Biotal Forage Inoculants

Biotal Logo

Biotal® forage inoculants have been shown to consistently produce better quality feedstuffs and therefore increase production.

During forage fermentation, an unseen battle between armies of good and bad (spoilage) microbes takes place. Letting the bad guys win means lost energy, feed, production and profits. Biotal forage inoculants bring armies of billions of elite, scientifically selected good bacteria to help win the battle by:

  1. Ensuring Rapid Fermentation
  2. Maximizing DM recovery
  3. Maximizing nutrient retention
  4. Inhibiting aerobic spoilage

Biotal Uses Combinations of three elite core technologies:

Elite Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Strains

Biotal forage inoculants contain scientifically selected, elite LAB strains with validated colony forming units (CFUs) for a faster, more efficient fermentation. This means:

Patented Formulations with Enzymes

Enzymes help break down plant fibers and feed the LAB. The high activity enzyme formulation in Biotal Plus, Biotal Buchneri 40788 and Biotal Buchneri 500 also help to:

High dose L. buchneri 40788

Biotal Buchneri 500, Biotal Buchneri 40788 and Biotal Buchneri Hay 40788 contain a high dose of L. buchneri 40788 — reviewed by the FDA and allowed to claim efficacy in preventing heating and spoilage. This helps:
