Sampling Guidelines:

  • Collect 3-5 stalks from a representative area within the field (cut at chopper height).
  • Please include with your sample: name, address, phone number, hybrid, relative maturity and planting date. It is very helpful if you have samples already identified.
  • Stalks will be chopped and analyzed for moisture.
  • There is no charge for this program, but we ask that you bring a maximum of 3 samples per farm.
  • Once samples are cut do not delay bringing them to the site so that moisture is not lost.

To monitor corn silage moisture from Sheboygan, Ozaukee & Washington Counties or from around the state go to: http://sheboygan.uwex.edu/ or http://www.uwex.edu/ces/ag/silagedrydown/
