This Week update

Growth rate on grass responds to rain 12 days ago – see the graph on the link above

1st Cut Silage early cuts have gone well- Remember if you need additive please let me know – I am carrying stock all the time at present

Also in aftermaths we have been rejuvenating a number of Fields to boost production for future cuts with new Grasses at 8-10 kg/Acre of rejuvenation grass seed – these are mainly Tetraploid type Grass mixtures which have the ability to compete with the existing sward

Also looking at soon direct drilling some mixed species leys in to old grassland (and spraying off existing grass ),Species are Hybrid / Cocksfoot/ Timothy and PRG grasses plus clover this should give a longer grazing period for grazing sheep.

Crypto Occur is still doing well as a Treatment for Cypto in calves feed from day 3 to day 10 with milk powder or whole milk.
