Why should I use Silage Additives

Take control of your Silage

Our Magniva range (formerly Biotal) offers farmers the oppurtunity to take control of their silage quality


For farmers aiming to make high-quality silage, the inclusion of an additive can significantly help improve silage fermentation and quality. This is important as increasing silage quality will lead to a higher level of production on beef and dairy farms.

Taking a structured approach to grass silage making will improve forage quality, boosting milk from forage and taking control of costs.

If we are serious about producing more from forage, then we have to increase the quantities of high quality forage fed and ensure less is wasted. This will mean changing our whole approach to making grass silage because year in year out, irrespective of weather conditions, grass silage analysis remains stubbornly around 10.5MJ when it is possible to make silage consistently above 11MJ, and a target of 11.5MJ is perfectly achievable.
