North Dakota Corn Hybrid Trial Results for 2013 - A793
This publication reports the results of corn hybrid trials that were conducted by NDSU research and Extension personnel throughout North Dakota. The hybrids tested were entered voluntarily by the companies that market them, and the management of these trials was financed partially by the entry fee those companies paid. Links to the participating companies are summarized in Table 1. Additional information and data for a given location may be available at www.ag.ndsu.edu/varietytrials/corn. When selecting a hybrid, look at its performance at multiple locations and/or across years if possible.

What is the Value of a Standing Corn Crop for Silage? - EC1343
Corn for silage sometimes is sold standing in the field and farmers frequently ask how to determine a fair price for the standing crop. EC1343 provides some guidelines for estimating the value of a standing corn crop.

Quality Forage: Silage Fermentation and Preservation - AS1254
High-quality silage is achieved when lactic acid is the predominant acid produced because it is the most efficient fermentation acid and will drop the pH of the silage the fastest. The faster the fermentation is completed, the more nutrients will be retained in the silage.

Quality Forage: Stressed or Damaged Crops - AS1256
Stressed crops resulting from unfavorable weather conditions require special management considerations. Yield and quality of frost and drought-damaged crops usually are maximized when harvested as silage.

Quality Forage: Corn Silage Management - AS1253
Silage can be made from many different crops, although the ability to make good silage is limited at times. In North Dakota, corn is a widely used crop for silage. Worldwide, corn silage is one of the most important forges used for livestock.

Quality Forage: Storage, Sampling and Measuring - AS-1255
Using proper sampling techniques is essential to obtain a representative sample for moisture determination. For hay, the procedure used will vary, depending on whether sampling is being done from the windrow, bale or stack.

Handling Liquid Feed Commodities - AS1272
Liquid feeds are useful for conditioning rations, improving palatability, reducing dustiness and providing nutrients to livestock. Many liquid byproduct materials are available for use in beef cattle rations. In addition, a number of commercial liquid supplement products also are available.

Feeding Corn to Beef Cattle - AS1238
Corn commonly is used as a feed grain in beef cattle diets throughout the U.S. However, until recently in many parts of North Dakota and other northern-tier states, feeding corn was less common. With the availability and improvement of shorter-season corn varieties, corn plantings in North Dakota increased nearly five-fold from 1995 to 2012. In 2011, 216 million bushels of corn were produced. This has resulted in more interest in using corn as a feedstuff for beef cattle.

Corn Drying and Storage - AE1119
Corn producers have some control over corn quality through variety selection, timing and care used in harvesting, selection and operation of dryers and conveyors, and storage management.

North Dakota Manure Fertilizer Use Recommendations - NM1629
Multiple years of manure fertilizer use research in ND have shown that manure can be used as a fertilizer but there are management considerations. If the manure is used on short season crops such as wheat, some supplemental nitrogen fertilizer is needed. If used on a longer season crop such as corn, manure can be a complete substitution for commercial fertilizer.
