Corn grain is one of the most used energy ingredients for feeding dairy cattle. One method of storing corn grain is in its wet form (25 to 35% moisture, 28% being the optimum level). The storage of corn grain with high moisture has operational advantages such as early harvesting, reduction of losses during harvesting and reduction of transportation and drying costs. In addition, from a nutritional point of view, this preservation method increases rumen degradability of starch.
