Influence of Ensilaging Additives on Fermentation Quality and Aerobic Stability of Maize Silage
Maize is generally considered to be easily ensilageable, provided that adequate conditions are available for ensilaging. The said conditions include, additionally to technical ones, also the contents of dry matter and nutrients. Khan et al. (2015) state that the dry matter intake (DMI), milk production and the contents of dairy proteins in the milk increased with increasing ripeness of the maize and achieved an optimum level at maize silage ensilaged with dry matter contents of 30-35 %, slightly decreasing when the dry matter was increased above 35 %. According to Peyrat et al. (2016), when ensilaging or harvesting maize with dry matter above 35 %, the digestibility of starch decreases and the amount of starch passing the digestive tract of the animals without benefit increases. That results in higher amount of starch in excrements.
