KOFASIL S Heterofermentative bacterial preparation for improving the aerobic stability of silage for animals and biogas plants.
When silage is exposed to air, its quality can deteriorate, as valuable, easily digestible nutrients are broken down by yeasts and moulds. There is also a risk of mycotoxins forming. Signs of the growth of these micro-organisms are an increase in the temperature of the silage and typical discolourations (blue-green, red) in the form of mould nests (hot spots).
This particularly affects well-fermented, high energy maize silage, but silage made of grass and whole crop cereals may also display signs of heating on exposure. Ensiling mistakes such as poor compaction, ensiling forage that has been harvested late, or insufficient wilting increase the risk of such processes. This can be avoided by applying good farming practices and using KOFASIL S.
KOFASIL S contains a specially selected non-GM strain of the lactic acid bacteria Lactobacillus Buchneri. In addition to lactic acid, this also forms a certain amount of acetic acid which inhibits yeasts and moulds, which improves the storage life of silage kept in non-airtight conditions where heating on exposure could occur without the use of additives.
KOFASIL S is recommended for protecting the quality of various types of silage used in animal feed. It is also ideal for producing high-energy, hygienic silage from energy rye and maize and other substrates for biogas production: it promotes high gas yields and helps keep your plant running smoothly.
KOFASIL S - concentrate has to be mixed with water as per the instructions for use on the product to produce 1-2 litres of ready to use solution per tonne of silage crop.
