away 25% of the feeding value of
an acre of corn silage? No? Well, that’s exactly what you are doing
when you harvest your silage corn in the milk or soft dough stage.
Corn silage will give us more TDN per acre than any other crop, yet
many farmers lose this advantage by harvesting only 75% of the poten
Keep out of that field until the ears are in the dent stage.
If you have more acres planted than you can harvest in the dent
stage, it shows that you didn’t plan well at planting time.
Next year put in 60% of your acreage in your favorite
variety, 20% in an earlier, and 20% in a later one.
This should allow most of it to be harvested
at the correct stage. Our cows need
lots of water, but it’s cheaper and
easier to supply it in the pipeline
than in the silage.”
