“Our maize is feeding really well and Optisile Maize has kept the silage stable and cool with very little wastage – even with high dry matter.”

“It is important to feed enough silage in the TMR and not over feed concentrates. Once the diet is set and the herd is achieving the yield expected, challenge the silage by taking out concentrate and replacing with more silage. This way the silage is allowed to express its true potential.”
“All silage costs the same to grow and ensile. It is therefore worth spending a little more on a good inoculant to maintain all the nutrients and protect against spoilage and secondary fermentation – and get as much of the available energy as you can.”
