KOFASIL® DUO

Biological Silage Inoculant

for Improvement of Fermentation Quality
and Reheating Control 

Improved animal performance plus protection against reheating and mould

The exclusive use of lactic acid forming bacterial products (homofermentative bacteria), to improve fermentation quality, has been a widely used as a practical step in silage production.

The disadvantage of using just homofermentative lactic acid bacteria products is the fact that it has a negative impact on aerobic stability and causes reheating. This may result in large nutrient losses after opening the silage stack and may also result in a reduced feed intake in the animal or the feed doesn't provide as many nutrients to the animal as it could.

With the combination of a hetero fermentative lactic acid bacteria, which form antifungal acetic acid, and the homofermentative acid bacteria, a new way has been found to link the positive effects of both groups of bacteria, thereby, providing a stable environment for the feed by reducing the susceptibility to reheating while simultaneously ensuring high fermentation quality.

Numerous studies with a wide range of forage including grass, alfalfa, red clover and whole crop cereals show the positivity of the double effect of Kofasil Duo on the insiling and storage process.

  • Avoids food energy losses from the field all the way to the feed bin

  • Improves palatability and feed intake

  • Improves animal performance
