Alltech’s new line of inoculants boosts silage quality

Alltech has introduced Egalis, a new line of high-quality silage inoculants that will enhance the control of epiphytic bacteria during the forage’s fermentation process. These products will also increase the nutrient quality of silage and reduce dry matter loss for commercial and organic farms. 

“The Egalis range of products brings together decades of expertise in fermentation, utilizing bacteria strains specifically selected by Alltech scientists to maximize nutrient and dry matter protection,” says Matthew Smith, vice president at Alltech. 

The Egalis lineup includes three silage inoculants.

  • Egalis Ultra.

For use on all forages, Egalis Ultra rapidly drives fermentation to a stable and final pH. It is composed of specific strains of Lactobacillus plantarum and Pediococcus pentosaceus, which work to rapidly lower the pH to a desired final acidity. Silage benefits of the product includes maximizing forage quality, supporting nutrient retention, reducing dry matter losses, and driving sustainable feed usage. Egalis Ultra also offers a variety of packaging options to accommodate farms of all sizes. 

  •     Egalis Ultra HC.

The Egalis Ultra HC works on all forages and provides the same benefits as Egalis Ultra. Farmers can get a concentrated formula to provide more ease of application for larger amounts of silage.

  • Egalis Ultra HC-OA.

More suitable for organic use, Egalis Ultra HC-OA drives lactic acid production and has a rapid drop in pH for a certifiably organic package. Other benefits include better silage preservation, digestibility, and palatability. It is also formulated using specific strains of Pediococcus pentosaceus and Lactobacillus plantarum.
