Multi-Sile II vs. preservative

Multi-Sile II starts working the moment its applied!

Easy to use and more palatable than preservatives.

Multi-Sile II inoculant is better for optimal ruminant gut health than any preservative.

Multi-Sile II is an all-natural microbial inoculant. Multi-Sile II uses a proprietary combination of multi-species and multi-strain Lactic acid bacteria, Bacilli and enzymes to promote the healthy fermentation of silage. Multi-Sile II causes baled hay to stay green and become more nutritious, while allowing hay to be baled at up to 27% moisture.

Multi-Sile II is the most effective forage inoculant on the market today with over 30 years of University and Corporate research.

How Does Multi-Sile II® Work?

The ingredients included in Multi-Sile II II® are specifically selected for their roles. Team work of Lactic Acid Bacteria species L. acidilactici, E. faecium and L. plantarum act in relay to start the fermentation at neutral pH 7 and rapidly bring it down to pH 3.5. This keeps the feed cool. The amylase enzyme convert the available starch in the ensiled materials to sugars. The cellulase enzyme breaks up the cellulase cell walls so more of the feed gets digested and converted to energy for production. Pectinase breaks down pectin in the cell wall as an additional digestion aid. Xylanase converts xylose to usable sugars. Bacillus pumilus acts as an oxygen scavenger by reducing the oxygen pockets as well as secreting bacteriocins to limit plant cell respiration and reduce the number of undesirable bacteria, yeasts and molds. This process saves the available sugars for the lactic acid producing bacteria.

Use Good Silo Management

Good silage management is within the control of the silage producer. No product can replace the procedures the producer must follow to make good silage. In the process of ensiling, air is the mortal enemy. The oxygen in the air is mixed into the forage as it is chopped and will cause complete biological burning.

Three factors in reducing trapped air:
1st – Crops harvested should contain 60 to 70 percent moisture to ensure a good pack.
2nd – A chop of 3/8” to 1/2” tends to pack tighter and avoid air space.
3rd – Silos need to be filled rapidly.

Use Multi-Sile II® as a management tool to improve fermentation.

During the conversion of moist forage into silage in the silo, valuable nutrients are lost during any fermentation, even with good silage management. The goal is to preserve as much of these nutrients as possible. To accomplish this, the time of the fermentation process must be decreased. The use of a proven inoculant can help achieve these goals.

Why Use Multi-Sile II®?

Treating forage with Multi-Sile II® significantly reduces heating due to the presence of unwanted air in the forage. This heating is caused by molds, yeasts and undesirable bacteria which thrive in the presence of air. The damage caused by these organisms can result in losses during the fermentation stage and at feedout. If the bunk is too big for the dairy operations, excess heating can be controlled with using Multi-Sile II with LB+ (Lactobacillus buchneri – a heterofermentor that eliminates bunk heating).

With Multi-Sile II® treated forage, the following results can be observed: less shrink and cooler forage. Research proves that forage treated with Multi-Sile II® contains more valuable nutrients. In milk trials, the Multi-Sile II® treated forage, when compared to untreated forage, has been shown to improve feed efficiency, weight gain, and daily milk yield. These results have been observed with the treatment of various silages and baled hay.

The product is easy to use — All-natural fermentation compared to preservatives.

When to Use Multi-Sile II®?

Use on both silage and hay. Multi-Sile II® has been tested at universities on various silages and on hay up to 27 percent. Results show a significant improvement in dry matter recovery and dry matter intake.

  • All types of ensiled forages: grass/alfalfa silage, corn silage, oatlage, wheat silage
  • High moisture ground grains
  • High moisture hay (up to 27%): alfalfa/grass hay, bermuda hay
  • Processed feed
