Corn produced at SB&B is currently consumed by livestock in our beef feedlot. Varieties are selected to maximize yield, provide high nutrition, and a kernel with moderate moisture content. In addition to being a cash crop, corn offers rotational crop benefits.
The ideal time to plant corn in North Dakota is late April and early May. Early planting can insure top yields and lower moisture levels at harvest. Corn harvest takes place in late October and early November. With winter approaching fast, completing harvest and getting the crop residue shredded and mixed into the soil is of significant importance for the following year's crop.
