Forage Inoculants


You work hard for your investment. Protect it with CHR Hansen forage inoculants.

Ensiled forages account for the majority of most dairy rations around the world. The main purpose for feeding ensiled forages is to preserve and recover organic dry matter, while retaining nutritional value and palatability.

Proper or improved silage management can have a significant impact on the overall profitability of the dairy. Discover more by contact your Territory Field Manager or local SEEDWAY office.

The Nutrient Scorecard™

The difference between a dairy operation and a smarter dairy farm operation is often the ability to collect and analyze data and act on insights. Chr. Hansen has the tools to help you get the most out of data analysis so you can improve starch and fiber digestion, minimize forage loss, and increase bottom line profitability. We call it “The Nutrient Scorecard™.” This program give farmers a scientific scorecard summary of the status of their silage and their herd’s nutritional performance, along with recommendations for improving milk production and herd digestion. With The Nutrient Scorecard™ you will know the score and can identify specific problems. It gives you the data and insights you need to make measurable improvements in your operations.

Biomax®


Biomax® is a versatile inoculant to enhance fermentation and reduce spoilage organisms. Contains the well-proven Lactobacillus plantarum CH6072 from our Biomax® and SiloSolve® brands, and features enhanced acidification from Lactobacillus plantarum LSI. In addition we have included Pediococcus pentosaceus P6 to speed the fermentation process.

Available in a 500g canister (500tt)

Benefits

  • Improves fermentation
  • Performs exceptionally well in corn silage
  • Inhibits a range of yeasts and molds

Crops

  • Corn Silage
  • HMSC/ HMEC
  • Earlage
  • Snaplage

Biomax® SB

Starch Boost


A new and innovative corn silage inoculant designed to increase the digestibility of starch in corn silage and contains 2 strains of lactic acid bacteria. One strain, Enterococcus faecium (CH212), is proven to increase the availability of starch for rumen digestion in corn silage ensiled less than the optimal time.

The second strain, Lactobaccilus plantarum (CH6072) is proven to rapidly produce lactic acid which decreases silage pH. Besides lowering pH, lactic acid will help breakdown the protein matrix to release the encapsulated starch.

Benefits

  • Increased rumen starch availability compared to non-inoculated corn silage
  • Fast growing and competitive lactic acid bacteria dominate and significantly reduce pH
  • Inhibits a range of yeasts and molds

Crops

  • Corn Silage
  • HMSC/ HMEC
  • Earlage
  • Snaplage

SiloSolve® MC

Microbial Control


Clostridia grow in wet silage when there is a lack of oxygen. Growth of clostridia leads to breakdown of protein and butyric-acid production. Silage with clostridia has a strong butyric-acid smell and elevated pH, which can reduce palatability.

SILOSOLVE® MC contains three strains of lactic-acid bacteria. One patented strain reduces undesirable micro-organisms such as clostridia. The others improve overall fermentation.

Available in a 200g canister (100tt) or 1000g canister (500tt)

Benefits

  • Reduced clostridial fermentation
  • Improved dry matter recovery
  • Improved fermentation and digestibility
  • Reduced ammonia and protein degradation
  • Improved palatability

Crops

  • Haylage
  • Small Grain Silage
  • Corn Silage

SiloSolve® AS

Aerobic Stability


Most farmers experience heating of silage largely due to the growth of yeast and mold. Good management, including proper compaction, reduces the heat. However, some crops, such as corn, heat more often than other crops.

Yeasts & molds are fungi that grow well in the presence of oxygen. Yeasts initiate the heating of silage and molds usually follow. Certain molds produce harmful mycotoxins. Mycotoxins may compromise production and health of animals.

Available in a 200g canister (100tt) or 1000g canister (500tt)

Benefits

  • Reduced heating and dry matter loss
  • Improved silage stability
  • Reduced growth of yeast and mold
  • Improved silage quality

Crops

  • Haylage
  • Corn Silage
  • HMSC/ HMEC
  • Earlage
  • Snaplage

SiloSolve® FC

Fungal Control


Heating of silage largely due to the growth of yeast and mold is problematic for feed out. Certain molds produce harmful mycotoxins which may compromise production & health of animals.

Another challenge could be feed shortage, forcing farmers to initiate feed out well in advance of the optimum 90 days of fermentation. This is problematic as it will not allow the silage to reach a stable stage. The risk of heating & loss of valuable nutrients may jeopardize milk production & could lead to a severe economic impact.

Available in a 200g canister (100tt) or 1000g canister (500tt)

Benefits

  • Excellent fermentation and aerobic stability obtained even at early feed out
  • Fast growing and competitive lactic acid bacteria that dominate and control the fermentation
  • Oxygen scavenging ability

Crops

  • Haylage
  • Corn Silage
  • HMSC/ HMEC
  • Earlage
  • Snaplage
