Forage quality is one of the most important elements of good ruminant feeding programs. Even though forage is the least expensive on-farm source of feed for ruminant animals, poor quality forage – forage that’s been spoiled or otherwise damaged – can end up costing producers more money in protein and energy supplementation costs as well as reduced animal performance and poor feed efficiency. As hay dries, significant leaf loss occurs, resulting in lost hay volume and reduced hay quality. Culbac Hay is a unique fermentation preservative specifically formulated for high-moisture baling, that results in higher quality hay.
Culbac Hay is an all-natural preservative and prebiotic treatment for high-moisture baling. It’s a unique microbial fermentation product, available in dry and liquid formulations, that’s made specifically to inhibit mold growth as hay dries, resulting in higher quality hay.
High quality hay is an important forage component for efficient growth and performance in ruminant diets, because higher quality hay can reduce protein and energy supplementation costs, and help improve animal performance overall. Culbac Hay allows baling at a higher level of moisture, to produce forage that is greener, softer and higher in crude protein and Relative Feed Value (RFV).
