Corn for silage can be listed on Iowa Hay and Straw Directory
Corn is cut down for silage near Waterloo, Iowa on August 23
DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -
The drought has left many livestock producers short on feed this year. That's why Iowa's Agriculture Secretary is helping change the rules for feed. Bill Northey says this year, farmers can list corn that is available to be chopped for silage on the Iowa Hay and Straw Directory.
Farmers are cutting down their corn crop for silage to feed livestock. The drought has parched fields all across the Midwest and caused losses to farmers all over the region.
Previously, Iowa farmers with Conservation Reserve Program land or Wetland Reserve Program land were allowed to list that for haying on the directory, as well. However, all haying activities on those lands must be completed by Friday, August 31.
