You invest a lot of time, energy and effort to create high-quality feed for animals. Our Culbac® Hay treatment is a Lactobacillus fermentation product that preserves higher moisture baled hay. Culbac Hay stimulates beneficial bacteria that counteract the harmful effects of organisms that cause baled hay to mold and spoil. When properly applied to the hay crop, Culbac Hay allows for baling of hay at moisture levels higher than what is normally recommended for stored hay.
Since the early 1970s, our products have helped farmers protect their investments in the grass hay and dried grass. In addition to being all-natural, Culbac solutions for grass hay and dried grass are economical and easy-to-use.
They can be applied at the baler, the swather, the windrow, or the cutter ahead of or behind the conditioner and allows for baling at higher moisture levels.
We have thoroughly tested (and continue to test) our grass hay and dried grass products with university research and field trials.
Culbac Hay products are concentrated, fermented preservatives for legume and grass hay available in liquid and dry forms. Culbac Hay is specifically formulated for high-moisture baling, allowing the user to capture more leaf material resulting in higher hay volume and improved nutritional quality.
Culbac Forage Product (Organic)
Culbac Forage Product (Organic) is an organic-approved option for silage and is allowed for use on ORGANIC CROPS by many regional organic certifiers. It is a multi-purpose product that provides similar benefits to Culbac Hay and Culbac Silage.
Culbac for Hay works as a preservative, a protectant, and like an inoculant. When hay is cut and dried down, the nutritional elements in the hay can begin breaking down. But the tastiest and most nutritious hay is important for successful animal production.
Culbac for Hay includes bacteria and their fermentate which provides unique qualities to protect enhance, and promote the value of hay, whether grass or crop hay. After cutting, ensuring dry down and the ability to bale at higher moisture allows you to rapidly remove your windrow. This means faster regrowth and more substantial subsequent harvest. At baling, higher moisture content allows higher leaf retention, pliability of the stalk and retains nutritional value. Minimizing mold, mildew and yeast is key for protecting the investment you make in your crop and ensures high ROI.
