 **This article originally appeared in Progressive Dairy Canada, Issue 1: January 2022**

The dry period is essential for dairy cows, to allow for regeneration of milk secreting tissue and prepare the udder for optimal success in the next lactation. This period can also be very stressful on the animal due to social, physiological, and nutritional changes making it increasingly important to pay close attention during this time.

NNYADP RESEARCH RESULTS

Corn processing research reveals differences between vitreous-type and floury-type hybrids. Data in the 2021 NNYADP project report on "Corn Silage Soluble Starch as Influenced by Kernel Processing Score (KPS) and Kernel Type" shows that processing of the floury hybrid increased starch digestibility and the soluble starch pool of corn silage despite a lower-than-desired KPS. This project was among the first to utilize the CVAS Soluble Starch Analysis. Read the details online at https://nnyagdev.org/index.php/2021-nnyadp-projects
