Chopping Silage for Cattle Feed

Is what we did today. When you harvest corn, you only keep the kernels. When you chop silage, you take the entire plant. The chopper does what it sounds like. We ran three wagons, and there was a guy running a dozer packing the pile. You have to pack the pile to make sure that the silage doesn't spoil. We'll feed this to our cattle until March or so, when they will go to market.
