Kentucky Color: Silage chopping in Southern Kentucky

Click on headline for Kentucky Color/silage chopping with photo

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

Silage chopping time in Southern Kentucky is a sure sign of "Autumn upon us".Feeding livestock is not as simple as feeding folks. If we want something to eat in January, we just head off to the local grocery or diner and chow down.

Not so with livestock for if they are to eat in January there would need to have been some serious preparations made during the previous growing season. -BILLY JOE FUDGE
