WHOLE-CROP SILAGE

Whole crop should be harvested when the grain is at the thick cheesy stage and bottom 1/3 of the plant is green. It is beneficial to put a layer of direct cut grass on top to aid consolidation and reduce gaseous exchange.

Suitable products for whole crop treatment depend on harvested dry matter.

Ultra-Cool

Ultra-Cool unique combination of Heterofermentative bacteria and Bacillus spp, supplying 1 X 106 cfu per gram of treated forage ( 1 million cfu/gram)

Heterofermentative bacteria produce stable acids and metabolytes with a  broad spectrum of activity against moulds and yeasts. If not controlled these can lead to considerable spoilage and loss of nutrients.The rapid drop in pH restricts the growth of detrimental bacteria. Bacteriocins are also produced which are capable of killing many undesirable organisms that are responsible for spoilage. The presence of Bacillus spp. enhances fibre digestion via the production of digestive enzymes.

The hydrolytic enzyme system in Ultra-Cool is designed to breakdown fibre and produce a more open structure to enhance digestion by the rumen microbes.

The inclusion of Bacillus spp has the added benefit of continuing to produce digestive enzymes in the rumen when fed.This increases the utilization of the  cellulytic components of the whole crop.

BENEFITS

Delayed heating at feed out. Favours an efficient fermentation by  killing out undesirable organisms and therefore reducing dry matter loss.Improves fibre digestion by the action of the enzymes within the clamp. Reduces the production of mycotoxins which can restrict intake and lead to health problems. Improved rumen digestion by action of digestive enzymes produced by bacillus spp. NON CORROSIVE

Whole Crop should be harvested when grain is at the thick cheesy stage and bottom 1/3 of the plant is green. It is beneficial to put a layer of direct cut grass on top to aid consolidation and reduce gaseous exchange. The Danish experience has shown the best results are achieved when dry matter ranges between 35-40%

 

Cool-Store XL

Whole crop should be harvested when grain is at the thick cheesy stage and bottom 1/3 of the plant is green. It is beneficial to put a layer of direct cut grass on top to aid consolidation and reduce gaseous exchange.

High dry matter silage is particularly prone to heating especially if it is lower quality (low ‘D’ Value). In situation were high dry matter grass silages are made the use of Cool-store XL would be recommended. Try to aim for a dry matter of 25%-30% as quickly as possible depending on the leafiness of the crop.

COOL-STORE XL contains a unique blend of non corrosive preservative salts used widely in the food industry. These salts are proven to reduce the growth of yeasts and moulds which can cause loss of nutrients and produce mycotoxins.

COOL-STORE XL  reduce the nutrient losses and extend the non-heating life of opened silage often caused by yeasts and moulds which produce heat through  further breakdown of nutrients leading to performance loss. 

The unique enzymes contained in COOL-STORE XL increase the available sugars for bacteria during fermentation and open up the fibre structure to help improve digestion by rumen microbes.  

COOL-STORE XL contains Multiple strains of Bacteria which rapidly drop the pH restricting growth of detrimental bacteria. Some bacteria produce bacteriocins which are capable of killing many of the undesirable organisms that can cause spoilage. The Bacillus spp. also produce digestive enzymes in the rumen once the silage is eaten improving fibre digestion thus increasing the potential performance from the silage

COOL-STORE XL Favours an efficient fermentation by killing out undesirable organisms which increase dry matter losses and waste sugars. Reduce the production of mycotoxins. Improve digestion due to production of digestive enzymes and mode of action of specific enzymes in COOL-STORE XL.
