In this study, inoculation effects of two lactic acid bacteria, L. bifermentans and L. brevis, isolated from flora of Turkey, on alfalfa silage containing 23.92% DM (unwilted), and 32.97% DM (wilted) were investigated. Result of the research indicated that wilting effected the fermentation profile significantly by decreasing the pH level and increasing dry matter preservation. Bacterial inoculation decreased the pH level, increased the production of lactic acid, whereas decreased the acetic acid, propionic acid and butyric acid in silage content. L. brevis strain as well as wilting can be used successfully in alfalfa silage production when crude protein and lactic acid production in silage were taken into consideration.
