Early cornstalks have more protein and energy than later stalks.
"With no more yield potential to gain and fairly dry grain, consider harvesting corn early to get some stalks and provide respite for your pastures," advises Bruce Anderson, University of Nebraska-Lincoln forage specialist.
To give your pastures a break, consider combining your dryland corn a little early and then moving the cows to stalks.
Early stalks usually have more protein and energy than late stalks so they can put some condition on your cows while also relieving your pastures, according to Anderson.
