Masters Choice floury starch corn featured in American Dairymen
Success with Master’s Choice: Smith MW Farms (Hunter Smith, Newport PA)
Performance in the Field…
Hunter Smith planted Masters Choice 6583 in 2013 in search of a corn hybrid that would yield well on his shale soils and provide the nutritional quality he needs to maintain his high production herd. In the past Hunter had planted BMR corn, but was beginning to see that the yield drag associated with BMR was not sustainable for his farm. He needed tonnage to feed his 400+ cow herd. The MC 6583 yielded well (18-20 tons respectively). In comparison, the BMR had been yielding ~15 tons and even worse than that on really dry years.
Performance in the Barn…
As the cows transitioned into the MCT6583, they saw in increase in milk production by ~3lb/head. Everything else was constant in the ration; the only change was the substitution of the MCT6583 into the ration. In addition to the increase in milk, the cows cleaned up the MCT6583, which greatly reduced the amount of cleanout in the trough. This year Hunter and crew are utilizing multiple Masters Choice varieties (MCT 6581, MCT 4211, MCT 4884, MCT 5324, MCT 5663, MCT 6151 )
