“Shredlage” Forage Units Promoted By Claas
A few years ago FARM SHOW reported a new technology that chops corn as “shredlage” (Vol. 36, No. 1). Claas recently promoted the shredlage concept at the Ohio Farm Science Review, displaying an attachment for forage harvesters that processes corn plants in a different way.
  The idea behind shredlage is to slice the plant in longer pieces and rip the stalk lengthwise to create increased surface area and boost digestibility. Promoters say the result is improved effective fiber, better packing, and a greater exposure to the inner cells of the plant for increased microbial activity.
