Effects of Molasses and Bacterial Inoculant on Chemical Composition and Aerobic Stability of Sorghum Silage
M.M. Paviz, T. Ghoorchi and F. Ghanbari

Abstract:
This experiment was conducted to determine the effects of an inoculant (lactobacillus plantarum, 106 g kg-1 fresh forage) and molasses (%5), on chemical composition and aerobic stability of sorghum (speedfeed variety) silage. The data were analyzed as Completely Randomized Design with 5 replicates for each treatment. The pH of all treated silage was below 4 and did not significantly differ (p>0.05). The DM content was same in all treatments (p>0.05). Ash content was greater in silage treated with molasses than inoculants and control (p<0.05). Crude Protein (CP) did not significantly differ among treatments (p>0.05). Ammonia-N concentration was higher in silage treated with molasses than inoculants and control (p<0.05). Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) content did not significantly differ among treatments (p>0.05). Silage treated with inoculant had greater disappearance Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF) compared to silages treated with molasses and control (p<0.05). Crude Fat (CF) was not significantly different among treatments (p>0.05). The pH and temperature was measured regularly each 2 h for 12 days after opening silos. Finally silage affected by additives (p<0.05). Silage treated with bacterial inoculant had higher pH and temperature (4/66, 26/46) compare to silage treated with molasses (4/49, 24/97) and control (4/03, 24/17) (p<0.05). Spoilage in forages tissues was more than in silage treated with bacterial inoculation compare to others (p<0.05).
