One way to manage on-farm feed costs is to grow and feed more home-grown forages. However, silage produced from your forage needs to be of the best quality possible to fully take control of feed costs.

Home-grown grass, maize, legumes, alfalfa and whole cereal crops are excellent sources of protein and energy.



Increasing silage in a ration will only be of benefit if it is of the best possible quality. Poorly fermented silage contains decreased energy and protein levels and increases losses due to higher waste. None of this helps to take control of silage quality and on-farm costs.



Efficiently driving the initial fermentation, quickly reduces the silage pH. This preserves as much of the nutrient and energy content as possible by inhibiting undesirable bacteria that degrade silage quality. High nutrient and energy content mean less reliance on purchased feed.


Reducing silage losses (DM losses) by inhibiting undesirable bacteria from growing during fermentation. Poorly fermented silage can lead to physical silage losses. Losses of up to 15% are not uncommon. The availability of more high-quality silage lowers the need to purchase feeds.


Reduced losses due to preventing yeast and mold spoilage throughout feedout. MAGNIVA Platinum inhibits mold and yeast growth, significantly reducing losses through heating and wasted silage. More silage of better quality also reduces the need to purchase feeds.
