    Abstract

    By treating prewilted grass with Pioneer? 11GFT more sugars and apparently also more easy degradable cell walls were fermented to lactic and acetic acid, resulting in a lower pH, less DM-losses and protein degradation and a better aerobic stability. The treated silage contained less rumen degradable NDF, but more degradable OM and had also a higher total OM digestibility. These effects were more pronounced for grass cut in a young growth stage and after a long ensiling period.
