    That's why I asked about cost a good inoculant around £1.00ptt is every bit as good!

    Do you use Powerstart?
     
  8. I always used to when we had a lot of autumn calvers and made more clamp silage. Since moving to spring calving, making all bales and the milk price crashing I've stoped using any additive but we don't make nearly such good silage any more.

    Power start needs to be fairly damp silage to work. We've made it too dry 2 years running and had a lot of problems with it being unstable in the clamp.

    Perhaps I should do a TFF inoculant offer? :whistle:

    This is my own bespoke inoculant manufactured by one of the UK's leading bacterial companies. I've been selling inoculants since 1982. :eek:

    Active Ingredients:
    Lactobacillus plantarum DSMZ 16627 1 k20749
    Pediococcus acidilactici NCIMB 30005 1k21013 } 1.00 x 1011 cfu/g
    Lactobacillus paracasei NCIMB 30151 1k20748
    Plus Fructan

    If anyone would like to send me a PM with quantity required I'll work some figures out tomorrow.(y)

    Safesil,by far and away the best,unbelievable aerobic stability and minimal clamp losses.Just VERY heavy on the wallet.

    Would a group order yield much of a discount?

    On my first years use of great in grass inoculant and am quite happy with the results, it would have to be one hell of a sales pitch to persuade me to buy something more expensive!

    I try to do the best price possible on all my products so regardless of quantity everyone will be quoted the same price.(y)

    Ahh, can't comment on yours as I've never used them. If your happy with it is what matters I guess.

    From a financial standpoint though, per 1000T you are looking at spending over £3k more than I will be on mine.

    Do you think there is that much gain in yours.
