Silage Making

Essentially silage is 'pickled' grass and the main cost effective feed for ruminants. Silage is usually made from grass crops, including maize, whole-crop and other cereals. It is a nutritious feed for livestock, because the process retains valuable nutrients.

Properly ensiling feed, under the right conditions, preserves a high energy and protein content and inhibits unwanted microorganisms such as Clostridia and yeast. Perstorp’s ProMyr™ silage additives help to ensure a good start to the ensiling process and to produce a storage stable feed.

Perstorp's silage additives improve your bottom line result by reducing dry matter losses, retaining natural feed value which will improve milk yield and quality whilst increasing live weight gain.

NB: In order for the silage additive to work, you must always follow the recommended dosage rates and ensure the dosing equipment is calibrated correctly prior to use. The use of silage additives cannot be expected to overcome adverse weather conditions, poor feeding-out procedures, incorrect dosing rates, poor compaction, poor or inadequate sealing and soil or slurry contamination and is therefore not warranted against these poor practises and conditions. If unsure of applications rates or methods, please seek advice.
