Spring pasture renewal using a seed drill

Introducing seed into a damaged pasture by direct drilling with a seed drill can improve damaged pastures and increase the density of the productive species. Pastures that had been oversown following winter pugging have been shown to produce more dry matter over a two year period than pasture that had not been resown. The aim of a direct seed drill is to place the seed directly in the residues .

Causmag Spreaders & Milk Fever.

Milk Fever is the most common metabolic condition that usually occurs around three days either side of calving. In the early lactation stages, a high producing cow’s calcium requirements exceed her ability to mobilize calcium reserves (bones) and absorb enough calcium from the diet. Milk fever may be seen in cows of any age but it is more common in high producing dairy cows over five years of age. .

When using a roller the main thing to check is that soils are dry enough to hold the tractor (duel tyres may help if possible). Secondly make sure the roller has the effect .
