Silage Additives

The Sila-Guard range of silage additives helps you create intelligent silage, a new way of producing silage that best suits your livestock. New grass and maize varieties create more sugar and starch and have lower fibre contents. In addition, developments in the way the cut material is managed and changes in growing crop management are presenting challenges to the silage maker.

The range includes additives for grass, whole crop and maize silage production, formulated to produce high quality silage with a balanced acid profile for your livestock.
