Improve profitability with leafy corn silage hybrids. These hybrids produce eight or more leaves above the top ear so you can maximize your silage yield.

 

Strong Agronomics

A reliable and robust crop is essential on a dairy farm. Silage hybrids need good stalks, strong roots and drought and disease resistance.

High Total Plant Yield

A corn silage hybrid should balance high yields of both digestible fiber and starch.

Long Harvest Window

To ensure the best quality silage makes it into the bunker, a hybrid should be slow-drying once it reaches optimal harvest moisture.

High Starch Content

Corn silage needs plenty of energy-rich starch to make milk.

High Starch Digestibility

For maximum availability of starch in the rumen, kernels should break up easily into small particles at harvest and during cow chewing.

High Fiber Digestibility

Dairy producers need a corn plant that has high NDF digestibility and sufficient effective fiber to promote rumination and rumen retention.

Ration Type Adaptability

A silage hybrid needs to be versatile so it can be balanced in various rations to satisfy the nutritional needs of all cow groups on the farm.

Excellent Feed Quality

Silage in the ration must be palatable and promote healthy rumination, while providing the nutrition necessary to keep a herd healthy and productive.
