HOME & DRY

With the harvest about to begin and grain quality looking good, home saving grain direct from the combine is the most economical high quality feed source available.

Advantages of applying 30kg of HOME & DRY to your cereal:

 

  • Adds 4.5% protein to your feed
  • Creates an alkaline feed of 8%PH reducing the incidence of acidosis and enabling higher levels of high starch cereals to be fed.
  • Can be fed after 2 weeks of ensiling.
  • Replaces the need to buy in feed.
  • Can be stored up to 10 feet high.
  • Once stored dry can last the entire season

No moulds form as the grain is dry and the strong smell of ammonia repulses vermin.NEWSLETTER GRAIN

 

VITULIX is a new concept mineral block to complement grass for younger stock by supplying a constant flow of minerals but also providing 25% more energy than a calf ration.

  • It is formulated using evaporated molasses and is 95% DM; it contains protected fat (14MJ/KgDM) and protein (13%

    It is packed in 25kg drums and 1 bucket to 20 calves is sufficient.

    The evaporated molasses also ensures that the intake levels are curtailed but maintained.

FOOT BATHING

New to the farm store is HEALTHY HOOVES.  While we have had excellent results using formalin and peracetic acid over the last number of years there are concerns over the fumes and safety of using the product particularly where farm labourers or young family members are exposed to the product.

Copper sulphate has always been an excellent antibacterial compound for foot bathing but had to be used at very high levels for effectiveness.

The other problem is that it is relatively insoluble in water because of the typical high PH of water.

Trials have shown that by dropping the PH of water from a standard of 6 PH to 2 PH you can increase the solubility of copper from 23% to 85% and therefore increasing the level of copper ions released to combat infection.

This is achieved by adding HEALTHY HOOVES to the footbath with the copper sulphate, this acid mixture drops the PH rapidly and increases the uptake of copper, the other advantage is that an acidic footbath lasts longer increasing the number of cow passes with each standard mix suitable for 500 passes.

FARMING 2016

Whatever sector of agriculture you are in the last 12 months have been difficult.

Rain fell from October 2015 until late march 2016.

I never remember a season where we sold maize,grass,wheat,oats,beet  and barley seed all in the same week when conditions eventually came right late in the spring.

Prices across the board were poor and again the weather broke in the autumn making the harvest exceptionally difficult.

Let’s hope 2017 proves to be a better year with indications to that effect in dairy already.

We would like to thank you for your business throughout the year and from all of us In the FARM STORE wish you all a happy Christmas and prosperous new year.

September Newsletter

MAIZE DISTILLERS WET GRAINS:

Supply of wet distillers is already getting tight for this winter, we can however take prebooking’s for deliveries later in the season. Wet distillers is easy to store in or outside, high in protein, oil and relatively high in DM at 35%. Contact us for more details.

 

HOME AND DRY:

Grain harvest is well under way and with an unfortunately low grain price and little or no sign of a drop in compound feed prices many farmers are availing of treating grain direct from the combine.

Grain fill in spring barley has been very satisfactory so starch levels will be very high complemented with the 4.5% protein lift from adding 30kg of HOME & DRY.

Farmers can expect an excellent stable, high starch, increased protein Alkaline feed with a 12 month shelf life.

 

WINTER BARLEY:

Growers interested in getting wheat or barley seed dressed with REDIGO DETER should let us know ASAP.

This treatment helps control all aphid vectors of BYDV, slug grain-hollowing damage and wireworm.

Only new 2 row variety added to the provisional recommended list is INFINITY

This received 102 for yield in trials with good all-round disease resistance good bushel and straw strength

 

 SPRAYER TESTING:

The deadline for testing your sprayer is fast approaching; the failure rate so far has been low with little being needed to bring sprayers up to speed, contact us for further details and to arrange your test or ring Sean O Flynn directly on 0871272334.
