While you’re there, click over to see the winners of the second annual Sealpro® Forage Contest. Three feed categories were placed by two independent nutrition consultants: Alfalfa Haylage, Winter Forage, and Corn Silage. Results were based 60% on a Rock River Laboratory, Inc. complete lab analysis, 30% on actual sample inspection, and 10% on drive over shape, face management, and safety from the sampled pile or bunker photo.
“The Sealpro® Forage Contest last year was a huge success, and while we aren’t able to display the entries this year at World Ag Expo, we are excited to congratulate our winners,” said Connie Kuber, Connor Agriscience. “There is always something new to learn about forage, no matter how long you’ve been making it. Every year Mother Nature presents a different harvest scenario. The better prepared we are to meet that challenge through planning, communicating with our harvest crews, and keeping an eye on harvest method, the more dry matter and nutrients we’ll have. Our winners are great examples of that kind of care and attention to detail.”
