Maintain Nutritional Value with CHR Hansen Silage Inoculants

Ensiled forages account for the majority of most dairy rations around the world. The main purpose for feeding ensiled forages is to preserve and recover organic dry matter, while retaining nutritional value and palatability.

Proper or improved silage management can have a significant impact on the overall profitability of the dairy. One way to do this is to use a silage inoculant.

Silage inoculants from CHR Hansen facilitate control of the fermentation process and help maintain a high nutritional value of the ensiled forage - features which ultimately translate into improved animal performance and higher return on investment.

The bacterial silage inoculants rapidly establish an anaerobic environment, preventing spoilage and lowering production costs. 
Benefits of CHR Hansen silage inoculants include:

  • Controls the fermentation process and helps maintain high nutritional value of your ensiled forage 
  • Reduces dry matter loss by lowering pH faster 
  • Lowered silage pH improves nutrient stabilization 
  • Reduces heating on silage improving feeding quality and bunk life
