DAIRY HYGIENE Milk sampling is the one sure way of identifying causes of increased Somatic cell counts on farm. By identifying the relevant bacteria present enables you to make appropriate decisions in combatting future mastitis problems and enables you to select products suitable to combating the bacteria present. We are offering this service free of charge backed up with on farm trouble shooting from GEA personnel.

HOME & DRY We are seeing a significant increase in the use of Home & Dry for treating grain this season. Farmers looking to cut costs on bought in feed are seeing the advantage of treating grain direct from the combine. Also no other product can reliably convert a 60% starch grain into an alkaline feed while increasing the protein by 4.5%. We are sourcing grain direct from the combine whole or treated delivered to your yard for more details contact us.

GRASS SEED There is both a feast and a famine depending on what part of the country you are farming in. Our Limerick/Tipperary customers have too much grass while our southern customers have little or no grass. Wherever you are farming consider Farm Store Top Five extend grass mixes for your reseeding. Three varieties topping the Irish recommended list are:

ABERCHOICE: highest yielding and highest DM late diploid on the Irish recommended list.
ABERGAIN: highest yielding spring and total growth of the entire recommended list.
TYRELLA: highest spring yielding late diploid on the Irish recommended list.
All Grass seed Mixes come with or without clover. All three varieties are late heading.
