Abstract: Whole corn plants at stage of maturity were treated by adding microbial inoculants or formic acid at ensiling to determine the effect of these additives (lactic acid bacterial inoculants (LAB) or formic acid) on the fermentation during ensiling. Nutrients digestion coefficients, nitrogen balance, rumen function and DM,CF degradability of sheep fed rations containing untreated or treated silage. Feed intake, milk production and milk composition of crossbred Friesian cows fed treated or un-treated silage plus 6kg CFM were also studied. The results of silage quality indicated that formic acid silage had lower (P
