Whatever the challenge – bulky first cut or stemmy fourth; wholecrop wheat or peas and barley; new ley or permanent sward; super early or very late maize, this OptiSile range of silage inoculants will help make great forages and conserve their maximum feed value.
In addition to fermentation enhancing bacteria, where needed, some of them contain enzymes that break down indigestible fibre into available carbohydrates. These are either used as a nutrient source for the silage fermentation or remain available to cows when they eat the preserved forage. Ultimately, the design specification for all these is geared to just one result: Profitable forages for you.
OptiSile bacterial inoculant silage additives
The OptiSile range consists of lactobacillus combinations which are suitable for the treatment of grass silage, wheat, legumes, maize, barley, whole crop and Italian Rye Grass. OptiSile silage additives are suitable in different silage storage systems including clamps, round bales, bags and silos.
A three-strain combination of Lactobacilli developed by Envirosystems is employed in OptiSile Extra. One is the widely used L plantarum, to support a standard lactic acid fermentation. The combination of the other two are proven…
OptiSile inoculants are designed to inhibit spoilage organisms such as listeria and clostridia as well as yeast and mould spores in the early stages of acidification and at the open clamp face and at feed out in the trough.
Mycotoxins are problematic secondary metabolites and are poisonous to ruminants resulting in health problems and costly loss in production and profitability.
OptiSile treatment will defend against yeasts and moulds.
