SUMMER TEAT DIP:
HEXAKLEENE R is the only teat dip registered on the Irish market to contain DEET fly repellent. DEET is registered all over the world as the leading fly repellent and can be found in all market leading formulations including humans.
Hexaklene R also contains 5000ppm of chlorohexidine and a high level of emollients to maintain teat condition.
With rain finally arriving in useful quantities all spring sown crops will get a boost as temperatures are high. However many crops are struggling in particularly the later sown crops. K2 and Ceraide are excellent at increasing tiller numbers and can be applied with the weed spray.
A new addition to the scheme is chemical storage. This is something most tillage men will have in place but very few others. A chemical container must be bunded and capable of storing the sufficient levels of chemical that will be on the farm at any one time.
We are now stocking the JFC chemical store and it comes in 2 sizes see in store for details.
Also don’t forget to get your sprayer tested before cross compliance season begins. Contact Sean for further details 087-1272334.

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.

PeatBed is a new and innovative cattle bedding material that has been specially formulated for use on dairy farms, particularly on cubicles, but can also be used for calf bedding and loose housing for any type of animal.
PeatBed is made from super dry, super fine peat that is blended with a liming agent.
The peat is harvested from bogs using specially designed machinery. The peat is then brought to our factory where it is screened to obtain the optimum particle size (0-3mm) and then mixed with a liming agent.
PeatBed can be delivered in bulk or in semi bulk bags and can be delivered nationwide.
Contact The Farmstore for more info on 023 8841911 or email email@example.com
Also find out about Fiber bed for use in poultry, horses and cattle bedding.
Keep the animal dry
Of all of the available bedding materials, peat has the highest absorbency factor with the ability to absorb up to 10 times its own weight. The Super Fine particle size of Peat Bed allows for maximum coverage in a cubicle shed thereby keeping the cows dry and comfortable.
Keep the animal clean
Because of its high absorbency, the cows will therefore be cleaner, and this greatly reduces the bacterial count and potential for mastitis.
Maintain a healthy environment
The special formulation of Peat Bed, with a pH above 8, keeps the harmful bacteria count as low as possible. The highly absorbent peat keeps the animal dry and therefore cleaner.
Cattle spend more than half their lives lying down. A dairy cow lies down and rises around 16 times every day, which means between 5 000 to 7 000 times in a year! The cushioning effect of Peat Bed helps to increase the level of comfort whilst reducing animal injuries and abrasions.
The peat is harvested during the summer months and stored under cover until required. Peat Bed is then manufactured on a large scale using its own dedicated screening, mixing and production line. Producing large volumes is key to reducing the cost per unit. . This makes Peat Bed the most cost effective material.
Safe to use
Peat is a natural product with no toxins or contaminants. There is no risk of any foreign objects getting into the product, which may be harmful to animals. From a farmer’s point of view, the product is very clean, dry and easy to handle and very easy to work with when spreading on cubicles.
Easy to spread on land
Due to its very fine particle size, the peat remains suspended in the slurry when in a tank, therefore it is easy to extract from the tank and to spread on the land. With its high pH and soil conditioning characteristics, the use of Peat Bed adds value to the slurry for spreading on land.
Peat Bed comes in different bag sizes ( 1.0m3 bag, 2.0m3 bag) or in bulk truck loads. These bags are easily stackable on pallets. The product will last for months in storage without any deterioration in quality.
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.
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
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.
