10—Lancaster Farming. Saturday, December 13.1969 Rocutting Silage Does Not Pay Recalling com silage to make it moie digestible for livestock docs not pay, according to Di \V R Ilcsscltme, extension dairy specialist at the Umvcisity of Delaware. Increased use of com silage in dairy and beef cattle operations has resulted In substantial re ductions m production costs, he says But it cattle are to achieve maximum production from the crop it has to be mature when harvested. Hesseltine points out, however, that when mature corn is cut for silage, more kernels pass through the animals undigested. “Some dairymen cut silage earlier to help prevent this loss. Others have pui chased equipment to recut the silage after it has been harvested.” Recent field tests in Virginia and New York show that corn silage should be harvested at maturity but recutting to mini mize kernel loss is not practical. In Virginia, researchers found that recutting corn silage lower ed both consumption of the sil age and the fat test of the milk “Recutting did decrease the amount of dry matter excreted as whole kernels, but this did not affect the total dry matter digestibility of the silage,” says Hesseltine. At Cornell University, work ers cut silage at four different stages of maturity, recutting the more mature harvestings with an attachment on the silage blow ei. The silages were then fed to steeis and Holstein cows as the only source of roughage The Cornell researchers note that animals consume more act ual dry matter from later cut silages Recutting takes a lot of power and does not increase the amount of dry matter consumed It does lower the number of whole kernels passing through the animals, but recutting does not improve the total energy value of the silage Our word ‘mistletoe’ comes from a Greek word meaning ‘tiee thief’ It is a parasite, and kills its host in time.
