Walter Schroeder, August 1958 High-Moisture Shelled Corn

Livestock farmer Walter Schroeder, 1958.

Back in the late 1950s, livestock farmer Walter Schroeder (second from right) of rural Bloomington Township fattened about 500 head of cattle a year. He used high-moisture shelled corn from his airtight silo, finding such feed “makes more meat per bushel than shelled corn from the crib.”
