Casler, George L.; Lazarus, William F.
A substantial number of New York dairy and other livestock farmers purchase grain in various forms for livestock feed. Some of these farmers can use high moisture corn as part of their feeding programs, Some New York growers can tap this market for high moisture corn, thereby avoiding drying costs and perhaps escape the shrink that occurs in addition to water loss to dry corn to 15.5% moisture. This material is an update of A.E. Extension 77-26, "Buying and Selling High Moisture Shelled and Ear Corn," by George L. Casler. It has been prepared to aid corn growers and livestock feeders in the sale and purchase of high moisture shelled corn and high moisture ear corn. Tables land 2 refer to shelled cornTables 3 and 4 refer to ear corn.
