PRESERVOR™ is a patented Potassium Sorbate-based preservative providing significantly longer shelf life for baled hay and increased palatability for livestock. Tests show that hay bales treated with PRESERVOR™ are fresher, greener and mold-free longer than bales treated with propionic acid preservatives.
In numerous trials conducted on various cuttings of alfalfa, PRESERVOR™ has been shown to be superior to propionic acid based products in controlling mold in baled hay:

Any residual chemical of any kind (in any storage or application apparatus) should be flushed completely, and the equipment cleaned thoroughly with water eliminating residue of any kind.
FOR USE ON HAY:
Spray PRESERVOR™ on the hay as it is fed into the baler using the correct application rate indicated by the chart below:
|HAY MOISTURE||SM. BALES USE 2 NOZZLES||LG. BALES USE 3 NOZZLES|
|16% – 22%||4 – 6 lb/ton||6 – 8 lb/ton|
|22% – 26%||6 – 8 lb/ton||8 – 10 lb/ton|
|27% – 30%||10 – 12 lb/ton||12 – 14 lb/ton|
|Over 30%||Not Recommended||Not Recommended|
FOR USE ON HAYLAGE:
Spray PRESERVOR™ on the hay as it is fed into the chopper using the application rate indicated below:
Optimum haylage moisture range 55 – 65% depending on storage structure – 2 to 4 lbs/ton.
FOR USE ON BALEAGE:
Spray PRESERVOR™ on the hay as it is fed into the baler using the application rate indicated below:
Optimum baleage moisture range 48 – 56% – 2 to 4 lbs per ton.
FOR USE ON SILAGE AND TMR:
Spray PRESERVOR™ on crop at chopper or blower intake using the following application rate table:
|Small Grain Silage||60 – 70%||3 – 5 lb/ton|
|Corn Silage||60 – 70%||3 – 5 lb/ton|
|TMR Mix||2 – 8 lb/ton*|
*TMR usage rate depends on average daily air temperatures. Use rates should increase as air temperature rises.
