Corn silage is a very versatile and palatable feed that fits well into many cattle feeding programs. Insufficient rainfall in several areas of the country in recent years has resulted in many additional acres of corn being ensiled due to the low potential grain yield. Harvesting drought-stricken corn silage results in at least partial salvage of the crop. However, many farmers have expressed concern about the feeding value of drought-damaged corn silage and how it can be best incorporated into feedlot rations for optimal performance and maximal economic return.
