BONSILAGE FIT G converts sugar into Propylene glycol


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

The lactic acid bacteria in BONSILAGE FIT G leaf 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.

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 fig. 2).

Measurably more cow fitness

With the use of Bonsilage Fit G your herd profits several times. The  rumen critical lactic acid is reduced and the physiologically more valuable acetic acid is increased. This also ensuresStability of the silages after opening and has a positive effect on feed intake. In average 2.9 % i. DM Propylene glycol is converted rounds off the fermentation acid pattern and improves the energetic supply of your cows.

The dangerous residual sugar, which can be found often in untreated Grass silage , will be also reduced and simplifies the possibly higher use of concentrate or molasses in the ration.
