Feed Preservation

Advance - Silage Inoculants


Advance® is a range of silage inoculants that have been specifically formulated to produce the best results in silages made from grass, legume, maize and whole crop cereal. They are suitable for livestock forage based feed systems and also on forage used in anaerobic energy production/bio-gas.

The Challenge

Ensiling is the most efficient and cost effective manner to preserve the growing forage and feed animals all year around. Achieving effective fermentation is utmost importance in producing high-quality silage. Lowering pH as quickly as possible is key to maintain nutrient value as well as create less favourable conditions for undesired microorganisms. To maintain the aerobic stability in silage is critical as yeasts and moulds are major factors for aerobic deterioration.


The Solution

The focus of our products are on the properties of different ensiling materials offering a full range of solutions:

  • Advance® Grass
  • Advance® Legume
  • Advance® Maize
  • Advance® Whole Crop
Advance range


Each product has been designed to contain 4 common components that have been individually formulated to achieve maximum effect in ensiling different forages.

Bacteria Bacteria

An accomplishment of effective fermentation and aerobic stability is guaranteed by a fundamental principal of Advance®Advance® Silage Inoculants contain a two-strain mix Pediococcus and Lactobacillus, proprietary to Micron, to assure rapid fermentation of sugars into lactic acid to drop a pH of the crop. Lactobacillus brevis acetic acid producing strain inhibits growth of spoilage yeasts and moulds.

New powerful enzymes identified by Micron’s R&D separate effectively fermentable fibre from lignin leading to significant increases in digestibility of treated forages.

Freeze dried bacteria are present in a dormant state in silage inoculants and can be slow to become active when added to silage. Advance® Silage Inoculants contain specific components, which stimulate the bacteria to ensure maximum activity once rehydrated.
