Axphast Gold - Model DM - Grass Silage
Treat low DM grass silage with axphast gold® to produce an efficient fermentation, improve intake and forage utilisation as well as minimising effluent. Low DM grass (30%) needs a rapid drop in pH so that nutrients, such as sugar and protein, are preserved. The lower the dry matter, the lower the drop in pH needed to produce a stable silage. When a rapid drop in pH is achieved, it is not only beneficial for nutrient preservation but also for a reduction in the action of anaerobic bacteria that can cause secondary fermentation. Low dry matters can also lead to effluent problems and cause environmental pollution, as well as a loss in potential nutrients within the clamp. A crop specific additive should also contain an enzyme package to breakdown the tougher (hemicellulose) fibre fractions.
