Fermentation — Rate and extent of pH decline and the composition of fermentation acids occurring in silage.

Nutrient Conservation — Retaining more sugar/starch and reducing protein degradation by rapidly reducing silage pH.

Fibre Digestibility — The digestibility of neutral detergent fibre (NDF) by the ruminant animal expressed as a percentage of the total NDF.

Bunklife — Relative heat development compared to ambient temperature. Bunklife considers both how quickly silage begins to heat and the amount of heat generated while remaining above ambient temperature.
