With earlage cattle don't have to drink a lot of water to start the break down process in their rumen, because it is already wet and pre-digested - this makes nutrients more readily available and improves feed value too. Also, digestion is aided by the naturally occurring L-form Lactic Acid that turns to propionic acid in the cow's rumen. Because Sila-Max earlage tastes sweet and causes no digestive upsets; animals lick the feed bunk clean.
Perhaps the biggest advantage to feeding earlage is that it produces more pounds of energy, protein and mineral per acre than grain. More beef or milk can be produced per acre with earlage. Feeding earlage can also result in money saved: Early cutting results in reduced field losses from weather or insects, grain storage cost is lowered; fuel consumption is reduced and there is less wasted feed.
Another advantage of Sila-Max is that it is formulated to work exceptionally well with not only earlage, but high moisture grains. Schneider noted that with the proper program, even dry grain can be reconstituted and worked into a silage feeding program.
Carl Schneider closed by saying, "With fuel and corn at record prices the demand for Sila-Max is at an all time high. If there are producers or dealers out there that want the product - we definitely need to hear from them now so that we can meet their demand."
