Benefits of processing
The benefits of processed corn silage can easily outweigh the
investment. Reports from dairy farmers who have already used a
prototype model report increased milk production of two to four
pounds per cow per day. Theses results are confirmed by a recent
Washington State University study that show average responses of
two to three pounds.

• How much forage do you lose
from deer damage? Some recent stu
dies from the Penn State farms suggest
that you can lose approximately 1,660
pounds of DM when deer graze pure
alfalfa stands. They also found that
deer will graze less when there is
some orchardgrass mixed with the al

box full of haylage 18% (aster than the closest competitive
blower and 25% faster than one of the so called ‘leaders
Gehl s secret is the twin spinner delivery system and the twin
