For improved digestibility of corn and sorghum silage

Description

BONSILAGE CORN WS ensures a reliable fermentation process for whole plant corn and sorghum silages. The product rapidly lowers the pH level, and then controlled acetic acid formation stabilizes the silage and reduces aerobic dry matter losses. Use BONSILAGE CORN WS to conserve valuable fermentable carbohydrates.

Characteristics

Find detailed product information below.

Mode of action
  • Lactobacillus plantarum quickly lowers the pH level by producing lactic acid in the beginning of the fermentation cycle
  • Lactobacillus buchneri and Lactobacillus brevis release acetic acid to inhibit yeast and mold, which reduces the risk of reheating and the shrinkage that often occurs during feed out
  • Lactobacillus buchneri produces propylene glycol, which is a highly available energy source

Research

In conjunction with ISF and our Gut Hülsenberg agricultural research facility, we conduct extensive ensiling and feeding research and on-farm trials to ensure the highest level of performance from BONSILAGE products. BONSILAGE CORN WS raises the level of acetic acid, which extends the time silage can be used by protecting it from molds and yeasts.
