Cutting Corn For Silage





What is the best time to cut corn for the silo? What length is it cut?

Is water put on it when it is put in the silo?



The best time to cut corn for the silo is just as the kernels are

beginning to glaze. It is cut with a proper ensilage cutter into half or

three-quarter inch lengths. No water is used, unless the corn should be

unusually dry, with shriveled leaves; in that case, the use of water to

compensate for the loss of moisture in the stalks and leaves is

desirable.
