“Very good tonnage! It’s been a strong hybrid for us for a number of years - very consistent. On good soils it can have top end yield. On more marginal soils, it’s been as good as anything we’ve used. Love the white cob! It’s all about performance. HiDF-3702-9 provides us performance year-in and year-out.”

Robert Krohn From Elkton, MI ON hidf-3702-9

“Really impressed with cob-to-stalk ratio. Lots of tonnage with great quality. Did a side-by-side with a competitive brand and the quality on HiDF-3702 was 350 lbs of milk per ton more than the competitor. The products I have used in the past did not have digestibility and starch levels as the Dairyland did....I’m just really impressed!!!!"
