This summer’s drought conditions mean dairy producers in several parts of the country are facing big challenges in producing corn silage from a nutritional, as well as profitability standpoint. The Penn State Extension Dairy Team and Crop Management Extension Group have created a number of resources to help dairy farmers manage the challenges of this year’s corn silage yield.

Resources include guidelines for managing a drought-stunted corn crop, information on feeding droughtstricken corn silage, recommendations for maintaining profitability when corn silage is low in quantity and quality, a spreadsheet that calculates pricing for purchased corn, plus much more.
