I run my corn head as low as the points will allow me without running them on the ground. That way, if a stalk is down and I see it coming I can get right under it. Amount of stalk going through your machine is not determined by how high you run the corn head but by how tight you have your deck plates. Mike

I agree with Mike, sometimes there's some low ears you can't always see, stalk height is more related to moisture of the stalk and weather conditions, I run a Massey head and sometimes it grinds them off a foot off the ground and other times it leaves them standing like a corn picker, we often see a difference from running at night versus during the day, I sometimes no-till beans so longer is fine or I can make a pass with the stalk chopper and they are cut off 4-6 inches if I plan on tilling

Same here. I don't have a header with the little individual rotary choppers, but the "knife" rolls do an amazing job on anything that goes down through them.
