"New" corn variety

We will be planting corn in a few weeks and this year we are switching to an heirloom open-pollinated variety called Boone County White. It dates to the mid 19th century and grows very tall, so it should yield a lot of silage. We would like to use a non-GMO variety, and one we can save seed from. Information we have found has shown that open pollinated corn silage has higher nutritional value than silage from hybrid varieties, so we are looking forward to seeing how it performs. In addition to silage, we will be feeding turnips, peas, and hay.  Our small herd is now up to 10 beeves, and they are looking great.
