In a year when the grass is like gold dust, it is extremely important to take all measures to increase production before the growing season is over.

A priority for all farmers should be as the grass grown and used this fall in the form of grazing and silage.

The Strategy Of Fertilizer

Nitrogen should be applied in the amount of 25-30 units per acre on the grazing platform in accordance with the guidelines established by the Committee. Nitrogen will be a key driver for the growth of grass in the coming weeks with increasing soil moisture. You must make every effort to apply the fertilizer sooner rather than later to maximize the potential growth of the grass.

Teagsasc encourage farmers to empty slatted tanks and manure, if not already distribute, and use low emissions of slurry method, if possible.

The Committee also advises to use a mix of fertilizers for distribution, if the farmers all of the remaining reserves. There is no limitation on the content of Potassium (K price), it can be spread 365 days a year. Lime should be applied to acidic soils (pH

Reducing demand for autumn and winter

Cows that showed signs of heat or scanned not in calf should be culled from the herd, especially if there is a shortage of feed on the farm. This will lead to a decrease in demand for autumn grass and winter feed. Farmers need to scan the early identification of empty cows and culling those cows where feed is not enough. Unprofitable cows should also be culled to ease the pressure on the silage reserves.

The Committee also advises farmers to use a calculator to budget forage to identify any shortage of feed on the farm and to make informed decisions to fill the gap feed.
