It is Corn Silage Time – Are You Ready?

The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Team monthly webinar series continues Wednesday, Aug. 18 from 12 noon to 1 p.m., with the focus on corn silage.

The webinar will be led by Luiz Ferraretto who will discuss how to use corn silage to put more milk in the bulk tank and ultimately, more money in dairy producers’ pockets.

Luiz is originally from Brazil, was an Assistant Professor of Livestock Nutrition at the University of Florida from 2016 to 2020 and joined UW-Madison in May of 2020. His research and extension interests are applied ruminant nutrition and management. Ferraretto’s program is focused on understanding and improving starch and fiber utilization by dairy cows, corn silage and high-moisture corn quality and digestibility.

Producers, dairy consultants, and industry reps are encouraged to attend the free webinar live from noon to 1 p.m. on Aug. 18 at Registration is not needed.
