Breakthrough Slashes $7 Corn Over Half for Cattle Feeders
U.S. Ag, LLC of Luthersville, GA has the attention of cattle feeders and dairymen industry wide with the creation of a revolutionary new formula that allows producers to put up corn earlage as silage in the high moisture range without spoilage, rot or bad fermentation. The product, called Sila-Max Earlage Formula, is proving itself in cattle operations nationwide by cutting feed costs up to 50% or more.
Carl Schneider, president of U.S. Ag, says, “With the cash price of corn topping $7.00 per bushel maximizing weight gains or milk production has become critical. That is why smart feeding practices are so important.”
Understanding how Sila-Max Earlage Formula can reduce feed costs and maximize cash returns can be demonstrated by this example: 200 bushel per acre corn at $7.00 per bushel is worth $1,400. That same acre of corn harvested as earlage uses the whole ear; shuck, cob and grain – and produces approximately 490 bushels of earlage. Those 490 bushels at $7.00 are worth $3,430 or $2,030 per acre more than just corn.
