New partnership on silage inoculants

Lallemand Animal Nutrition North America and Mycogen have entered into a distribution agreement for Biotal Forage Inoculants in Ontario.

Biotal® Forage Inoculants combine proprietary strains of lactic acid bacteria with enzymes for fast efficient ensiling and aerobic stability.

Silage is the largest part of the daily intake of most ruminants so its quality plays an important part in animal performance. Heating results in energy losses, reduced palatability and intakes. Energy losses are due to the consumption of sugars and lactic acid by yeasts. This causes the pH to rise, creating ideal conditions for mould development, causing greater energy and DM losses. Moreover, some moulds produce mycotoxins with potential negative consequences on animal health and performance.

Biotal Forage Inoculants are a management tool to help producers prevent heating and spoilage in their silages and also to minimize risks from mould growth.
