CLAAS Talks SHREDLAGE® on Rural America Live

RFD-TV’s Rural America LIVE recently put CLAAS center stage with a 60-minute live, call-in show as the host sat down with CLAAS Product Manager, Matt Jaynes and Roger Olson, a dairy nutritionist and true innovator in corn silage technology.

The topic of conversation – SHREDLAGE®.

“Anytime you can advance the efficiency of production by intensifying machine performance without losing precision is a sure win for optimizing the production of your herd,” stated Jaynes.

Invented by North American dairy nutritionists Ross Dale and Roger Olson, SHREDLAGE is a longer cut corn silage that features intensively crushed kernels and “shredded” material that provide greater nutritional benefits to dairy and beef cattle. The patented process is available exclusively for the JAGUAR forage harvester. SHREDLAGE is made using longer cut corn silage and specially designed rolls that intensively crush corn kernels while shredding the rest of the plant. A number of university studies prove that SHREDLAGE supports greater milk production and improved rumination in cattle with superior packing density at the silage pile.

Later in the program, Matt and Roger were joined by University of Nebraska Associate Professor of Animal Science, Karla Wilke, PhD, who explained that in the study she conducted, beef cattle fed 9% SHREDLAGE as part of their diet experienced a 7.4% greater feed-to-gain ratio and 5.4% better average daily gain than feed containing 14% conventionally chopped and processed corn silage.
