Specialist Nutrition

Silage Additive

Maximise the value of home-grown forage

Let’s start with getting what you have right and only then supplement any nutritional gap with more expensive bought-in forage.


Ensiled forages represent the largest part of most ruminants' daily intake, and the quality of silage directly affects animal nutrition, well-being and costs.


Improve the quality of your silage and maximise the value of your on-farm forage

Quality ranges from 58% to 78% dry matter digestibility (DMD) nationally, but average quality remains poor at around 65% DMD.

Producing quality silage consistently requires attention to detail with pre-cut testing, harvest, the use of forage inoculants, ensiling, covering, sealing, and feed out management.


Silage inoculant can help preserve the nutritional value of silage and minimise waste through spoilage.

Resulting in:

Better silage

More retained nutrients

Less purchased feed required



Using MAGNIVA Platinum Additive provides you with the flexibility to open silage clamps after 15 days

Improves aerobic stability after only 15 days of fermentation enabling early opening — while significantly increasing longer-term stability

Lowers pH quickly

Improves feed quality, palatability and intake through significantly reduced mould and
yeast levels


Silage - Pre-cut silage testing kit


New Magniva Silage inoculants contain a patented combination of bacteria combined with enzymes to deliver outstanding results. Achieving the best possible fermentation with Magniva crop and condition-specific inoculants help minimise the losses which cut feed energy before silage reaches your cows

Cutting both invisible and visible clamp losses is an essential part of feeding more of what you grow.

Silage is the most important conserved forage on the farm. Making the most of your silage quality has a huge effect on your farms profitability.


Increasing silage quality will improve forage quality, boost production, reduce waste and manage costs.

Silage inoculant can preserve the nutritional value of silage and minimise waste through spoilage.

If you can increase the ME of your silage by 1 MJ, this can produce up to 4L extra of milk, depending on the feeding rate.


The controlled microbial fermentation of forages helps to preserve their nutritional value all year round.

There are two critical points in silage management when trying to achieve optimal silage quality:

1. At the time of ensiling, the main objective is to achieve rapid acidification for maximum recovery of nutrients and minimal dry matter losses.

2. At feed out, the challenge is to ensure good aerobic stability to minimise nutrient and dry matter losses through heating and limit the growth of spoilage micro-organisms, such as yeasts and moulds.


Magniva has developed a range of silage additives to address the specific challenges faced in each crop at ensiling.

By choosing the right additive, silage producers can ensure optimal preservation of dry matter and the nutritional value of their silage crops from the field to feed out, optimising performance and animal efficiency.
