Tractor collecting silageSilage inoculants to maximize nutrient and dry matter protection

We know that silage-making is at the core of what you do. However, not all of the silage produced will make it to the feed passage. From fresh crop to harvest and through storage, the feed value drops, as does the physical quantity of the silage — by as much as 25%! This can hurt animal performance and increase your feed costs.

Egalis® is a new range of high-quality silage inoculants from Alltech® that maximizes nutrient quality retention and reduces dry matter loss. This means you have more silage to feed, better silage to feed and fewer concerns about wasting feed. Through enhanced palatability and increased dry matter intake, Egalis contributes to more profitable milk and meat production.


The Egalis range of silage inoculants

Egalis drives quick and proper fermentation, which helps epiphytic bacteria control fermentation through the use of other specific bacteria.

The Egalis product line is available in several variations and packaging options for farms of all sizes to provide you the flexibility and ease of application needed for a stress-free silage season.

<>Technical Description

Fermentation is at the core of what we do at Alltech, and silage-making happens to be the largest industrial fermentation process around the world. The Egalis range of products brings together our more than four decades of expertise in fermentation, utilizing strains of bacteria that were specifically selected by our scientists to maximize nutrient and dry matter protection and improve animal performance.

Together with our on-farm support team and through our range of analytical services, we help improve fermentation to produce quality silage, enabling you to hold onto more of what you grow, from field to feed passage.


The basics of fermentation

Fermentation is loosely defined as the breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeast or other microorganisms. In silage, a natural fermentation process, which takes place in the absence of oxygen, breaks down the plant sugars in the forage crop and converts them into acids. These acids drop the pH of the silage and help prevent the development of molds and fungi.

Keys to fermentation:

  1. A reduced amount of oxygen present
  2. Adequate sugar levels and carbohydrates to promote bacterial activity
  3. Appropriate composition and temperature and suitable numbers of microbial bacteria
  4. Proper harvest moisture

The role of Egalis

Suitable for use on all forages, Egalis efficiently and rapidly drives fermentation to a stable, final pH. It is comprised of specific strains of Lactobacillus plantarum and Pediococcus pentosaceus, which work in conjunction to rapidly lower the pH to a more even and suitable number. This more controlled fermentation offers more consistent and better-quality silage for your animals, which helps you maintain optimal animal performance.

Benefits of Egalis:

  • Maximizes forage quality
  • Aids in nutrient retention
  • Reduces dry matter losses
  • Drives sustainable feed usage

Fibrozyme

Submitted by cewert on Mon, 02/21/2022 - 14:24

Fibrozyme enhances the ruminant digestive system in high-fiber diets

High-fiber diets can be difficult for animals to digest. Increasing the digestion of ruminal fiber in higher-forage rations — even by a small amount — can significantly impact both intake and production. Fibrolytic enzymes can boost an animal’s ability to extract nutrients from the feed, improving ruminal efficiency. Fibrozyme is a unique enzyme feed technology designed to maximize feed efficiency in high-fiber diets by better breaking down the cell wall fractions in plant fibers, encouraging intake to support productivity for both beef and dairy cattle.

Drive metabolism to maximize beef cattle performance

Carcass weight is one of the primary drivers of beef value today. Since cattle are marketed in value-based systems determined by carcass weight, it is crucial to improve carcass characteristics to add directly to your bottom line.

Research shows that, in order to increase hot carcass weight in beef cattle, farmers must work to produce healthier animals. Scientists at The Alltech Center for Animal Nutrigenomics and Applied Animal Nutrition continuously analyze how specific feed ingredients can change gene expression and alter performance. Among the top breakthroughs at the research center is a product whose name says it all: Amaize.

Benefits of Amaize

An extract of Aspergillus oryzae fermentation that contains alpha-amylase enzymes, AMAIZE® modifies ruminal digestion at the microbial level for better nutrient utilization, supporting rumen development and the physiological responses of cattle while enhancing ruminant productivity.

Optigen®

Submitted by aeadmin on Tue, 01/02/2018 - 19:03
 

Pushing the boundaries of protein nutrition

Optigen® is an innovative ingredient that provides a controlled release of non-protein nitrogen (NPN) to the rumen over time. This ensures that rumen bacteria have continued access to this essential food source, leading to an increase in microbial protein, fiber digestion and available energy for milk and meat production.

Wasted nitrogen means wasted performance

In ruminant production systems, 75–95% of the dietary nitrogen consumed as feed protein is excreted. This nitrogen is wasted because ruminants are generally unable to use nitrogen efficiently, and this has a major impact on animal performance, profitability and the environment.

Under common feeding practices, there are periods of excess followed by periods of deficiency regarding rumen ammonia levels. This is particularly evident when the diet is supplemented with urea or fat-coated urea products, which release ammonia in the rumen all at once. Excess rumen ammonia is wasteful and potentially toxic, as it can lead to elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels and, subsequently, milk urea nitrogen (MUN) levels. On the other hand, when there is a deficit of rumen ammonia for a considerable amount of time, the rumen bacteria don’t have access to this food source required for growth and, as a result, productivity slows down.

The controlled and continual supply of ruminal ammonia provided by Optigen serves to meet the nitrogen needs of rumen microbes more effectively than other sources, such as straight feed urea. This leads to more efficient use of dietary nitrogen, an increase in the microbial protein supplied to the animal and reduced nitrogen excretion.
