Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the quantity of organic acids present in silage. To be sure that the methods of analysis were correct, two different procedures were used: column and gas-liquid chromatographic analysis. To determine the actual quantities of the organic acids, 36 samples from various containers were used. The containers used were concrete silos, 55 gallon barrels, and also some samples were analyzed which were ensile din pint, quart, and one-half gallon jars. It was found that there is no real definite amount of organic acid produced in different silage fermentations.
