Kentucky Commissioner Warns Against Drought-stricken Silage
Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer is warning livestock producers and corn growers to take steps to avoid harming livestock by feeding them drought-stricken corn silage.
Comer says with Kentucky's corn crop and pastures suffering from little rain, growers are considering chopping their corn into silage to salvage some value. He says drought-stricken corn silage could contain toxic levels of nitrogen, which could be fatal if fed to livestock. He says farmers who have federal crop insurance should check with their adjusters before making any big decisions.
