DAIRY FEEDS We love to hear feedback on our products and services from our customers. We have recently received some fantastic reviews on some of our Wynnstay feed products, with customers telling us how they have helped them to address issues on farm. Here’s what they have told us... The Roberts Family, Fferam Y Llan Llangristiolus - Prepare Nuts Sion and Gareth Roberts are farming with their parents Mr and Mrs T Roberts at Fferam Y Llan Llangristiolys on Anglesey. Sion and Gareth explain why they are firm believers in the benefits of using Prepare Nuts.
“We have used Prepare Nuts from Wynnstay for the last four years, initially to stop retained cleansing and to reduce the use of antibiotics. After introducing the nuts to the diet, the cows are less stressed after calving and milk fever has almost gone completely, with only a few cases in older cows. Cows are reaching their peak performance straight after calving, this is hugely important for us with the transition period being so crucial for our 10,000 litres herd”.
Jonathan Evans, Berry Hill Farm - Prepare Nuts “We started to use Prepare Nuts six months ago to improve our transition cow performance. Since making the switch we have noticed a significant reduction in metabolic problems, in particular milk fever and retained cleansing. The system is simple, and our cows need minimal assistance calving”.
Ifan Evans, Tyddyn Cae - Start ‘N’ Wean and Heifer 600 Nuts “We start feeding Start ‘N’ Wean from three days old to all our autumn block calved youngstock. Calves are looking very well and healthy. Weaning goes smoothly, with no growth checks and we then move them on to Heifer 600 Nuts. Wynnstay starter and youngstock feeds help us maximise early development and growth which is really important for us, rearing fit and healthy replacements to fit into the calving block”.

LAMBING TOP TIPS FOR CREEP FEEDING
For those with well managed grazing systems and access to plentiful grass, creep feeding may not be required. However, to hit daily live weight gain (DLWG) targets and meet market requirements, reliance on low-quality forage or limited grazing won’t deliver the desired results, and it will pay to creep feed to bolster performance.
1. 2. 3. 4.
Be selective on which groups of lambs to creep feed for optimum ROI. The obvious lambs to creep are triplets and twins, but also consider lambs from young ewes, older ewes or ewes that are in poor condition. Early fed creep lambs are by far the most efficient convertors of feed. In the first 12 weeks, for every 3kg of creep feed fed, 1kg DLWG can be achieved. Post-weaning, this is reduced to between 5:1 to 10:1, so it can be more economical to feed lambs sooner rather than later. Creep feed at the right time. Once turned out to grass, lambs need two to three weeks to allow the rumen to adapt to forage.
Use creep strategically to complement grass growth. Those lambs on restricted grazing or limited grazing, will on average gain an extra kilo liveweight, for every 5-6kg of creep feed, compared to non-supplemented lambs.
The Wynnstay Lambmaster range is scientifically formulated with the optimal balance of energy and protein to achieve high growth rates, ensuring lambs can be finished quickly.

• Reduces air pockets to enhance effectiveness of conventional sheeting • Reduces top and shoulder losses in the clamp • Facilitates faster, more efficient fermentation • Suitable for several crops including grass, maize, whole crop silage and crimped grain • Fully recyclable Speak to your local Wynnstay Representative or Depot for information
Have You Considered Using A Thicker Sheet? Denhay Farms Ltd, based near Bridport, Devon have:
Ben Hughes, Farm Manager, sees the beneﬁts of using thicker sheets: “Several years ago, the farm was double sheeting with 100 micron sheets, clamp ﬁ lm and netting. The change was made to use one sheet at 125 micron, clamp ﬁ lm and netting, with impressive results”. Ben explains that the improved quality of silage in turn improved herd performance signiﬁ cantly and this performance is still on an upward curve. Ben says that all animals are bulling stronger, calving easier, giving stronger calves and hitting peak performance a whole month earlier than previous. The results are better all round, with improved quality sheeting; there is now minimum spoil and with the harvesting cost at £30/tonne, this soon covers any increased cost of individual sheets.
The clinching ﬁ nancial argument is only one sheet covering.
As Ben says: “10 minutes/man per pit saved 12 men x 7 cuts x 5 units You do the maths, while I save the money!” All prices exclude VAT

ANIMAL HEALTH Unpredictable Parasite Risks Makes Forecasting Service Vital When it comes to parasite control, decisions around treatments should be based around the risk on farm at that time, not what was done in the previous year. This has many benefits including: • Cost saving – by only treating stock when necessary
• Maximising production – by making sure stock are not being compromised by parasites • Protection – using anthelmintics when necessary will help minimise the development of resistance to the products
When it comes to parasite control, routine treatments must be replaced with risk-based assessments. One such service available to help with this is Parasite Watch.
What is Parasite Watch? Zoetis have developed a comprehensive parasite monitoring service which helps farmers and animal health care providers understand the parasite risk in any given area in the UK. Zoetis Parasite Watch uses a network of 26 farms to monitor worms & fluke. Each of the farms takes faecal egg count (FEC) tests every two weeks with results uploaded to parasitewatch.co.uk This data gives a real-time picture as to what is happening on the ground and combined with weather data is also used to provide a risk score for each area.
How can farmers use the data? Parasite information from each of the farms is uploaded to parasitewatch.co.uk, giving farmers an early warning sign that there could be a possible risk in their area. They can use the monitoring service, along with data from their own farm such a faecal egg counts to discuss worming plans with their animal health care provider. If you sign up to receive alerts, we will send you an email to let you know about a change in the risk status.
Key benefits of Parasite Watch • Regular updates providing alerts as to what the parasite risk is • Farmer: Allows you to discuss the situation in your area with your animal health care provider • Animal Health Care Provider: Provide local advice to your farmer as to the risks and appropriate management options available

ANIMAL HEALTH Understanding the Benefits of Season-Long Worm Control in Cattle Planning worm control prior to turnout is vital to prevent cattle from becoming infected at grass, which could lead to subsequent production losses. The following questions can help to understand when to treat cattle and with what product: • • • • •
What is the likely worm burden? When are cattle being turned out? Are they being grazed away from the farm? What are the handling facilities like? Do you want the convenience of treating and handling once?
Where using a long-acting wormer is beneficial
There are some clear situations where protecting stock with a long-acting wormer such as CYDECTIN® 10% LA or Autoworm® will be useful; • Where there is a potential threat from worms and the animals are being grazed away from the farm with no handling facilities • Where stock is not being checked regularly – e.g. on hill land • Where pasture is known to be high risk for parasites, but there are no alternative grazing areas • Where you are treating strategically to reduce pasture contamination • Where you want the convenience of only having to treat and handle once within the season Additional benefits include:
• Offering peace of mind stock is protected • Less stress for animals as they are only handled once • Ensuring all animals are treated correctly without the risk of missing follow up doses
Using products responsibly
Anthelmintic resistance is a common problem in sheep parasites, and it is now being seen more often in cattle worms. Risk factors for the development of anthelmintic resistance include under dosing, unnecessary treatments and repeated use of products. To help prevent resistance it is important to use the product in the correct way and at the correct time. CYDECTIN LA or Autoworm, for example, should be given at turnout to help reduce the level of pasture contamination throughout the grazing season. It’s important you discuss products and treatment plans with your animal health care provider and choose the product most suitable for your herd and the parasite challenge on your farm.

GRASSLAND MANAGEMENT A proactive grassland management programme is essential to producing quality home-grown forage. Attention to detail, from seed selection to feeding can increase both yield and quality. To get the most from your forage there are key targets and management techniques that can help achieve optimal utilisation and maximise performance from forage.
Ensure that fields are tested at least every three years between September and February to check P and K availability as well as soil pH, this is especially important before reseeding a new ley. If pH is below the optimum level, apply lime to ensure N, P and K nutrient levels are not restricted.
It is advisable for between 10-15% of the farm to be reseeded each year, selecting from the best seed varieties in the Grass and Clover Recommended List. When selecting the mixture consider soil type, field location, seasonal growth, and end requirement (grazing, silage or both).
For a newly established ley control weeds early using a broad-spectrum herbicide. This provides a clean start for the new ley and can achieve 100% control of docks, saving both time and money in additional herbicide applications later.
Test and treat each field individually, rather than a blanket approach. Field specific plans can be created to deliver accurate applications of N, P and K.
Measure grass growth regularly throughout the growing season, using a sward plate meter to measure grass height. Record the measurements to compare the performance of each field and how much forage is being produced in total across the grazing platform, to accurately allocate the demands of the grazing stock. Recording of data identifies the worst performing fields, giving priority for reseeding the following seasons.
