Using the right amount of bacteria can drive rapid and efficient ensiling fermentation. These “fermentation aids” speed the pH drop and are applied at a minimum of 100,000 CFUs per gram of forage. But what is a CFU?
Rain during harvest and filling can be exasperating, especially after you’ve probably spent time carefully determining your forage’s moisture content. Here’s how weather events can affect both quality and yield.
About half of your total yield comes from the first cut of alfalfa. We’ve got tips on when to cut, what to watch for in the plant, and what more and more producers are doing to get their forage out of the field quicker
Some heating is to be expected as a result of fermentation processes that occur during ensiling. However, if too much oxygen remains, aerobic microorganisms grow, which can cause heating and DM and nutrients losses.
