Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis is unique because it can grow both aerobically and anaerobically (both in the presence or absence of oxygen). This is an uncommon trait for nearly any commercially produced bacteria culture. Because of this, L. lactis ssp. lactis can continue to work in volatile conditions.
This organism can also produce Nisin, an antibiotic-adjacent substance that can prohibit pathogens such as Listeria, Staphylococcus, and Clostridium, reducing butyric acid and its odors.
In silage inoculants, L. lactis significantly reduces the growth of yeasts and molds and improves dry matter recover in the top layer of forage.
