Summary and Implications
Corn Silage and earlage are two common feeds for beef cattle. Both of these feeds can increase beef production per acre as compared to corn grain but require good management from production through feeding to optimize beef production. Little information has been collected about production practices that are being used in Iowa and if there is any correlation to the feeding value of the feeds.
