Corn silage ammoniation time and protein solubility

Corn silage ammoniation time and protein solubility

Animal Science Research Report (MP-108): 139-141

Whole maize plants with 34% DM content were chopped and ensiled in plastic bags without or with ammonium hydroxide added at 1% of DM 0, 30, 60 or 240 min after chopping. Fermentation decreased pH, which was generally higher with than without NH4, increased total and soluble CP and decreased insoluble CP contents in the absence of NH3 or when NH3 was added >30 min after chopping.
