2016 Corn Silage Variety Trial Results

In 2016 a commitment was made at Cornell to resume corn silage trials on a more limited basis with the hope to expand locations and hybrid numbers in coming years.  Need to give thanks here to folks like Joe Lawrence, Tom Overton and Margaret Smith from PRO-DAIRY, Department of Animal Science and Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics for their time and expertise to get these trials up and running again.

Within the results you will still see silage yield info, but a more intensive effort has been made to translate the forage quality tests of each hybrid into milk production, another and very important measure of performance.

The results and more information are at the link below and a complete report is expected in the coming weeks:
