    Amazing new technology

    Anybody used it? I have requested a trial on their website, whether or not I'm the wrong side of the world for them to be interested I'll wait and see.

    12 month Bull beef

    Budget on 1.5 tonne from 180kg, (over a weighbridge figure) include more if they’re coming to you younger. Do some accurate figures!.....some will die, some won’t grow as fast as you had hoped and the feed price can do a lot in 6 months. The muck back from them onto the arable ground is great...

    New diet for black and white bullocks

    I’ve seen your costings on the price tracker.... We have had finishers being fed 950kg of barley and 50kg of a 60% protein finishing blend (Beef 60) from DB Agriculture. If it wasn’t for a local mill making us a product similar we would still be feeding it. It is a great product for finishing...

    Feeding fodder beet

    In your experience of feeding beet have you found it to have a negative effect on intakes, or increase them with beet being very palatable?

    Feeding fodder beet

    If we look at it from another angle, that next year beet isn’t worth that figure and there isn’t the demand either. So for instance I’ve drilled 50 acres of beet and it does 35 tonne/acre, spring barley only yields 2.5 tonne to the acre. At 5:1 I have the equivilate of 350 tonne of barley off 50...

    Feeding fodder beet

    We would be looking to buy/grow a high dm variety. Potentially buying some in the new year to see how it feeds. If it works we would grow it to replace some of the barley in the ration, with a growing cost of say £550 per acre at 35 tonne, £15/tonne, 5kg to a kg of barley is a long way off...

    Feeding fodder beet

    If we were to replace some of the barley in our intensive barley finishing ration with beet at a ratio of 5 of beet to one of barley. Fully balanced with protein and fibre, what percentage of the barley could we replace, 50%,.....70%,... all of it.......?? Just trying to make things cheaper and...
