MAIZE SILAGE

Maize silage is very prone to heating due to high levels of soluble sugars, which are used by undesirable organisms when exposed to air. Try to achieve a dry matter of 30% to optimise digestibility of the plant and starch content.

Suitable products for whole crop treatment depend on the harvested dry mater

 

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 metabolites 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 organiasms and therefore reducing dry matter losses

Improved fibre digestion by the action of enzymes

Reduces the production of mycotoxins which can restrict intake and lead to health issues

Improved rumen digestion by action of digestive enzymes produced by bacillus sp.

 

COOL-STORE XL

High dry matter silage such as maize 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 produces 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. It can also reduce the production of mycotoxins. Digestion is improved due to production of digestive enzymes and mode of action of specific enzymes in COOL-STORE XL.

 

TOP SILE

A unique blend of sulphites and food salts.

Prevents the growth of yeasts and moulds on the top of silage clamps especially on the ramp and shoulders hence reducing the waste. Top-Sile also uses up the oxygen under the sheet encouraging the growth of good lactic bacteria.
