Are you still stuck in the 80s when it comes to silage additives? It’s time to step out of the past and into the present with SiloSolve.
Back in the old days, farmers were relying on basic options like lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and propionic acid bacteria (PAB) cultures, and formic acid to lower the pH as a means of conserving the forage crops. But let’s face it, these outdated methods just weren’t cutting it. They were exacerbating unnecessary waste, not providing the best return on investment, and even contributing to potential harm to cows.
But now, we’ve moved on – we’ve got SiloSolve, the ultimate silage inoculant created by Chr Hansen. This bad boy is like a superhero for your silage, reducing yeasts and moulds by up to 98%, reducing waste, and eliminating nasties that might damage our cows’ productivity and health. Expensive silage – more so if it includes concentrate as TMR – that would otherwise be thrown away can now be eaten and turned into milk, reducing waste and gaining money on enhanced productivity. Some quick maths for you: Silosolve is proven to save up to 5% of precious DM compared to the same untreated silage. At £50 per ton of silage, that 5% saves you £2.50 per ton, which – even after the cost of Silosolve, is a big saving over a 2000 ton clamp!
We’ve seen cows go crazy for Silosolve treated silage over competitors time and again in direct “choice-trials. By reducing nasty, invisible by-products that can be off-putting to cows, Silosolve makes a more palatable silage, which equals a higher intake. And as you may know, a higher intake equals more milk (and more pennies)!
With patented bacteria that have been researched over decades, Silosolve is truly cutting-edge in forage technology, and as purses get tighter, savings are ever more important. SiloSolve boasts improved digestibility too – up to 10% in NDF and 12% in starch. This has a direct positive correlation with milk per cow per day, and the proportion of milk from forage. Protein losses are also mitigated in Silosolve, and, being one of the most expensive things to buy in addition, it makes sense to keep as much in our forage as possible, no?
Outlay for a product or item may often be daunting, but it’s worth calculating the return on your investment before just sticking with “old faithful” because it’s cheap, or worse still, because your dad used it!
So, don’t be left behind, step out of the 80s with Silosolve and see the difference it can make for your silage, cows, and your bottom line.
