Bonsilage Fit G converts sugar into propylene glycol

Energy deficit, especially at the beginning of the lactation, is a problem in dairy cattle farming. These deficits can be compensated through the use of BONSILAGE-silage additives. BONSILAGE FIT G optimises the energy characteristics of the grass silages and provides for a high aerobic stability.


The lactic acid bacteria in BONSILAGE FIT G turn sugar into propylene glycol, increase the stability of the grass silages and support with the formed acetic acid a rumen milieu, which is suitable for ruminants. The results of the grass silages analysis 2018 prove clearly a positive effect of BONSILAGE FIT G to stability and energetic enhancement (see figure 1).


More propylene glycol


The ISF Schaumann research team identified in more than 800 analyses from grass silage 2018 treated with Bonsilage Fit G an average amount of propylene glycol of 2,9 % in DM. Dairy farmers who treated their silage with BONSILAGE Fit G, report about significantly better fertility of the Herd. The increased production of propylene glycol through the use of BONSILAGE Fit G and the positive effect on fitness of the cows has also been scientifically proven (see figure 2).


Measurably more cow fitness


With the use of Bonsilage Fit G your herd benefits in many ways. The rumen critical lactic acid is reduced and the physiologically more valuable acetic acid is increased. This also ensures stability of the silages after opening and has a positive effect on feed intake. The propylene glycol formed on average 2.9% i.TM rounds off the fermentation acid pattern and improves the energetic supply of your cows.
