Produces Fibre-Digesting Enzymes, and Reduces Shrink

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11CFT contains a novel strain of Lactobacillus buchneri to help produce specific fibre-digesting enzymes as it replicates in silage which reduces shrink and improves bunklife.

Stimulate “Front-End” Fermentation

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11CFT also contains a unique silage strain of Lactobacillus plantarum formulated to stimulate “front-end” fermentation efficiency by rapidly dropping pH, helping to retain valuable nutrients.

Allows Enzyme Activity

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11CFT establishes the ideal environment for growth and proliferation for the enzyme-producing L.buchneri, allowing enzymatic activity to be expressed, “pre-digesting” neutral detergent fibre.

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.
