Improving productivity and reducing costs is the ultimate goal for livestock farmers facing sluggish prices and low margins. Recent research shows that introducing red clover into a silage crop can achieve significant advantages by reducing input costs and improving nutritional values.
With good ensiling techniques, Dynamite red clover can be successfully incorporated into balage. This provides flexible feeding options that deliver excellent nutritional requirements for different types of stock. Dynamite forage is less fibrous and highly digestible, which can lead to an increase in animal performance in terms of both milk and meat production. Introducing Dynamite red clover can reduce requirements for outside supplements providing a source of affordable homegrown protein. As an added benefit, it fixes nitrogen, leading to further savings in fertilizer costs.
Dynamite provides benefits in rotational systems by enhancing soil fertility and increasing profitability through higher yields.
