ADVANTAGE INOCULANTS

ADVANTAGE FORAGE ENHANCER

Advantage Forage Enhancer is an inoculant of bacteria and enzymes designed to reduce dry matter loss and maintain high quality haylage and silage. Advantage does this by rapidly dropping pH to inhibit mold and yeast feeding. Less mold and yeast feeding means less heating, dry matter loss and spoilage. This preserves and helps maximize the crop with very high quality feed. Your cows will respond with higher milk production.

WHY ADVANTAGE FORAGE ENHANCER IS BETTER

    • Contains four strains of bacteria to work in a wide pH and moisture range.
    • Applies high level of bacteria per gram of crop 150,000 cfu/g of crop which is above the industry average level of 100,000 cfu/g of crop.
    • Combines bacteria PLUS enzymes (most competitors do not include this critical component). Enzymes help break down some of the plant fiber to help the bacteria be more efficient.
    • Water-soluble products contain a buffering agent to keep the solution neutral in application tank. This keeps the bacteria viable and prevents settling in tank.
    • Advantage Forage Enhancer comes in a dry flowable (FS370DF) and two water soluble (FS320WS and FS340WS).

 

ADVANTAGE MT550CL **NEW**

ADVANTAGE MT550CL is a new addition to the Advantage lineup. This is an inoculant that includes scientifically selected lactic acid producing bacteria formulated to drive
an efficient fermentation to retain crop nutrients with Bacillus subtilis bacteria to manage clostridia growth in forage.

When forage (mostly alfalfa haylage) is ensiled at a high moisture level (>65% moisture) there is a risk the natural clostridia bacteria in the forage could dominate the fermentation and produce butyric acid as a by-product. Haylage with a clostridial fermentation can be identified by high moisture content, dark green appearance and a strong, offensive butyric odor. Since the production of butyric acid by the clostridia is inefficient, dry matter losses tend to be high and poor palatability makes it difficult to meet the energy requirements of early lactating cattle. To compensate for this energy loss the cow may enter ketosis, where they metabolize large quantities of fat, putting the cow at high risk for disease and reduced milk yield.

The Bacillus subtilis bacteria in the MT550CL is scientifically chosen to handle various strains of clostridia bacteria and reduce their negative effects on the haylage and silage harvested at higher moisture conditions. Highly recommended if you are harvesting under wet and less than ideal conditions. Like all Advantage products; it is designed to protect what you have and maximize your yield.

ADVANTAGE HMC 780B & 790B

Advantage HMC is a Buchneri-based inoculant that excels in yeast control on feed-out in addition to quick fermentation after harvest. Yeast control on feed-out helps to extend bunk life with less crop thrown out due to spoilage or feeding cows partially spoiled forage. In some cases it has been known to reduce somatic cell count in milk. Ideal for high-moisture corn, but does work with silage also.
