Promote® Forage-Mate® products are created by combining extensive forage protection research, feed-application insights, and global expertise.
Both independent and private research has continued to show a significant economic advantage for treating forage with microbial inoculants. A Kansas State study, which analyzed 1,000 silage samples from 25,000 silos, reported 90% of the comparisons vs. a control silo indicating an economic benefit of using inoculant technology1 and another study from the University of Delaware reported a 3.1 lb. milk response2.
What are the advantages of using a microbial inoculant?
Improved dry matter recovery
Improved speed of fermentation
Reduced final silage pH due to higher lactic acid production
Improved nutrient digestibility
Improved animal performance
Some products (Promote® EBL and BP) have also been shown to improve aerobic stability (bunk life)
How do you choose which microbial inoculant to use?
Provimi US offers 6 unique Forage-Mate® microbial inoculant products that can be used on multiple types of forages.
