What is in Biotal Buchneri 40788?

Lactobacillus Buchneri NCIMB 40788

Main Features:

  • Reduces heating and spoilage during feedout
  • Breaks down cellulose, making it more accessible to fiber-digesting rumen microbes

Colony Forming Units (CFU):

  • 400,000 CFU/g fresh forage
  • 600,000 CFU/g high moisture corn

Along with Lactobacillus Buchneri NCIMB 40788, Biotal Buchneri 40788 includes high activity enzymes that help direct fermentation and increase fiber digestibility.

Biotal Buchneri 40788 is used for:

  • High moisture corn/earlage/snaplage/baleage
  • Haylages over 35% DM
  • Corn silage above 30% DM
  • Silages to be fed during warmer temperatures
  • Ensiling silage that will be transported or relocated
  • Slower than ideal feedout rates
  • Crops exposed to conditions that cause yeast and
    mold growth in the field

As with all Biotal forae inoculants, Biotal Buchneri 40788 has sown consistent performance through numberous lab and farm trials. This dedication to product efficacy is what makes Biotal the world's premium forage inoculant brand.

Biotal Buchneri 40788 helps achieve improved aerobic stability which leads to:

  • Less spoilage
  • Less heating
  • Less molds

Improved Aerobic Stability:
Biotal Buchneri 40788 treated HMC was significantly more stable after removal from the silo compared to the untreated control.1

Improved TMR Stability:
Treating barley silage with Biotal Buchneri 40788 provided significantly greater aerobic stability. The improvement is stability carried over into the TMR produced using the the treated silage.This improvement in TMR stability using Biotal Buchneri 40788 has been shown in a number of independent studies.4

Increase In Milk Production:
Dairy cows fed Biotal Buchneri 40788 treated alfalfa silage produced 1.8 more pounds of milk per day than untreated controls.3
