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
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
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
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
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.
