Pioneer® brand inoculant

During silage making, bacteria ferment sugars producing acid which preserves the pasture or crop. Nutrient and energy losses occur during silage fermentation so silage is always slightly lower in feed value than the material which was ensiled. The type and number of silage making bacteria present in your pasture or crop will influence the amount of drymatter and nutrients you lose in the ensiling process.
