For high-quality silage, all technical requirements relating to silage must be properly fulfilled: Maize plants generally silage very well and cause no problems during fermentation. They contain a high amount of sugar and carry enough lactic acid bacteria for low-loss silage. Usually it only gets problematic during outputting of the silage, especially when the required minimum feed can’t be guaranteed.
Due to their very high nutrient density, many maize silages tend to have reduced aerobic durability. This means that during the outputting from the silo, the silages quickly heat up and get mouldy. These changes are associated with high losses that can even lead to inadequacy for feeding.
