b'Corn silage is an economical forage option for Alberta producersHigh-quality corn silage is an important component of western Canadian feed rations for beef and dairy producers.Silage corn is one of the most economical forages producers can grow with its potential to produce higher fibrecontent than other feed types. It presents producers an option that delivers it allhigh energy, good digestibilityand high yields in hybrids adapted for growing conditions across the Prairies.Producers can maximize corn silage yield by choosing a hybrid with heat units and maturity ratings suited fortheir area that will allow the grain ear to properly develop. Root and stalk strength, pest resistance and staygreen are also important characteristics to consider. A hybrid with good stay green will allow the plant toremain healthy as it fills, allowing for a wider harvesting window. Harvest silage corn at the right maturity to maximize yield potential. Factors such as cutting height,chop length and kernel processing can influence digestibility.Indicators of a high-quality corn silage are: Dry Matter (DM) 30-40% Acid Detergent Fibre (ADF) 20-33%(percentage forage thats not water)(Percentage of indigestible portion of the fibre)Crude Protein (CP) 7-9%Starch 28% (Levels below 28% usually indicates Neutral Detergent Fibre (NDF) 35-55% (NDF inversesilage has been cut too early or crop is stressed) predictor of intake, as NDF increases, intake decreases)THIS SEED BELONGS HERE Proven Seeds Silage Select TMhybrids are tested and evaluatedspecifically to address the needs of livestock operationsProven Seed Silage Select hybrids are tested and evaluated for specific yield and silage quality parameters.To be considered Silage Select the hybrid must meet specific criteria in the following:B R O O K S , A B Yield Starch digestibilityWater soluble carbohydratesFibre digestibility Milk per tonne Total tract neutral detergent Starch content Crude proteinfibre digestibility Ratings are given for each category based on performance above the mean score. These scores are added togetherfor an aggregate score. Only the best scoring hybrids are given the Proven Seed Silage Select designation.
