AER customer among winners at World Forage Analysis Superbowl

What goes into growing winning corn silage by the World Dairy Expo standards? Healthy soil? The right seed? Effective fertilizer? A whole lot of knowledge? AgriEnergy products? A combination of all the above?

For Daniel Olson of Olson Farms in Lena, Wisconsin it’s definitely a combination as he strives for the title every year, and this year it paid out, literally. He was awarded $1,500 for producing the best standard corn silage during the 2015 World Forage Analysis Superbowl at the World Dairy Expo. See below.

Daniel used DrammE, SP-1, and K-Sulfate on his winning corn silage.

Daniel used Drammatic “E”, SP-1, and Potassium Sulfate Solution on his winning corn silage.

Daniel beat out 385 entries in seven forage categories, of which 90-95% were conventional entries, with his organic corn silage.  He chose to plant seed from a small seed company, Master’s Choice, and won based on uNDF, undigestible neutral detergent fiber. He also took second place in the Grand Champion Baleage and third place in the Grand Champion Dairy Hay. Needless to say it was a good day for Olson Farms!
