Mike Hutjens, University of Illinois extension dairy specialist, suggests three scenarios for fall forage harvesting.
“We have plenty of late-planted corn and soybeans, which could be nipped by an early frost,” says Mike Hutjens. “It is important that dairy producers understand the alternatives and strategies should this occur.”
One scenario involves late-harvesting corn silage, weighing differences between yield (tons of dry matter per acre) and starch content.
