Kerr Farm Supplies to mark start of 2021 grazing season
Ballinamallard-based Kerr Farm Supplies is to host two open days to mark the start of the 2021 grazing season in Co Fermanagh.
The events will be held on Friday April 9th and Saturday April 10th. Both events will be hosted in association with HVS Animal Health.
“We plan to be open from 9.00am and 6.00pm on the Friday and the Saturday,” confirmed Warren Kerr, the owner of Kerr Farm Supplies.
Preparing for turnout will be the focus on both days with special offers available on Liquid Gold Cattle, the unique trace mineral and vitamin drench from HVS.
Liquid Gold Cattle contains all of the micro minerals and vitamins required by beef cattle and sheep with Zinc, Manganese, Copper and Iron made available solely in a chelated form.
Warren Kerr confirmed a strong demand for the Liquid Gold range throughout the Co Fermanagh area.
He continued: “Liquid Gold Cattle also contains nucleotides, which act to increase red blood cell numbers, a key factor in determining animals’ ability to grow. The reality is that cattle can only perform to the level of the greatest deficiency or imbalance in their diet.
“All forage based diets contain imbalances and consequently most stock never exceed 75% of their genetic potential in terms of growth, fertility, development of immunity. Early spring grass can be deficient in a wide range of minerals and trace elements.”
Warren further explained: “Liquid Gold Cattle acts to ensure that young stock at grass are not restricted in terms of meeting their full growth potential.”
He added: “Young beef cattle and dairy stock have tremendous capacity to grow-on, once they are put out to grass: the challenge is that of making sure that all of this potential is realised.
“Young stock going out to grass over the coming weeks will also benefit greatly if they are drenched with Liquid Gold Cattle now.”
Extensive trials have been carried out with youngstock drenched with HVS Liquid Gold Cattle prior to turn out. They confirm that additional liveweight gains of 9.9 kilos per head can be achieved after just 54 days at grass.
The difference amounted to an extra 20.4 kilos per head after 104 days. This gain in performance is worth an extra £40 per animal in today’s beef prices. So it is more than significant.
