We can't believe that as we write this newsletter, it is November already
- where has this year gone, or are we just getting old!
Following on from our December newsletter, we have been monitoring
3 local customers, who have been using Amaferm since the beginning of
December. Nothing else on the farms has changed feeding wise, other
than adding Amaferm into the diet at 100gms per cow per day.
- Farmer 1 has seen an increase in milk litres by 1.6
- Farmer 2 has seen an increase in milk litres by 1.9
- Farmer 3 has seen an increase in milk litres by 2.1
Costing just a 1/3 rd of a litre, it has been
very profitable for these 3 customers. Why not give it a try and see
the difference it can make for you.
The feed additive Amaferm has been
developed specifically to improve fibre digestion...
WHAT ADVANTAGE IS THERE TO FEEDING YEAST?
Many dairy and beef farmers are seeing the advantages
that the feeding of yeast brings. If the diet within the rumen of the
animal is either very wet, low in energy, low in fibre or too starchy
and is unbalanced, the pH within the rumen is not stabilised and the
bacteria cannot absorb the fibre content correctly. As a result of this
you can see depressed appetites, the lowering of milk quality, loss
of liveweight gain in beef animals, acidosis, and associated problems
with feet and overall health issues.
By feeding a yeast product it will stabilise the rumen pH with the
result that you will see less acidosis, increased yields, positive effects
on milk quality, and improvement in overall health and an increase of
daily liveweight gain in beef animals and youngstock.
This last year we have seen a dramatic increase in sales of our yeast
Product with positive results
in all cases. For a cost of 5p per cow per day you can expect an improvement
in your margins as well as the added benefits of contented healthy cows.
With its very low feeding rate you do not have to pay to have full pallet
load, as you may have to with products fed at 100gms per day, with the
added benefit of containing protected selenium and zinc.
- Dairy cows 25gms per cow per day
- Beef 4 gms per 100lg l.w per day
- For a herd of 100 cows you will feed 2½ kgs per day
- For a herd of 200 cows you will feed 5kgs per day
- Pack Size 20kg bags
- Minimum delivery 10 bags
- A minimum delivery of 10 bags for 100 cow herd
will last 80 days
- A minimum delivery of 10 bags for 200 cow herd
will last 40 days

South American weather patterns still dominate the market. Hot dry
and whatever the speculators and shippers can make up. This will continue
for the shot/medium term. So the market will remain very volatile so
keep in touch with the office and let us know your requirements, so
that we can give you a ring when there is a break in the market.
Supply is very tight until April. The main Rapemeal shipper is oversold
and this has lead to the spot market trading at nearly £200/t.
May onwards seem a little more reasonable than at present, again keep
in touch with the office for regular updates.
Both products on the spot and going forward for the summer, are looking
very competitive against Sugarbeet. Today they are trading at around
£30 - £40 per tonne cheaper than Sugarbeet. Both offer a
good source of digestible fibre, for this coming spring.
Tonnage is currently being put into stores, so stock will be available
for the Summer period. Good source of digestible fibre, but does look
expensive against Citrus & Soya Hulls.
To discuss any of these products, along with your other on farm requirements
