HUBBARD: ASSESSING THE 2022 CORN SILAGE QUALITY

January 10, 2023

The 2022 corn silage harvest has been completed, and this year’s crop is now either in storage or being fed. Dry weather conditions throughout most of the Midwest allowed for an adequate harvest window this year. Since the harvest, there has been much talk about how well this year’s silage has been testing and feeding compared to previous years’ silage. In some areas, it has been feeding well, but in other areas, there have been some challenges. This year’s crop had variable planting dates throughout many parts of the U.S., making for some later harvest dates in some locations. As a result, the overall quality of the 2022 corn silage is still being determined. However, a variable crop has been predicted due to the wide range of growing conditions, from drought to excess rainfall, throughout all geographic locations.
