2016 GRASS SILAGE IS CERTAINLY PROVING DIFFICULT TO GET GREAT PERFORMANCE FROM – ESPECIALLY 2ND CUTS.
They’re tending to be lower in D-Value and energy, and higher in fibre. This is leading to lower intakes and lower levels of performance than we might have anticipated.
THERE IS A POTENTIAL SOLUTION THOUGH…
VistaPre-T is a unique liquid pre-treatment that helps to unlock the potential tied up in the fibre by increasing the digestibility. This leads to bigger intakes, lower levels of fat mobilisation, increased milk production and higher constituents.
HERE’S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY:
“Since adding Pre-T to the mix, cows seem to be much more settled and content, and the muck is loads better too. We’ve seen an increase of around 1.5 litres of milk per cow per day” – Ian Wilson, Appleby
“We added VistaPre-T to our mix and within a week cows were much brighter, eating more forage and now we’ve gained about 2 litres of milk per cow per day” – Chris Ford, Crooklands
Dugdale Nutrition’s NIR4FARM silage tester now has the ability to predict the uplift on ME on individual silages, which allows us to predict the overall improvement we might be able to achieve. Speak to your DN sales representative to discuss the improvements you might see on your farm.
