Pioneer Hi-Bred Forage Forum Podcast Smooth transition to a new feed crop starts with analysis per back-to-basics guidelines. For example, separate the evaluations between the grass portion of your corn and the high- moisture grain. Open your mind, though, to new strategies, advises Dr. Bill Mahanna, coordinator of global nutritional sciences for Pioneer Hi-Bred. New testing methods are providing valuable information on degree of kernel damage, as well as starch and fiber digestibility. These refined tools can also account for variability due to hybrids and moisture content.
