Once the weather heats up, bunkers can really heat up too. Keep bunker faces as tight as possible, since the top layer is more prone to heat than the rest of the bunker. CHR Hansen’s Silosolve® OS is a special silage inoculant that is sprayed on the top layer to help reduce molds and yeast. Producers who used it last year were pleased with the results.
Biomax® 5 does a good job of keeping the heat of fermentation down during the ensiling process, and Silosolve® MC helps reduce clostridia in haylage.
Low lignin alfalfa looks very interesting. We have a few producers who planted it for this year’s new seeding and are very excited to see the tonnage, quality and improved digestibility it brings.
