A corn silage moisture sampling day has been added on to the original Marinette – Oconto – Shawano Counties’ schedule by Crops/Soils Educator Scott Reuss. This opportunity will take place Wednesday, September 28 at the times and locations listed below.
Farms should collect representative samples from fields and bring 3-6 stalks for each sample. Samples can be brought in for any type of corn product: whole plant silage, snaplage, high moisture corn, or other. Sample analysis is offered free for the first 5 samples per farm, with funding provided by the Shawano County Forage Council and other sources.
