Bacterial inoculant silage additives

Whatever the challenge – bulky first cut or stemmy fourth; wholecrop wheat or peas and barley; new ley or permanent sward; super early or very late maize, this Opti-range of silage inoculants will help make great forages and conserve their maximum feed value.

In addition to fermentation enhancing bacteria, where needed, some of them contain enzymes that break down indigestible fibre into available carbohydrates. These are either used as a nutrient source for the silage fermentation or remain available to cows when they eat the preserved forage. Ultimately, the design specification for all these is geared to just one result: Profitable forages for you.
