Evaluation of dehydrated corn silage for lactating dairy cows

Dehydrated corn silage is produced by drying corn silage to a moisture content of approximately 10%. It is being exported to Japan to be used as a forage for dairy cows, and its market is expected to expand in the future. However, its feeding values have not been studied. The objective of the proposed project is to determine nutritional values of dehydrated corn silage for dairy cows. The intern is an international graduate student from Japan and fluent in Japanese, and she will work with Barr-Ag staff to disseminate research outcomes to dairy producers in Japan, end-users of the dehydrated corn silage.
