INTRODUCTION Ensiling is generally practiced to regularize seasonal fodder availability, to preserve forage at a specific nutritive value and to improve the farm land operation/utilization. The main aim of ensiling is to preserve fodder under anaerobic condition where anaerobic microbes build up organic acids mainly lactic acid by using fermentable carbohydrates (Yahaya et al., 2004). Factors that affect the rate of lactic acid build up, pH decline and final pH of the silage are fermentable carbohydrate in fodder, its buffering capacity (related to the amount of acid needed to change the pH), dry matter (DM) content, the type and amount of bacteria present on fodder (Nisa et al., 2005; Khan et al., 2006). Whole-crop cereal silages, such as wheat, sorghum, oat and maize have extensively been studied (Khan et al., 2006; Ozturk et al., 2006; Zahiroddini et al., 2006; Touqir et al., 2007a,b) and are being used to feed dairy and beef animals in both developed and developing countries. Corn silage is a major component of diets fed to dairy cows because of the high energy yield per unit area, the ease of mechanization and storage, and the uniformly high feeding value (Oshita et al., 2007).
