Key Benefits of Sila-Bac® Brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11GFT

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11GFT is a revolutionary patented grass and cereal silage product that contains a novel strain of Lactobacillus buchneri and Lactobacillus plantarum which produces specific fibre-digesting enzymes and stimulates “front end” fermentation efficiency.

Registered Product Claims

  • Improves acid detergent fibre (ADF) digestibility
  • Improves neutral detergent fibre (NDF) digestibility

Reduces Shrink and Improves Bunklife

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11GFT produces specific fibre-digesting enzymes as it replicates in silage, reduces shrink and improves bunklife of the silage face during feedout.

Stimulates “Front-End” Fermentation

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11GFT stimulates “front-end” fermentation efficiency by rapidly dropping pH, helping to retain valuable nutrients (sugar and starch). 

Helps Lower Feed Costs

Sila-Bac® brand Nutrivail® Feed Technology 11GFT is an excellent choice for high-production animals that are fed high levels of grass or cereal silage, as it improves digestibility, animal performance and milk yield.

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. Please use this information as only part of your product positioning decision. Refer to or contact a Pioneer sales representative for the latest and most complete listing of traits and scores for each Pioneer brand product and for product placement and management suggestions specific to your operation and local 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.
