Higher Fibre Digestibility for Better Milk Production

Increased Fibre Digestibility for Better Milk Production

If higher milk production is what you’re after, there’s no comparison. Pioneer® brand BMR corn silage offers outstanding fibre digestibility, which leads to higher feed consumption among high producing cows. It’s high-quality silage for better cow performance.

Better Overall Health & Milk Production

  • Feeding high quality, high forage diets can help improve the overall health of a dairy herd. • University of Wisconsin-Madison studies2 show that using BMR versus standard corn silage can increase milk production by 1.5 kgs per day.
  • BMR hybrids have lower levels of undigested fibre (uNDF) than standard corn silage hybrids – a critical attribute for improving forage intake and dairy cow performance.

Higher Digestibility for Peak Performance

Average in fibre digestibility icon
  • BMR hybrids have less lignin content and average 7-percentage points higher 24 hour fibre digestibility than competitor’s non-BMR corn silage.
  • When fed to high producing dairy cows, BMR corn silage can increase dry matter intake which may result in greater milk production. 

Higher Feed Intake

Average in UNDF-240 icon

Dairy cows consume more corn silage when it contains lower levels of undigested fibre (uNDF, 240hr, % DM). Pioneer® brand BMR corn silage products averages 3-percentage points lower in undigested fibre compared to leading competitor’s standard corn silage.
