However innovative, convenient and time-saving SilageSafe may be, it’s always worth remembering that the silage you take from the clamp – whether after just a few weeks or many months later – will never be as good as what you put in, because losses of digestible dry matter are inevitable.
Good practices in preservation and compaction are key to making great silage and minimising fermentation losses during storage and aerobic losses during feed out. The proven products outlined below are designed to help you retain the maximum feed value in your silage.
Safesil Pro is the ideal treatment for high dry matter silage where aerobic deterioration is a concern. Safesil Pro ensures long-term stability in the open clamp and during feed-out, minimising nutrient loss and mycotoxin formation.
Safesil Challenge is ideal for treating grass, grass/clover, legume and arable silages with DM content below 30%. Its ability to eradicate harmful clostridia and enterobacteria ensures a controlled, effective fermentation in high-buffering, low-sugar and lower dry matter forage.
SilaPactors are the heavyweight answer to making light work of compaction.
Available in a range of widths from 2.1 metres to 4 metres weighing from 2.5 to 6.0 tonnes, a SilaPactor will speed up the compaction process, saving both time and fuel, and can increase dry matter compaction density by up to 40% when compared to conventional tractor rolling.
