Serious about making more milk from forage? Do you really want some of the hard work and expense you’ve put into growing a nutritious forage maize crop go to waste? Because it easily can in the clamp. And once losses occur, they’re irreversible!
Latest research shows that treating your multi cut silage with a proven silage additive, Ecosyl, results in production of a larger amount of more nutritious and palatable silage.
