Shredlage™ is a word used to describe a type of corn silage produced when corn is harvested with a modified chopper. But is the process itself new?

John Welsh, Virginia Cooperative Extension Agent, offers up this question in the July/August (2012) Virginia Dairy Pipeline newsletter. He goes on to discuss some of the research involving shredding, such as that conducted at Penn State University during 2000 and 2001 and more recent work at Purdue University.

Read “What’s Up With Shredlage ™?”

University of Wisconsin researchers also have studied Shredlage™. 

Read more about their research findings in this story in the August 2012 issue of Dairy Herd Management.
