This is the season for Hay and Cuprem has two types of water soluble preservatives. They are Microbios Hay Inoculant W/S and Microbios Silage Inoculant W/S.
All are similar in the fact that they help to control the four stages of fermentation that hay, haylage, silage, and high moisture grain go through. The four stages are aerobic, anaerobic, storage, and feeding. The aerobic stage is the 1st, and requires microorganisms that live and use oxygen. The anaerobic stage is 2nd, and requires non-oxygen microorganisms that produce lactic, acetic and butyric acid. The most desirable is lactic acid. The storage stage is 3rd, and can last from a few weeks to several years. Microbial activity is minimal during the storage phase. The feeding stage is 4th. This is a period of great concern. Four to 6 inches of haylage or silage needs to be removed from the entire feeding face each day in order to minimize losses to aerobic deterioration.
Micro-encapsulated microorganisms has two advantages. It helps during storage and enhances product performance when used.
The ph changes from a high of 7.0 to a low of 3.5 during the 1st 72 hours. At the same time, temperatures will rise to 104°F within 24 hours,and needs to be back down to 87°F by 72 hours. Wherein lies the challenge to everyone who manufactures a microbial preservative.
To have enough of the right types of microorganisms so as the ph, temperature, and oxygen changes take place, each type lives in large enough numbers to fulfill its purpose in preserving the hay, haylage, silage, or high moisture grain.
One must always practice sound procedures as if no preservative is going to be used. Then when a microbial preservative is used, you can expect less shrinkage, less run off, less spoilage, and better feed intake. This will run on an average of $6.00 return for $1.00 spent. The exact amount will depend on the price paid for the preserver and the dollar value of the product preserved.
