The specialist for reduced silo ripening time


Our premium inoculant BONSILAGE SPEED ensures a reliable fermentation process for whole plant corn, sorghum, temperate grass and small grain silages as well as high moisture corn and snaplage. After a rapid pH drop, Lb. diolivorans ensures the controlled and rapid formation of acetic acid, which provides a maximum level of protection against reheating. BONSILAGE SPEED improves the digestibility and energy density of the forage. The fast acetic acid formation results in in aerobically stable silages after only a few days of fermentation.

Mode of action
  • Lb. rhamnosus quickly lowers the pH level by producing lactic acid in the beginning of the fermentation cycle
  • Lb. diolivorans rapidly releases acetic acid to inhibit yeast and mold, which reduces the risk of reheating and the shrinkage that can occur during feed out
  • Due to the rapid release of acetic acid from Lb. diolivorans silages are aerobically stable after a very short time of fermentation only

We conduct extensive on-farm research and feeding trials to ensure the highest level of performance from BONSILAGE products. Research trials show that BONSILAGE SPEED rapidly produces acetic acid in the silage, which lowers the number of yeast and thus the risk of reheating during feed out. Due to the unique mode of action of Lb. diolivorans silages treated with BONSILAGE SPEED reach aerobic stability after only 14 days of fermentation.
