The solution to silage challenges
SILOSOLVE® FC has consistently yielded silage preferred by dairy cows. SILOSOLVE® FC promotes rapid, controlled fermentation and ensures that dry matter and nutrients from the field are preserved and available for your cows.
SILOSOLVE® FC improves aerobic stability while improving dry matter recovery (Figures 1-2)
SILOSOLVE® FC is a unique, dual-action inoculant that improves aerobic stability and at the same time improves dry matter recovery over a broad range of dry matter and forages. While SILOSOLVE® FC increased aerobic stability up to 30 days in university trials, dry matter recovery across crops was improved an average of four points compared to untreated silages.
SILOSOLVE® FC improves stability – even at early feed out (Figures 3-4)
Review of the literature indicates that L. buchneri normally produces acetic acid after 56 days of ensiling. With SILOSOLVE® FC, acetic acid production has been observed on day two of ensiling maize silage and as a result improved aerobic stability even after a short fermentation time. In alfalfa silage aerobic stability was improved by 13 days.

What ́s inside SILOSOLVE® FC
SILOSOLVE® FC contains our proprietary strain of Lactobacillus buchneri LB1819, plus our unique strain of
Lactococcus lactis O224. This novel combination facilitates rapid establishment of anaerobic conditions and improves fermentation to inhibit yeast and mold growth, resulting in improved aerobic stability at feed out – even as early as seven days of fermentation. Targeted crops for SILOSOLVE® FC include whole crop maize, small grain, grasses and alfalfa/grass mixtures. SILOSOLVE® FC is particularly effective when there is a risk for fungal growth and across a broad range of moistures.
