Whether silage is made from a crop grown specifically for silage or from pasture used for grazing, the end product is a critical component of total animal nutrition.

Silage is an important input to animal nutrition rather than simply being a means to store forage for later use.

Silage Conservation
The linkage of silage with nutrition requires an understanding of what should be done to minimise silage quality.

The key factors that determine how well a forage will ensile are:
  • Dry matter content at the time off ensiling
  • Content of water soluble carbohydrates available for fermentation
  • Capacity of the forage to resist the increase in acidity or decrease in pH that is needed to effectively preserve the forage
KEM Fodder Conservation
KEM LAC Silage Inoculant contains three Lactobacilli species-

  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus
KEM Silage Inoculant
Warmer temperatures result in the spring flush of pasture growth which provides the opportunity to conserve your fodder as silage and/or hay.

KEM LAC help ensure good quality silage via a 3-way, all Lactobacilli inoculant which helps to ensure the rapid establishment of the right fermentation.

Lactobacilli acidophilis and Lactobacillus bulgricus ‘kick start’ the silage fermentation and the Lactobacillus plantarum takes over and drives lactic acid production to lower pH.

This helps to ensure the quality of the silage.
