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.
High dry matter (DM) crops are more prone to aerobic spoilage, especially at feedout. This results in high DM losses, significantly reducing their potential intake and production advantages.
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.
