Delayed planting, lack of growing degree-days, drought, hail or insect damage, or early frost can all result in immature corn at harvest. Depending upon the degree of immaturity, harvesting corn as silage, earlage, or snaplage may result in greater crop revenue than harvesting as high-moisture or dry-shelled corn. This fact sheet summarizes typical corn nutrient values with varying harvest, storage, or processing methods. Pricing methods and considerations are also described that may serve corn crop owners and livestock producers as a basis to enter value negotiations.
