High Nutrition Livestock Forage(Corn Silage)

PUNJAB RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS PVT. LTD. (PRESPL) manufactures & supplies high nutrition Livestock Forage in the form of Corn Silage, a wholesome cattle feed, which completely obviates the requirement of traditional green fodder as well as supplementary feed additives. 

Corn Silage is a high nutrient green fodder hermetically sealed in packages to preserve the goodness of the ingredients, that farmers can use to feed their ruminant livestock, especially during the dry season. As the name suggests, Corn Silage is made from 'whole' corn crop (including the grain), chopped/shredded using state-of-the-art indigenous and imported machinery, compressed and then stored under inoculation in the form of bales, to catalyse anaerobic fermentation. The fermentation process lasts for about 6-7 weeks. Matured silage is high in energy and is self preserved due to its acidic nature, which prevents microbial and fungal growth. Low oxygen concentration and high carbon dioxide concentration levels further prevent environmental degradation of the silage. 

The corn crop is carefully chosen and typically consists of best quality Corn Hybrid (DuPont Pioneer) variety specially harvested in Punjab. Corn is harvested when the Dry Matter content is about 30%-35% and the Milk Line of the grain is at an optimum to achieve maximum digestibility and quality of silage. 

The durable packaging insures long shelf life of >12months and needs no special conditions for storage.

PRESPL has set-up its own Corn Silage manufacturing facility in Village Pabri, Tehsil Rajpura in Patiala (Punjab) in partnership with Infinity Corp. and is currently in a position to supply 10000 MT of Corn Silage to any part of India. This capacity is planned to be augmented in the FY21/22 to double the current output. 

Corn Silage is a complete cattle feed solution and replaces: 

1. Green fodder, which is available only for a short duration during the year 2. Supplementary Feed, a dry packaged feed sold by manufacturers @ ~ INR25-30/kg and needs to be blended with dry fodder typically Wheat/Paddy/Sorghum straw 

3. Wheat/Paddy/Sorghum Straw etc. which are usually low in nutritional content and costs nearly as much as the Corn Silage 

Corn Silage is shown to be financially rewarding both to the Corn Farmers, who are able to realise nearly 1.5X of the Minimum Support Prices for their produce, as well as the Dairy Farmers who are witnessing 7-10% increase in milk yields to accompany overall improved health of their milch cattle. 

PRESPL proposes to supply high quality Corn Silage in mutually agreed quantities & rates to support Dairy Farms/Gaushalas. For longer tenor agreements with minimum offtake assurances, we shall be able to provide the above at preferential stable rates for the entire year.
