Busy putting together talk for farmer meeting on Tuesday with 40 dairy and beef farmers in Gwent.

Talk will focus on rising feed prices and opportunities to make better use of forage and alternative feeds to minimise feed costs.

We will look at latest developments in maize varieties, update on grass mixtures for this year and look at alternative forages such as stubble turnips and fodder beet.

Should be a good night with lively discussion

Drought Buster Blend

With grazing still short in the south of the uk and moist feed supply tight, we have sourced an alternative feed option in the form of a drought buster blend, 16% protein and high in energy it can be used to supplement grazed grass at a very competitive price of around £155 per tonne depending on load size and location. This will ensure milk yield and quality is maintained and cow condition and fertility do not suffer.

Silage making in full swing

With silage making in the UK now in full swing, dairy farmers need to ensure they use a good quality additive such as Ecosyl 100 or Sil ALL to ensure they get a strong fermentation and well made silage. Pre cut fresh grass analysis is showing moderate sugar levels and high nitrates due to the cold nights and cool days we have had, and also in some areas the long dry spell during April. This has led to fertilizer nitrogen being taken up slowly and in many case not converted to true protein in the grass.
