Micron Bio-Systems Advance Grass is a crop-specific silage inoculant offering exceptional quality and value in forage conservation technology. Advance Grass combines 4 key components formulated specifically to optimise the feed value, preservation and stability of grass silage.
Improves silage quality
Increases digestible NDF and crude protein for more energy
Reduces dry matter losses, minimising nutrient loss
Improves aerobic stability so less heating
Inhibits mould formation
Easy to mix and apply
Suitable for use in organic systems
Role of Lactic Acid
Advance contains two forms of lactic acid bacteria to lower the pH and help get a quicker fermentation. Reduces spoilage organisms and wastage in the clamp by being active throughout the entire pH range. Improves nutrient retention by inhibiting plant enzymes. The value in this results from minimising nutrient loss and creating a more stable silage after ensiling.
Role of Acetic Acid
Our Lactobacillus brevis bacteria produces acetic acid, inhibiting the heating of silage by slowing yeast and mould growth in silage and TMR when subjected to oxygen ingress. Reduces dry matter loss, making more energy available for feeding.
Role of Enzymes
The unique mixture of enzymes in Advance assist in the breakdown of some fibres to improve digestibility and the separation of carbohydrates from lignin, which supports improved animal performance, including milk production. We include our own crop-specific cocktail of enzymes to suit the type of plant fibre you are ensiling.
We want any extra energy to go directly to milk production or growth, to help drive up your profits.
Role of Microbial Stimulants
Microbial stimulants are added to kick-start the inoculant for rapid action at ensiling, protecting and helping the bacteria in Advance to work at peak efficiency. This helps ensure an effective mix of the product and activation of the bacteria for the most efficient application and results.
