The following calculation bases on an increase of energy content (+0.2 MJ NEL/kg dry matter), an increase of dry matter intake (+0.5 to 1.0 kg dry matter per day) and an increase of milk yield (1.7 to 2.7 kg/cow and day), which has been shown in different trials as well as on farm level. Rather high benefit can be achieved by the use of BIO- SIL® although the proven reduction of nutrient losses was not taken into account as well as decrease of veterinarian costs.
Due to the years of experience the graph below shows importance of the high quality feedstuff and consequences of its lack.
Bad silage is the most expensive silage.
F - Feedstuff quality
M – Herd management
E - Environment
