The initial situation

Due to the extreme drought, there have been frequent problems with the maize in recent years. The plants produced few cobs and the leaves were brown.

Why use silage inoculants?

The Funke-Heinert farm relies on a simple feed ration with few components. The use of silage inoculants is therefore essential for maize. The farmer comments:  “Without the use of Josilac®, no high-quality maize silage.”

The goal

Consistently high-quality forage and tasty silage.

Ferm and Extra Josilac boxes

The Statement

“The quality of the basic feed is decisive for the economic success of my farm. It would be risky for us if we did not use silage inoculants, as this could easily lead to high feed losses. That is why we have been using Josilac® for several years now.”

Katharina Funke-Heinert,  dairy farmer in  the Sauerland (Germany)
