Q&A: I have a producer in Ohio that wants to fill his silos with corn silage + 10% dry DDG’s. Will that work?

Dr. Galen Erickson, Assistant Professor of Animal Science, Animal Science, University of Nebraska

A:   This will likely work, but we have not specifically tested it.

The concerns are to not make the silage drier than 37% or so. Adding DDGS (90% DM and only 10% water) will dry the silage (that is hopefully less than 35% DM or 65% water) some. You would need to calculate how dry the "mix" is once you know the moisture content of the DDGS and the silage. As silage gets drier, the fermentation is hindered some and you risk spoilage and losses.
