Subject: Amish corn harvesting


VT
When the Amish harvest corn with corn binders and put them up into shocks What do they do with the shocks after they are dried? I know some is chopped for silage. I was wondering if any was stored dry and how?

Here the Amish cut corn and bind it, load it on the wagon then chopper is at the silage blower combo unit I would guess. it fills the bags or blow it into silos or Harvestores.

Around here they put in shocks. Then later on when the shocks are dry they use a corn thrasher . The cobs go in a wagon and they blow the stalks in a pile for beding.
