Ecosyl 100

Noel Farrell

Tipperary Farm, Golden

Noel and his wife Joan run a 100-cow suckling enterprise at Rathgallen, Golden.

Noel makes all his silage in round bales. Last year, he used Ecosyl inoculant for the first time and the results were excellent.

“The quality of the silage was excellent. Tests showed a DMD of 75 and the palatability was really good and little or no wastage,” said Noel.

“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.
