Scott Jessee - Agriculture Corn Silage: Harvest and Silo Management Corn should be harvested at a moisture content that will ensure good storage in the silo. This moisture content is around 65% (35% dry matter) for both upright and horizontal/bunker silos. Harvesting around 65% moisture will help to promote good packing and minimize losses due to heating. Corn harvested too wet will seep/weep. Seepage running from the silo will remove nut- rients (particularly nitrogen and carbohydrates). Nitrogen is ne- eded in the fermentation process, so the losses of nitrogen through able - Job placement as- sistance. SCHEV certi- by Donna Meade fled.

Dry, over-mature corn is less dilestible, and it contains lower amounts of Vitamins A and E. Silage harvested too dry is hard to pack. With air pockets re- maining in the pile, we are unable to get anaerobic ferment- ation - this will allow mold to develop. Adding water to silage *at the silo is not practical. If com is harvested at 55% moisture (only 10% too dry), it would require 70 gallons of water per ton to significantly impact the moisture level. To get the most from a corn crop, it is critical to get it harvested timely. Harvest timing can be estimated by using the kernel milkline. When the milkline is to 2/3 of the way down the kern61, silage moisture will often be around 65%. Harvest height is usually set around 4 inches. Increasing the cutting height to improve quality is usually not profitable. The in- crease in quality will not be great enough to offset the yield loss. The most important prac- ticees for minimizing silage losses are: Harvest at the correct moisture content Fill the silo quickly and pack it well Get it covered to pre- vent spoilage and weathering e Use 4 mm plastic if covering for less than 3 months, and 6 mm plastic if storing longer To secure plastic, 15 to 20 tires are needed per 100 square feet of area Take a forage sample to determine the nutrients being provided from the feed (this training.

Food Selection and Blanching Choose young, tender vege- tables or well-ripened" fruits for freezing. Tomatoes may be cooked, pureed, or juiced before freezing. Wash, peel and trim away bruised areas. Cut into serving sizes, if desired, before freezing. Blanch all vegetables (except peppers and onions) to preserve quality. To blanch, place pre- pared foods in a metal strainer that fits into a large saucepan. Lower food into boiling water and begin counting the blanch- ing time. Use one gallon of water for eachpound of firm vegetables (about 4 cups) and two gallons of water for each pound of leafy greens (about 8 cups). Don't add more vege- tables than suggested at one time, as larger amounts will lower the temperature of the water. Time and temperature are critical to destroying the enzymes that cause spoilage. Cool the blanched vegetables by removing the vegetables from the boiling water and immed- iately plunging them into ice water until cool. This process prevents the vegetable from overcooking and retains its color and nutrients. Remove the blanched vegetable from the ice water, drain, and dry thoroughly. Loretta Combs Broker R.D. Sneed Owner/Sales Associate " "r It is important tofreeze vege- tables dry because 'extra moist- ure can decrease the quality. Packing and Storing the Food Pack the food in the .ap- propriate freezer container. Al- low inch of headspace for dry* food and 1 to 2 inches for foo(J covered with liquid. After packing, wipe the top of each' package clean. Seal airtight. When filling plastic storage bags, be sure the fruit is co,;,ered by the sugar syrup. Remember to "burp" the bag, to expel all of the air before you seal it. This will preve0t freezer burn and keep the food from drying out. Label the container with the date and the name of the product. Place bags, containers, or jars in the freezer and tore at 0F (18C) or below. Be sure that your freezer temperature re- mains steady. Fluctuation (fre- eze, thaw, refreeze) in tempera- ture will adversely affect the qu-, ality of the food. When con- tainers are removed from the fre- ezer, thaw in the refrigerator or in a pan of cool running water. Lou Gehrig : Big, strong, seemingly indestructible.
