Effect of a microbial inoculant (Ecosyl and/or a glycopeptide antibiotic (vancomycin) on fermentation and aerobic stability of wilted alfalfa silage



Effect of a microbial inoculant (Ecosyl and/or a glycopeptide antibiotic (vancomycin) on fermentation and aerobic stability of wilted alfalfa silage



Animal Feed Science and Technology 35(1-2): 37-48



First cutting alfalfa was wilted (420 g dry matter kg-1) and was untreatred (control) or treated with a microbial inoculant (Ecosyl, Lactobacillus plantarum), a glycopeptide antibiotic (vancomycin, 50 or 150 ppm), or combinations of inoculant and antibiotic before ensiling. Microbial inoculation increased initial counts of lactic acid bacteria from approximately 3.5 to 4.9 log10 cfu g-1 forage.
