All Weather Formula
This product has been developed to aid sheep or cattle grazing highly productive Legume dominant pastures, Forage crops or sown Oat or other Cereal crops.
Hungry and undernourished stock are always at risk when grazing highly fertilised pastures, always allow time for stock to adapt to any new pasture, particularly when changing from a grass dominant pasture to a highly productive legume based pasture. Although nitrate concentrations are expected to be high, nitrate or nitrite is often times only one of several factors that influence depressed growth and feed conversion efficiency in pasture fed stock. Hi-N-Graze has been developed to aid young animals, better cope with the influx of high quality feed. Healthy animals are less likely to be affected by these highly fertilised or productive pastures than animals in poor health. Internal parasites that cause anemia will increase susceptibility to nitrate problems.
Problem plants that are commonly involved in a loss of production due to nitrate accumulation are Capeweed, Forage Oats, Young Annual ryegrass, Short Rotation Ryegrass, Young, lush Cereal Crops, Volunteer Brassicas etc.
Grazing to soon after heavy fertiliser application, greater than 50kg N/ha. Or after drought or prolonged dry spell when natural soil nitrogen has not been extracted. Stock grazing newly sown pastures that have had vigorous
Growth with nitrogen becoming available in the soil from excessive organic matter breakdown.
Avoid rapid change in diet from grass dominant pasture to forages or legume based pastures. Never allow animals access to suspect pastures when hungry. Do not graze animals for 18-21days after fertilizer application. Animals tend to select “rubbish or poor quality hay” or dead leaf matter, when affected, so, a bale of rough hay left in the corner of a paddock that has been picked at is usually a good sign of elevated nitrates.
Always supply High-N-_Graze with good quality hay prior to animals being allowed access to lush pastures. A slow adaption process of 4 hours grazing time a day and ,adding 1 hour per day over 5 days is recommended.
High-N-Graze contains significant quantities of palatable, Magnesium, Sulphur, Calcium, Sodium etc and also includes high levels of Vitamin A
