ADDITIVES FOR MAIZE AND WHOLECROP CEREAL SILAGES
Maize and Wholecrop cereal silages are prone to mould growth and heating in the trough or at the clamp face when the crop is fed.
Heating uses energy, reducing the feed value of the crop by up to 25%, and moulds can produce micotoxins which can reduce animal output.
ACT offers three options:
Silo Action Maize is an advanced biological additive which keeps maize cool and stable and is ideal when maize is used for summer buffer feeding. Silo Action Maize applies 1 million bacteria per gram of maize which produce a range of acid which control moulds and yeasts. The face remains cool once opened. Treated maize will also improve animal performance at feed out. Avaialble as conventional 2 litres/tonne or ULV application.
Coolsile is a preservative which will inhibit moulds and yeasts and will therefore reduce heating. Coolsile is ideal to ‘seal the clamp’ before sheeting @ 0.25L per metre squared.
Coolsile treated maize silage can be fed soon after sealing the clamp. Available in 25L, 200L and 1000L IBC.
Silo Action Wholecrop
Wholecrop it is prone to aerobic spoilage at feed out if not treated with an effective additive. Silo Action Wholecrop uses one million hetrofermtative bacteria per gram of wholecrop which produce a range of acids to control spoilage organisms.
This produces a cool, stable, well fermented Wholecrop Silage giving you increased animal performance.
Silo Action Wholecrop can be used in dry matters from 30-75% and keeps the face cool and stable for up to 5 days.
Available as conventional 2 Litres/tonne or ULV formulation.
