Silage Quality is Vital for Profit
Conserved forages are cheap and because of their influence on the extent of farm’s profitability, they are considered to be the most important feed on most farms. Coincidentally, they are also the only feed on the farm that you have a significant level of control over.
It is almost impossible to make good quality silage without some form of intervention. The consequences of bad weather at harvest are for example unavoidable. However, measures should be taken to prevent avoidable consequences like mycotoxins, loss of nutrients, fermentation by bad bugs, aerobic instability etc…
An investment in silage additive is therefore considered to be the smartest, smallest and arguably, the most important investment you will be making every year. That's right, "it has been proven beyond reasonable doubt, that farmers are throwing money away by not using silage additive." I know you've read or heard it a million times but it's true.
But, are you using the right silage additive? It is undeniably a trying proposition when farmers have to choose from dozens of different products that all claim to do the same thing. The fundamental reason to invest in silage inoculants is to improve the feeding value and aerobic stability of the silage at feedout.
Unfortunately, not all silage additives available in the market are equipped to perform these fundamental roles. That is why Integrated Ruminant Nutrition researched the market and endorsed ADDCON’s KOFASIL range of silage additives. All Kofasil range of silage additives have been tried and tested under the UK condition and they all carry the German Agricultural Society (DLG) SEAL OF APPROVAL.
