Using ensiled high moisture grains in mono-gastric animal feeds

 
Dr. Harri Miettinen and Dr. Li. Li
 

All cereals, including maize, and pulses, such as peas, beans, lupins and soya, are suitable for moist ensiling and crimping. Cereals are harvested for ensiling a few weeks earlier than conventionally, then being crushed (crimped) before ensiling by suitable machinery which can process high moisture grain.


Chemical additives based on organic acids are applied during crimping in order to ensure high quality of the ensiled grains. Ensiling principles are the same as in forage ensiling. Ensiling is based on low pH and anaerobic conditions. Low pH is achieved by effective lactic acid fermentation.
