What is stover? How is it cut and handled?

Stover is corn fodder after the ears are taken off. The best time to cut

the corn for stover is immediately after the kernel becomes dented and

the leaves or blades commence to dry. Immediately after the ears are

taken off, the stalks should be cut and stacked. The size of the shock

depends upon the climate. If it is a foggly climate and stalks are

green, it is better to make a smaller shock, but in the interior valley

where the weather is warm it is best to make large shocks, so that the

stacks will not dry up very rapidly.
