There have been a total of 19 beef trials with Ecosyl. Five of these were with growing cattle that were fed grass silage with Ecosyl treatment. The results showed on average a significant 15.2% improvement in daily live weight gain.
Using Ecosyl treatment has led to increased intakes in some, but not all, trials. Therefore, it can only partially explain the improvements in animal performance.
Several silage additives were tried, but only Ecosyl had that ability to not only boost silage quality, but to keep it stable as silo pits were opened and used in all seasons.
