Harvesting Corn Silage – 2013

I am very fortunate to be a contributing blogger for AgStar’s Women in Ag Blog. We recently finished harvesting our corn silage for 2013. Check out this video to see how we harvested the 160 acres of corn, packed the corn silage into a pile and then covered the entire pile with an oxygen barrier and plastic. The final step is covering the whole 85′ by 300′ pile with tires. The tires are recycled side walls from semi-trucks. Corn silage is one of the main ingredients in our cow’s diet.
