Unleashing the value of your Grass Silage

Unleashing the value of your Grass Silage

It is very difficult to predict how the forage season is going to play out, which means that the challenges experienced during the silage making process can change year-on-year.

It is very difficult to predict how the forage season is going to play out, which means that the challenges experienced during the silage making process can change year-on-year. Biotal have a range of both crop and condition specific inoculants which are designed to help farmers overcome all dry matter challenges (something that cannot be achieved by a "one inoculant fits all approach").

For first cut, a rapid acidification is vital to stabilise the silage and reduce the dry matter and protein losses that are caused by spoilage organisms that operate at higher pH levels. For farmers this maximises preservation and quality and over all controls the individual clamp face at feed out.

The Biotal grass range will use acidifying and anti-fungal bacterial technologies to tailor products that are suitable for every season. They also use a patented enzyme package which will boost sugar levels in low sugar grasses and increase NDF digestibility levels.

Unlike most other companies who rely on third parties, Biotal has a wealth of experience in the manufacture of bacteria and all of the products are produced in-house. This means that we are fully in control of the quality from start to finish and only the best products will be reaching farm. Brothers Daniel and David Drum of Delvin, Co. Westmeath, say “We have used other products available on the market but nothing seems comparable to Biotal inoculants and backup service available from Specialist Nutrition”.

Looking then at dryer second cuts, aerobic stability during feed-out is a big concern due to the yeast species that cause heating and dry matter losses. Axccol is the only additive that guarantees, that dry silage wont heat and is made with this purpose in mind. Axcool is also the product of choice for baled silage with some of the largest baled silage customers in Ireland using it
