Relentlessly Dedicated To You

HIGHER INCOME OVER FEED COST (IOFC)
STARTS WITH FIBER DIGESTIBILITY

Higher fiber digestibility gives your cows the potential for greater dry matter intake (DMI), more milk production and, ultimately, profitability. You can point your herd toward improved IOFC and return on investment (ROI) with Mycogen® brand bm3 BMR silage hybrids.

GET HIGHER FIBER DIGESTIBILITY
AND MORE MILK WITH BM3 BMR

Brown midrib (BMR) hybrids are named for a naturally occurring gene that reduces lignin in the cornstalk to improve fiber digestibility and DMI.
