Good quality silage counts

IMAGO / Martin Wagner

Alltech is introducing a new range of high-quality silage inoculants at the show. This improves the quality of silage and increases feed yield. The company will also provide information on how to use anaerobic digestion, for example.

Alltech's team of experts aims to inform visitors about the following topics in particular:

- Egalis™ is a new range of high-quality silage inoculants from Alltech that maximize nutrient quality and reduce dry matter loss. That means more silage to feed, better silage to feed, and less worry about wasting forage. Egalis controls and promotes fermentation of forage through the use of highly efficient homolactic bacteria and elements that inhibit fungal growth.

The Egalis range of silage inoculants available in Europe includes:

- Egalis™ Ferment

o Egalis Ferment is suitable for all forages and efficiently and rapidly drives fermentation to a stable final pH. It consists of Lactiplantibacillus plantarum and Pediococcus pentosaceus, which work synergistically to rapidly lower pH to the required final pH, regardless of dry matter content or buffering capacity of the feed. Benefits include maximizing nutrient protection, reducing dry matter loss and allowing more and better silage to be fed.

- Egalis™ Rapid

o Egalis Rapid is specifically formulated for all types of corn, grain and sorghum silages. It promotes lactic acid fermentation while maintaining dry matter, digestibility and palatability. It was formulated with the very fast-growing Pediococcus pentosaceus and Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus. Benefits include protecting more dry matter, promoting digestibility in finished silage and optimizing dairy and beef cattle efficiency.

- Egalis™ Stability

o Egalis Stability is suitable for all forage types, especially when heated by aerobically loaded silages or silages with high dry matter content. It inhibits yeast and mold growth and improves silage stability during feeding. It was formulated using Lactiplantibacillus plantarum and Pediococcus pentosaceus in combination with potassium sorbate, which is a strong fungicide. Benefits include keeping silage cooler in the bunker, total mixed ration (TMR) and feedlot, protecting more dry matter and promoting digestibility and energy content for the animal.

- Founded in 1978, KEENAN is a recognized leader in sustainable and profitable agricultural solutions focused on maximizing feed efficiency. KEENAN provides precision feeding technology to optimally mix and prepare feeds to maximize animal performance.

- Anaerobic Digestion (AD): With fossil fuels rapidly running out, anaerobic digestion is quickly becoming an alternative source of economical and renewable energy. With more than 40 years of experience fermenting yeast for animal health, this is an exciting opportunity for Alltech to share its expertise.
