i ordered my seed corn yesterday.grugs?grubs?
i had a hard time hearing the guy so i am not sure of the name.90 day corn.small kernel.
i went with a OP corn for two to save seed for next year and i use a woods bro. one row picker and i don't think it would handle a high yield hybird.this corn has a high sugar content and i was told that the cows do well on the stalks after picking.i plan on grazing the stalks and then sowing rye for winter pasture.combine the rye in the spring,bale the straw, and no-till milo then.
what do you folks think? anyone think there is a better way?
i don't have much ground, so i have to keep something going all year around.

That aught to work Pink Panther. I remember we used to pick field corn for corn on the cob it sure was good . You might want to try a few ears and see if it is any good.

Pink Panther,
I think that's the plan! I wouldn't change a thing. I love to see dual-purpose plantings. I wish these big-time farmers would use their noggins like that.
