5 Ask Why do you grow corn for silage? 5 DOW RESTRICTED - For internal use only

6 WHY PLANT CORN FOR SILAGE 6 DOW RESTRICTED - For DOW internal RESTRICTED use only - For internal use only 6

7 CORN SILAGE SUPPLIES High volume, energy dense, economical feed Fiber for rumen fill and function Energy from both starch and fiber dependent upon digestibility 7 DOW RESTRICTED - For DOW internal RESTRICTED use only - For internal use only 7

8 YES - ENERGY Both starch content and fiber are important The opportunity to convert to milk OR become manure Extremely hybrid dependent It is all about DIGESTIBILITY 8 DOW RESTRICTED - For DOW internal RESTRICTED use only - For internal use only 8

10 CORNPICKER AND MILK WHAT S THE DIFFERENCE? Nutritionists Team Webinar Series September 25, 2015 Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company ( Dow ) or an affiliated company of Dow

11 18

12 First of all What is Milk 2006? Milk 2006 A hybrid-selection spreadsheet using corn silage sample lab analysis values ( the ones we get from CVAS) to calculate Milk/ton and Milk/acre for each hybrid. This is based on hybrids respective energy values and expected Dry Matter Intake predicted both from NDF and Invitro NDFD. 18

13 Why are we adding another report? There are several things we do not like about Milk

14 Kernel Processing in Milk 2006 All identical 104lbs 728lbs 18

15 If a hybrid is drier, it is penalized All identical 109 lbs 763 lbs 18

16 When NDFD is high 18

17 When NDFD is high All identical Milk 2006 thinks NDFD never gets better than 67% In this case, the last hybrid, will be ranked for quality, just after the one with 61%NDFD 18

18 18

19 Unbelievable bias towards starch Mycogen has an NDFD that is 12.7 points higher, with 2.5 points lower starch, and still comes in 2 nd on our OWN PLOT REPORT! 18

20 Underlying Assumptions of Milk 2006 are not valid for many farms: NDFD is not as important as starch is in a silage hybrid Milk 2006 includes NDFD, but it does not adequately account for its effect on feed intake and milk yield on a per cow basis Variation in NDFD of up to 10 percentage units can have a greater effect on profitability than a 20% variation in forage yield amounts Especially for high-producing cows 18

21 Advantages CornPicker can bring to our Plot Reporting We won t be arguing/ trying to explain the bias of Milk 2006 on our own Plot Reports Puts our competitors on the defensive Allows NDFD to shine Based on research out of Dr. Mike Allen s Lab at MSU, one of the most highly respected dairy research scientists in the world 18

22 CornPicker for Silage what is it? 18

23 CornPicker for Corn Silage CornPicker A partial budget method to select corn silage hybrids by comparing Yield and Quality numbers of two hybrids, focusing on the value increased NDFD brings to a farm. Individual farm data and current prices for milk and feedstuffs is incorporated into the program. 18

24 Affecting profitability relative costs Corn Silage Cost of Producing or Buying Storing Feeding Corn Grain 18

25 for Silage Partial budget for the effect of change in corn hybrids Differs from hybrid-selection indices, includes farm and market information that vary over time 18

26 Three worksheets Farm Inputs Herd Inputs Hybrid Inputs 18

30 Harvest Population Dry Matter % DM Yield NDFD NDF Crude Protein For our purposes, each hybrid in a plot will be compared to the plot average 18

31 18

32 18

33 Comparative Rankings Milk 2006 CornPicker NDFD is the primary determinant of hybrid rank, not Starch content 18

34 Silage Plot

35 18

36 Differences in Plot Reporting Current Milk 2006 New CornPicker version CornPicker emphasis on NDFD, will raise BM1 hybrids as well When selling TMF, may choose to highlight the Milk 2006 Report, emphasizing tonnage and starch 18

37 Select the CornPicker Template 18

38 In Summary Milk 2006 Emphasizes Starch Values Tonnage Penalizes drier hybrids CornPicker Emphasizes NDFD Typically will make BMR hybrids shine Starch not as valued Will respond to changes in commodity prices of Soybean meal and Corn as added ingredients 18

39 Questions? Your nutritionist can assist you in beginning to use the CornPicker Report 18
