Live cultures for silage - LACTOSIL 3.0 and Biosilgas
Silage is plant-based fodder for herbivores and omnivores obtained via lactic fermentation of plant material (fodders and feeds), which forms the basis of the dairy food chain.
Traditional ensilage techniques aim to stimulate natural lactic fermentation in the silage fodder, allowing it to reach the right level of acidification and preventing other microorganisms from colonising the plant matter and causing a decrease in nutritional value, with the development of substances that are potentially toxic for the animals.
Sacco System live cultures for silage
Sacco System isolates, produces and distributes live cultures specially designed for the production of high-quality silage:
LACTOSIL 3.0: a live culture that makes silage safer, more palatable and more nutritious, increasing the well-being of livestock, the profitability of the business and the hygiene levels of the final products. Composed of a selection of homofermentative lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus plantarum 14D/CSL) from the best Italian fodder, LACTOSIL 3.0 guides fermentation in the right direction, guaranteeing fast acidification of the silage without CO2 production. The silo is opened after just three weeks, preventing the growth of unwanted microorganisms, spores, non-lactic acid bacteria, etc.
Biosilgas: a mixture of live cultures selected for the ensilage of plant-based material (Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus casei) targeted to work together to reduce ensilage losses and improve methanogenesis yield. Biosilgas allows maintenance of the energy contained in ensiled biomass, as well as an increase in the production of substrates useful for the methanogenic bacteria in biodigesters, due to lactic fermentation in place of degrading non-lactic fermentation (non-LAB
