Scientific research has established that certain ideal conditions for feed storage and processing will maximize the feed value of crops over time. Ideally, if one harvests a crop at its peak nutritional value, one can preserve virtually all of that value until the crop is fed to livestock. The ideal is achievable if one places the crop in an oxygen-free environment at a moisture level in the 60 to 70 percent range. Once ensiled, a fermentation process begins - the chopped silage respires for a short time thereby raising the temperature to a level between 80 to 100 degrees, which the lactic acid producing bacterial thrive. After approximately three weeks of fermentation, the pH drops to about 4.0, indicating stabilized silage which will remain constant until fed.
Adding lactic acid forming bacteria to your silage is beneficial to fermentation. The airtight environment and Ag-Bag Inoculant helps prevent growth of undesirable bacteria, molds and insects which contribute to storage loss. At the same time it enhances the benefits of cool fermentation. Ag-Bag inoculant is micro encapsulated with a sugar and enzyme coating which protects each bacterium from oxygen. This provides it with immediate nutrients to jump-start the production of valuable lactic acid.
We believe that the features of the Ag-Bag system provide significant operational and economic advantages over conventional storage systems. Some of the features are as follows:
The "3M's of Ag-Bag® Silage" represent documented methods and technology of good silage making. Ensiling has proven to be the most efficient method of storing and preserving the nutrient value of your crops. We invite you to benefit from proven methods and profit-making concepts.
