ABSTRACT: Objective of the research was to study the effect of using starter on silage making. Four treatments with 3 replications were applied in a completely randomized design. The treatments were R0 = Basal diet; R1 = R0 + EM-4 4%; R2 = R0 + enriched EM-4 4%; and R3 = R0 + rumen fluid 4%. Results of the experiment showed that EM-4, enriched EM-4, and rumen fluid significantly affect the color, texture, pH, as well as the smell of the silage. The best quality of silage was achieved by using EM-4 4% and using rumen fluid 4% as starter in silage making.
