Forage Challenges in La Nina Year

La Nina year brings great opportunity….and maybe some challenges

 

The obvious benefit of a season with moisture is fodder growth. This is a great opportunity, but experience tells us we may also see fungal challenges arise as warmth and moisture coincide. The type of things we expect to see are:

 

  • Low quality/spoiled silage or hay with high mould loads
  • Pasture rusts from fungi growth within the sward
  • Perennial rye grass toxicosis (staggers) as perennial pastures hit summer periods
  • Grain quality challenges

 

The common outcome from all these challenges is mycotoxins in your feed.

 

Elitox is a proven tool in managing these challenges. Its mode of action as both a biological deactivator of toxins, as well as a traditional binder improves its efficacy. Its data set of both local and overseas independent trial work supports its efficacy.

 

We’ve had great success with Elitox with 20 years of good results so if you have any questions on how Elitox can help you feel free to call us.
