Ensiling excessively wet maize with reduced losses

Kukuruza. 6, 13-14

Ensiling excessively wet maize with reduced losses

In laboratory trials, adding chalk, Na2CO3, diammonium phosphate or trisodium phosphate when ensiling young maize containing excessive amounts of water decreased losses of DM from 8.4-11.7% for the control silage to 0.8-4.2%.

Ears and grain were ensiled separately for 6 months at each moisture content. With moisture 30 and 20% average pH was 4.20 and 4.83; in DM lactic acid was 0.59 and 0.01 and acetic acid 0.21 and 0.05%...

Part 1: Effect of delayed ensiling (24 hours interposed storage) on feeding value, losses and silage quality; costs of tube ensiling. Pressed pulp is a valuable animal feed and must be carefully conserved. To this end, the use of plastic tubes has proved to be a flexible, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly procedure that was investigated in a large-scale research proje...

Loss of organic matter in the maize silages was 18 and 21%. Percentage digestibili...

Maize fodder, second cut, at the dough stage had practically the same composition after ensiling for about 11 months although DM fell from 31.0 to 28.3% and crude protein from 9.8 to 9.2%. In total N protein fell from 68.4 to 47.8, urea from 1.2 t...
