Extension Calling: advice for the farm, garden, and home

Apr 5, 2024

Following are Flood Recovery tips from the W.V.U. Extension Service.

Until tested, flooded feeds should be considered harmful to animals.  After a flood, wet feed and grain will begin to heat and mold very quickly, leading to spoilage, mycotoxins, and potential spontaneous combustion.  Remove unaffected grain and bales immediately and store them separately; moisture will quickly spread. 


Flooded seed grain, hay, and silage are likely a complete loss.  When in doubt, don’t risk it, throw it out!
