What crop is most commonly used for silage purposes in the United States?

Now I think corn but I am not sure for the era of the farm questions.

Corn. Although we also use to cut alfalfa and put it in layers with the corn while it was still /green//wet.

In eastern Colorado a lot of sorghum type forage is used like millet hay, sudanex, hay grazer. Some of that goes by different names in different areas

I agree with Corn.
I will say though that now days, for us grass farmers, wrapped baleage works great. I have 65 wrapped bales of clover and oats. The cows really enjoy that stuff!
