I have an opportunity to purchase (at a great price, some ear corn, about 500 bu., been stored in a corn crib for 2 years. Very dry, but I don't have an exact number as to an exact moisture percentage. I don't have a crib to store it in, but I do have a 1500 bu. grain bin, no fans, solid cement floor. Can I store this ear corn in this bin? Im located in central MN
I will be using this corn to feed to my beef steers. I would like to run it through a grinder/mixer with a coarse screen to give it just a crack. I would add a protein pellet and some molasses and then store it in a feed bin. How long would it store once cracked and mixed?
I'm currently only feeding about a bushel per day, I would like to buy more animals but am struggling to decide if now is a good time to buy or not. Weird cattle market. Many guys telling me that they think prices will fall due to high feed costs.
Thanks for any help that you maybe able to offer
