In this study, two fresh culture multistrains were produced and tested on corn silage; homofermentative and hetrofermentative from commercially and laboratory produced inoculants. Chemical properties and characteristics of silage samples were determined in mini- silos for 7, 14, 28, 45 and 90 days (triplicate per treatment). In situ ruminal degradability of DM and CP and in vitro gas production of fresh forage and silage (45 and 90 day silage) were investigated. There were differences between treatments for DM, OM, CP and Ash contents. Residual WSC and CP contents decreased and the concentration of NH3-N increased with time post ensiling. Corn silage inoculated with the homofermentative inoculant had the lowest pH in all ensiling times except that of 28 days. Inoculated corn silage had lower pH than untreated corn silage at all ensiling times. Although, inoculation of corn silage significantly affected ruminal degradability of DM, but ruminal CP degradability was not influenced. Inoculation of corn silage had a significant effect on gas production from the corn silage. It was concluded that inoculation of corn silage improved ensiling characteristics; however the fresh culture inoculant did not have a remarkable effect compared with the commercially produced inoculant.
