Aerobic instability forage heating can have a huge effect on silage palatability and intake. Ultimately, it will affect animal performance and could lead to mycotoxin contamination.
There are now well over 200 fermentation trials on Ecosyl, covering a wide range of crop types, DMs and ensiling conditions. Whichever way you look at the results, Ecosyl has been shown to significantly improve fermentation.
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.
