Biological silage additive Biocrimp is used to preserve moist crimped cereals, grain-beans and maize with the moisture content of 25-40 %. That allows achieving the forage of perfect quality, well protected from aerobic defeat possible without usage of chemical (organic acids based) silage additives. The high content of bacterium Lactobacillus buchneri provides quick formation of the protective environment consisting of propionic acid and propanol, inhibiting the development of yeast and mould. Prevents grain from warming up. The preparation is produced as freeze-dried powder packed in 150 g airtight foil-coated packages. The shelf life period of 18 months at a temperature from -40 °C and lower. Adding ready solution should be carried out with the help of an additive pump at a usage rate of 4 (2) liters of working solution per 1 ton of grain, the final flow rate of 1 package per 50 tons of grain.

Biological preservative (inoculant, silage additive) for crimped grain Biocrimp contains a special strain of bacteria that improve digestability of starch of the crimped grain by 6 %. In an integrated manner the preparation is preserving grain and increasing the feeding value of the ready forage. Biocrimp is also considerably increasing aerobic stability of crimped grain, interfering with development of yeast and moulds.

Development of yeast in crimped grain is followed by warming up the product. Increase in temperature creates conditions favorable for development of moulds what leads to dry matter losses and feeding value losses by crimped grain. Moulds make mycotoxins that increase the risk of the cattle which the crimped grain is fed to to have mycotoxicosis.

The preservative interferes with development of yeast in the crimped grain and warming up by the forage. Under such cicumstances there are no preconditions for active formation of moulds. In the course of preserved moist grain storing losses of dry matter (DM) take place. A general decrease in the feeding value of the forage occurs at the expense of reduction of starch and a protein concentration. When such grain is fed to cattle the hem microflora synthesises smaller quantity of microbial protein what reduces the level of milk yields and weight gains as a result. When Biocrimp is used, in comparison with other biological and some chemical preservatives, dry matter losses are minimum. For moist crimped grain there is a risk of fast development of yeast and moulds, both during storage, and after opening the silo pit (a silage bag).

Yeasts can develop both in aerobic, and in anaerobic conditions. If yeast has not been neutralized in the course of fermentation, it will actively develop after opening the silo pit (silage bag) for feeding. Development of yeast leads to losses of DM and damage of crimped with the help of a crimper mill grain. Biocrimp contains a special strain of bacteria Lactobacillus buchneri which produce propionic acid that allows to efficiently inhibit the development of yeast in crimped grain during fermentation.
