SILAGE CHOICES

Our silage hybrids are rated based on information obtained from our in-house silage evaluations, independent trials, and originator information. The products here have shown superior silage performance compared to all competitors. We continue to evaluate all options of silage products available to us including leafy genetics, soft endosperm hybrids,low lignin hybrids, and other silage specific hybrids in our effort to provide you with high quality corn silage choices. We have yet to see a product that distinguishes itself from our current offferings. This includes just looking at milk per ton.
