Agri-King has been serving customers in the United States since the company was founded in 1968. In 1997, Agri-King Limited was established in the United Kingdom, introducing Agri-King products to the European market. Several years later, Silo-King® was registered in Canada and joined the Canadian marketplace.
What Sets Silo-King Apart?
Less Heating – Antioxidants scavenge oxygen within the forage or grain, minimizing respiration and heating to reduce dry matter loss and retain more nutrients.
Increased Digestibility – Enzymes break down the cell wall and predigest stem fibres and grain starches, unlocking valuable nutrients and allowing the forage or grain to be more easily digestible in the rumen.
Enhanced Palatability – Reduced spoilage helps retain sugars to reduce secondary fermentation, which allows for improved palatability for livestock.
More Energy – Improved digestibility and nutrient retention help make for higher quality feeds with more available energy.
Improved Storage Life – Spoilage and heating are controlled to improve bunk life, resulting in minimized dry matter loss.
Lactic Acid Bacteria (LABs) – Controls ensiling process to completion; reduces dry matter loss; lowers pH for quicker fermentation
Enzymes – Predigests complex fibres and grain starches, increasing digestibility and sugars while releasing more energy for rumen microorganisms
Food-grade Antioxidants – Maintains oxygen-free environment to limit rancidity and growth of “spoilage organisms”.
