With autumn fast approaching, we would like to hear your ideas for better corn silage harvesting, storage and feeding.

Some of your ideas may appear in the Corn Silage Tips section that debuts in this month’s Dairy Herd Management. This special section will appear through the January issue.

All ideas and tips submitted by Nov. 15 will be entered in a Corn Silage Tips Contest. We will conduct a drawing from among submitted entries for a range of prizes, including Dairy Herd Management apparel (shirts, jackets, hats), clipboards and savings bonds.

Send your corn silage tips to: Tom Quaife, c/o Vance Publishing Corp., 10901 W. 84th Terr., Lenexa, Kan. 66214. Or, you can send them by e-mail to: tquaife@vancepublishing.com

The silage tips program by Dairy Herd Management will be coordinated with a broader agronomic information series called AgroConnect in Successful Farming magazine and the www.dairyherd.com and www.agriculture.com Web sites.
