Trials show that on average, Ecosyl treatment results in 1.2 litres extra per cow per day or a 15.2% improvement in daily live weight gain.
Backed by 33 independent beef and dairy trials, Ecosyl are the most proven range of silage additives in the world.
Better silage quality = more milk from forage. You invest a lot of time in your silage so it’s vital you retain as much of it’s nutritional value as possible.
Volac and Ecosyl have over 40 years experience in forage conservation and young animal nutrition and we want to share it with you.
In previous years, we fed the autumn calving cows 2kg of meal a day over the winter. Last winter, because of the better quality silage, we were able to reduce this to 1 kg a day and the cows went out in the spring in probably better condition.
