Lidea innovates to improve the digestibility of corn silage with its solution for dairy farms: DUO SILO.
DUO SILO is a combination of two silage corn hybrids, which are agronomically compatible and complementary in terms of nutritional value. Hybrids are carefully selected for their important agronomic traits: high yield, kernel weight, maturity, plant height, lodging resistance and, above all, feed value.
Sowing two different varieties evenly in the field helps to obtain homogeneous silage balanced in slowly and rapidly digestible starch. It guarantees two different digestion speeds to supply energy without risk of acidosis. The rapid starch will be broken down in the rumen while the slow starch will be digested in the rest of the digestive tract.
The results of more than 100 tests conducted across Europe, Russia and Belarus, in technical institutes and dairy farms, confirm DUO SILO’s performance and beneficial effect on milk production:
- MILK PRODUCTION INCREASE between 1.7 L and 4 L per cow per day
- MILK QUALITY IMPROVEMENT +0.5 points protein, +1.2 points fat
- REDUCED RISK OF ACIDOSIS AND OPTIMISED RUMEN PH
- COMPLETE GRAIN DIGESTION
COMPLEMENTARY NUTRITIONAL VALUES & INCREASED PROFITABILITY
