Pasture and forage crops contains valuable nutrients which your animals use to produce milk or meat. It’s important to retain them. The type and number of acid producing bacteria present in your pasture or crop will influence the amount of dry matter and nutrients you lose in the ensiling process.

Pioneer® brand ​products ​inoculants provide the right bacteria in ideal numbers for a fast, efficient fermentation. They help lock in nutrients and dry matter so your livestock can produce more milk or meat from every tonne of pasture or crop you ensile.


Silage inoculants are an investment, not an expense and the benefits to using the best silage inoculants on the market are profuse and wide ranging. As pasture and forage crops such as corn and sorghum contain valuable nutrients which livestock use to produce meat or milk, it’s important to retain these nutrients throughout the ensiling process.

In addition to environmental factors, the variety and number of acid-producing bacteria which are present in the pasture or crop ensiled influences the amount of dry matter and nutrients lost in the ensiling process. These bacteria are vitally important as they effectively lock in dry matter and nutrients so livestock can produce more milk or meat from the pasture or crop ensiled.
