St. Louis, Missouri (August 13, 2012)--The 2013 lineup of DEKALB Silage Proven® products provide high-quality feed with improved digestibility for dairy and beef cattle. With industry-leading genetics, their high level of nutritional quality and high-tonnage yield potential help farmers produce more milk per acre and more milk per ton.
Among these top-performing products are DEKALB® Genuity® VT Triple PRO® DKC61-88 brand, which is new to the Silage Proven lineup for 2013, and DEKALB® Genuity® SmartStax® DKC53-45RIB blend brand. Both products give dairy and beef producers the high-performance silage quality they demand and another option for maximizing productivity on their farms.
“DEKALB Silage Proven products are screened to attempt to deliver the highest-yielding and highest nutritional-value products to the marketplace,” says Mark Richhart, DEKALB dairy and silage specialist. “Only products that provide high net energy for lactation and higher tonnage are designated as Silage Proven.”
For higher quality feed, farmers are also encouraged to combine DEKALB Silage Proven products with DEKALB® brand Genuity® Roundup Ready® Alfalfa to get more high quality hay per acre that can lead to higher quality milk products.
Silage Proven corn products also offer growers a broad selection of built-in traits that provide protection against pests like corn rootworms, corn borers and corn earworms, along with tolerance to Roundup® brand agricultural herbicides in a single seed.
