ABSTRACT
The effects of biological (VTT) and chemical (KemiSile 2000) additives to grass-clover silage on methane emission, basic rumen fermentation pattern, rumen bacteria and protozoa were investigated using a batch culture system. Supplementing grass-clover silage with either additive significantly increased (P≤0.05) in vitro dry matter disappearance (IVDMD) and bacteria count. Overall, neither of the additives affected the VFA proportion. The only significant differences (P≤0.05) were in the isovalerate percentage and acetate:propionate ratio (A/P). Increased A/P and IVDMD levels, bacteria count and methane emission were found in both groups.
