Lallemand Animal Nutrition's team of forage experts have developed a new Sil-All formulation in the U.S. to best meet the needs of producers.
"The rollout of this new product formulation began in 2013 and is now finalized," said Bob Charley, forage products manager for Lallemand Animal Nutrition. "With the advances in our understanding of the microbiology of ensiling, the new formulation aims to further improve the control of the ensiling fermentation."
In the U.S., Sil-All has undergone continuous product evolution to improve efficacy as more has been discovered about forage microbiology — from the original Sil-All, to Sil-All3x3, then Sil-All4x4 and now a new Sil-All4x4 formulation.
"While Sil-All has always been shown to enhance the fermentation of all forage types, the new formulation includes Pediococcus pentosaceus plus proprietary production and stabilization technologies, that will work together to further improve fermentation efficiency," Charley said.
A faster, more efficient fermentation means a greater preservation of nutrients in forages and, therefore, greater production potential.
