The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of treating corn forage with a microbial silage inoculant (Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product). Response to inoculation was compared with untreated forage in terms of chemical fermentation characteristics, preservation of dry matter and digestibility by beed steers.
