Sealing Systems

Can silage sealing systems contribute to farm profitability?

The most critical factor in maintaining high-quality silage and minimizing dry matter loss is keeping oxygen out. Helping farmers overcome spoilage, Lallemand Animal Nutrition distributes a range of innovative and proven oxygen barrier (OB) films which provide an excellent alternative to conventional polyethylene.

Substantially reduce the level of aerobic spoilage in your stored silage by limiting growth of spoilage organisms (fungi). These fungi need oxygen to respire. Oxygen barrier film reduces dry matter losses and significantly increases rumen health to impact directly on your bottom line.

There’s no need to tolerate dry matter losses; reduced animal productivity or feeding inefficiencies any longer. After purchasing livestock, the single greatest direct cost you’ll incur is feeding them, so it stands to reason that an efficient feeding system is paramount to your bottom line.
