Corn silage

Corn silage

Corn silage is made up from grass crops, including maize, sorghum or other cereals, and the whole plant is used (not just the grain).

The silage is composed and kept stored in high humidity in a process called ensilage. It needs about two months to obtain a perfect product.

Corn silage is a fodder that has a high energy value, low protein but high levels of vitamins and minerals. As it contains a high level of starch, it does not contribute a high content in structural carbohydrates. However, its fiber level is very high compared to other forages, even if it has a high fat level.

Corn silage is composed of ingredients with high digestibility and it is necessary to emphasize that it does not contain dust or spores, very harmful to the respiratory system of animals.
