"I believe chopping corn silage is the most efficent way to harvest the most calories per acre of farm ground.  In central Illinois we need to be prepared for an extended feeding season by having a substantial amount of stored forages.  It makes me comfortable to know that I can rely on the Byers to accomodate our specific needs and to get the job done.  We can put up the majority of our winter feed in a matter of two days of chopping.  We now harvest 1,200 tons in the time we used to spend just filling our one upright silo.  Bottom line - the Byers' crews are fast, efficient, and dependable."
