Today’s dairy producers have many decisions to make — some on a daily basis, others less frequently. All, however, are critical to ensuring the performance of their animals and the profitability of their businesses.
One major component of modern dairy production is forage quality and supply, but since silage is made only three to five times a year, it’s important to make the right decision when choosing a silage inoculant. To make this decision a little easier, Chr. Hansen has launched a new, interactive website featuring handy tools and useful information to help producers make the best choices for their farms.Our latest innovation is a product selector tool, which is designed to help producers find the right answers by asking them the right questions. The simple,three- step process begins with ting the crop, followed by expected dry matter content. Finally, users are prompted to reflect on their history and any challenges they anticipate or may have encountered, such as spoilage, odors and early feed-out. While not all problems repeat themselves, our vast, on-farm experience indicates certain patterns.
