    Slurry application to silage/grazing

    2nd cut coming off next week. With the dry conditions, am I better to dribble bar or splash plate the slurry on? About 1 tanker/acre. Very dry here with typically very little rain in June/July. Reasonably thick stuff. Plan will be to graze aftermaths about 5 to 6 weeks after cutting. TIA

    I polished the slurry tanker…

    So I had a spare couple of hours and thought I’d try and freshen up the paint on the tanker before it goes in for its dribble bar.

    Dysect on young lambs

    How early would you put dysect on a lamb, is it a bit strong for lambs a couple of days old? Better to use spot-on instead? Wanting to treat them as they go out of the lambing park, usually ticks on them by marking and I think the stress of marking makes them susceptible to whatever nasties the...
