Silage making is a method of preserving fodder using microbial defences by silage wrap film to compete against attacks by destructive microbes. The silage making process has 3 phases.
In phase 1, attacks come from spoilage by composting bacteria such as Enterobacteria (1) and by the proteases released by the herbage on harvesting. The defence against phase 1 attacks is the elimination of air and reduction of the pH to about 5, which is done by microbes such as En-terococcus faecium(A). Silage inoculants generally speed up acid production and prevent am-monia formation(3), minimizing protein losses. Improving the speed of ensiling should deliver improvements during phase 1 to all silage makers.
In phase 2, it is essential for the pH to be reduced to the lowest value (generally to about pH 3.5) as soon as possible. This is generally achieved by adding Lactobacillus plantarum(B). Fail-ure to achieve phase 2 allows the growth of Clostridium, which attacks the silage in two waves - the first wave of Clostridium raises the pH and produces butyric acid, which reduces palatability. The second wave of Clostridium produces ammonia and proteases which cause extensive de-struction of silage. Although extensive phase 2 attacks are not common, a strong level of Lacto-bacillus plantarum in a silage inoculant is essential.
A third bacteria, Lactobacillus buchneri has a two fold purpose in high value silage making. By consuming oxygen both within the silage and on the peripheries of pits and bales, the conditions for Enterococcus faecium and Lactobacillus plantarum are enhanced, further reducing the likeli-hood of spoilage bacteria attacking the silage, and significantly reducing spoilage losses where silage meets the open air. The buchneri bacteria also assists to reduce heating at feed-out in both pit silage and round bale silage.
In Phase 3, the silage will have reached pH 3.5 and be stable.
