HOME & DRY PELLETS

The harvest is upon us and options for utilising grain direct from the combine are being explored,

Home & Dry is a reliable convenient and economical method of treating grain which has many advantages over other methods which include

  • Harvest window is 2-3 weeks during normal harvest.
  • Grain can be treated from 17-24pc.
  • More than 30kg/t can be added to increase protein content.
  • Grain is mechanically crimped and Home ‘N’ Dry Pellets applied.
  • Grain is covered and sealed using silage polythene covers to prevent ammonia loss, can be fed after 2 weeks
  • It can also be stored outdoors once moisture is excluded.
  • Increases grain protein levels by 4-5pc at recommended rate.
  • Alkaline pH (8-9) provides a buffer to improve rumen function.
  • Less likely to be attacked by birds or vermin due to alkaline nature.
  • Minimal storage loss.
  • Storage period of up to 12 months.
  • Feed rates: dairy up to 6kg, beef can be fed ad-lib.

We have customers with grain to sell ready treated and customers looking for grain supplied so contact us for further details.
