Parts of our market area saw intense rainfall and flooding in recent weeks, causing a delay in harvest until the fields can dry out. Other parts saw the exact opposite and have dealt with severe drought for the better part of the growing season.
Both crop situations can result in low moisture levels and these producers will have to work through the unique challenges of harvesting low-moisture corn silage. When it comes to properly harvesting and feeding dry corn silage, it helps to adjust harvest basics - such as kernel processing, chopping height and packing - to achieve a good fermentation.
