Inoculant

Ecocool

Description

Ecocool combines the rapid fermentation and improved digestibility of MTD/1 with the improved aerobic stability offered by Lactobacilus buchneri PJB/1. Ideal for maize and grass stacked silages, Ecocool helps your silage face keep its cool and minimise dry matter loss.

Features and Benefits

+

-

Quickly dominates a stack, resulting in rapid lowering of pH in the first 24 hours of ensiling which preserves more DM and protein.

28 trials show a +3.6% improvement on DM recovery with MTD/1 vs untreated silage which means more feed for your animals

Studies show that Ecocool treated silage maintains aerobic stability, preventing heating above ambient temperature by at least +67 hours.

Prevents yeast and mould development, minimising heating on the open face and associated DM losses while feeding out.

GMO free and suitable for organic use
