Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate nutritional value, fermentation losses, and aerobic stability of elephant grass silage (Pennisetum purpureum Schum.) treated with exogenous fibrolytic enzymes. The experiment was conducted in a completely randomized design with four replicates (experimental silos) and five levels of fibrolytic enzymes (0, 1.5, 3.0, 4.5 and 6.0%). For this, the elephant grass was ensiled at 70 days of age in plastic buckets with 20L capacity. Silos were opened 60 days after sealing. Analyse… Show more

“…The great EL was probably related to the low DM contents of the forage before ensiling (Table 1), which is a feature in elephant grass silages that do not receive a moisture reduction technique (Ribas et al ., 2021). The relatively high moisture content in the ensiled mass is one of the main factors that contribute to increased EL and the type of silo, degree of compaction and physical processing of the forage (Rigueira et al ., 2018; Lemos et al ., 2020).…”
