Maintain feed quality with Kemin solutions
High-quality animal feed is judged based on its nutritional value and visual appearance. From harvest to feeding, maintaining the nutritional value and quality of cattle feed takes more than just good handling and storage practices. To maintain forage value, producers must look for additional solutions to protect their feed quality.
- Hay – Research has demonstrated the application of forage additives before hay is baled and forages are stored can result in a good return for a producer’s investment.
- Silage – Acid-based preservatives for hay, haylage or silage can reduce losses from molds, wild yeast and certain bacteria, especially when the forage is not harvested at ideal moisture levels.
- Grain – Treating crops with a blended organic acid before short- and long-term storage helps prevent grain mold and bridging of the grain.
- Total Mixed Ration (TMR) – To help prevent heating and any other risk from occurring, organic acids can be added to the TMR. The combined multiple acids will act on numerous mold and wild yeast to lessen their impact.
Producers should look for solutions to preserve the quality of their hay and silage they harvest and their grain. Only by addressing each component of the final ration can producers ensure total feed quality.
