• • • Conservation of maize wet rolled grain by novel biological conserving agent

Conserved rolled grain allows growing high-productive winter varieties of gramineous, providing livestock and poultry with fodder of good quality for the entire year. This report compares chemical conservant AIV-3 Plus (Finland) and biological conservant “Bioamid-3” (Russia) and their influence on maize grain quality. Grain, treated by “Bioamid-3”, had higher concentration of lactic and acetic acids, resulted from favorable microbiological processes in that lot. This grain contained water (28.2%), crude protein (10.6%), crude ash (1.02%), lactic acid (64%), acetic acid (36%), crude fat (3.4%), crude fiber (8.7%), Ca (0.04%), P (0.24%). The experiment tested the effectiveness of AIV-3 Plus and “Bioamid-3” on milk productivity, blood composition as well as rumen compounds. The first group of cows consumed maize, conserved by AIV-3 Plus, the second one — grain, conserved by “Bioamid-3”. Both experimental groups showed no negative response to the conserving agents. Concentrations of infusoria, volatile fatty acids (VFA) and pH met the Physiological Standard. “Bioamid-3” was more effective economically, compared to the foreign preparation. It saved 459.8 thousand rubles when conserved 2200 t of maize grain. “Bioamid-3” is recommended to be used for maize conservation in Russia.
