    The advantages Masters Choice brings to the farm are: profitable forage and feed production, healthier livestock, and increased milk production. From a nutritionist’s perspective, Masters Choice hybrids deliver a high value to dairy producers by developing and breeding corn hybrids for high milk per ton and milk per acre.
  • Dr. Dave Casper, P.A.S.
    South Dakota State University
    Highly digestible forages are the basis for efficient and profitable milk production.  Masters Choice hybrids provide the highly digestible nutrients for meeting the nutrient requirements of the high producing dairy cow.
  • Nick Mertens
    Staple, MN
    Our digestible starch was always around 75% in the fall. The last two years, planting Masters Choice conventional hybrids, two weeks after chopped our test results are coming back 88-90% digestible starch, and that’s without inoculants.

    We were running short on corn silage this fall. To make our silage stretch we began blending MC6581 that had only been fermenting for 8 days. We soon switched completely to the fresh MC6581 and the cows never missed a beat in production.
  • J. Beary Dairy
    Cambridge Springs, PA
    I was surprised at how well fermented the MC530 was after only a few days in the bag, but I still expected to see a drop in milk production with the fresh silage. However the cows started to come up in production and increased 7 pounds/head/day after they were on the MC530 totally, they even ate the rings of cob.
  • Chad Krzewina
    Crivitz, WI
    We are very happy with our Masters Choice corn silage. Our 400 cows are eating a lot of it and averaging 108 pounds of milk in the tank. I can’t imagine anything working better!
