SILAGEFIRST® SEED LINE DELIVERS

The SilageFirst® seed line of products from CROPLAN® seed is specifically designed for high-producing dairy and beef cattle. There are three types of SilageFirst® hybrids.

FLOURY-LEAFY HYBRIDS

· At feedout, floury-leafy products effectively bridge the gap between the previous year’s corn silage pile and the current year’s feed.

· Leafy and floury-leafy hybrids may not contain a high level of total starch, but have a softer kernel texture that is easily broken during the chopping, storage and chewing process. This allows starch to be readily digested for more available energy.

HIGH-ENERGY/HIGH-TONNAGE HYBRIDS

· These hybrids have more flexibility in harvest and feedout as grain or high-energy/high-tonnage silage when used in combination with leafy and floury-leafy hybrids.

· These are appropriate for feeding after the 120+ day post-ensiling period, when they reach optimum starch and fiber digestibility.

LEAFY HYBRIDS

· Leafy stalks are thicker and more digestible, with larger ears to produce more energy.
