Registered Product Claims

  • Reduces heating at feeding
  • Reduces dry matter loss at feeding
  • Reduces dry matter loss during ensiling

Enhances Fermentation

Sila-Bac® brand 11G22 grass/cereal silage inoculant contains next-generation Lactobacillus buchneri to enhance fermentation in grass and whole plant cereal silage and deliver improved fermentation with a fermentation acid profile that minimizes aerobic dry matter losses. 11G22 can be used in grass and whole plant cereals ensiled at the proper maturity in upright, bunker or bag silos and at a dry matter between 30 percent and 42 percent.

Improves Silage Quality and Animal Performance

Sila-Bac® brand 11G22 grass/cereal silage inoculant offers improved silage quality by providing a low terminal pH and desirable volatile fatty acid (VFA) profile for decreased fermentation loss and enhanced aerobic stability, and is formulated to improve animal performance.

Reduces Shrink Loss in Grass Silage

Sila-Bac® brand 11G22 grass/cereal silage inoculant reduces shrink losses during feed by more than 3 percent when compared to a control group. It also remains much cooler for longer periods of time when exposed to air.

*Rapid React® aerobic stability† technology

† Improved aerobic stability and reduced heating is relative to untreated silage. Actual results may vary. The effect of any silage inoculant is dependent upon management at harvest, storage and feedout. Factors such as moisture, maturity, chop length and compaction will determine inoculant efficacy.

IMPORTANT: Information and ratings are based on relative comparisons with other Sila-Bac® brand forage additives within each specific crop, not competitive products. Information and ratings are assigned by Pioneer Forage Additive Research, based on average performance across area of use under normal conditions, over a wide range of both environment and management conditions, and may not predict future results. Product responses are variable and subject to any number of environmental and management conditions.

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.
