BetterGrass™

Many of the grassland areas in the UK are deficient in essential trace minerals, which means either animal health is being compromised or you have to feed stock supplements.

 

Not only that but often palatability is poor and stock do not do as well as they should. 

BetterGrass Liquid is an essential application for your grassland that includes everything your grass needs to produce mineral-rich grass, thus helping you to raise healthy stock. It is especially formulated for your grassland providing ALL the essential minerals required PLUS biological activators which include the magnificent Megabactors. These natural micro-organisms include Bacillus Megatarium which is the natural phosphate fixing microbe working in the soil to feed your plant.

BENEFITS

  • Supplies ALL essential minerals

  • Formulated specifically to improve grass quality

  • Grass fed cows produce a higher quality milk

  • Grass fed beef produces a higher quality meat

  • Easy to apply, NO special equipment required

FEED THE GRASS AND THE GRASS WILL FEED THE STOCK

It is ALWAYS better for your animals to get their mineral requirement in the right balance from every bite they take.

 

The above statement is all very well but how good is the grass they are eating?

If the grass is lacking in minerals then your livestock will not do as well as they should, consequently the end result will be inferior stock. Not only that but it will cost you more to produce.

BetterGrass Liquid is designed specifically to improve the nutritional quality of your grass for the benefit of your livestock. It is no different to humans, if the minerals in the food you eat are not in balance, you will not feel as well as you would otherwise.

Did You Know:

  • 75% of ALL UK grass is too LOW in Selenium

  • 80% is too LOW in Cobalt

  • 60% is too LOW in Iodine

  • 60% is too LOW in Magnesium

Not Only That But:

  • 40% is too HIGH in Potassium

 

It is these imbalances that cause ill-health and low yields.

Results to date show improved balance of all minerals, with high sugar levels. Simply put, it IS BETTER GRASS and stock love to eat it.

Feed the soil and the soil will feed the grass / Feed the grass and the grass will feed the stock

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A good quality grass needs 20 or more minerals and your stock needs all of these  if they are to enjoy good health and produce as they should. Increasing mineral levels in grass will improve the immune system in the animals that eat it.

Throughout the UK we help farmers to grow better grass, but what do we mean by ‘better grass’?

You can grow plenty of grass with high inputs of nitrogen and plenty of rain but how good is the quality of that grass?

Will it help your stock produce more milk, or fatten lambs and beef animals?

Will it keep your stock healthy?

Do the animals actually like the grass they have to eat?

 

When you use The Better Grass Program you improve nitrogen, phosphate, potassium (NPK), calcium, magnesium, sodium, boron, sulphur, manganese, copper, zinc, iodine, selenium, cobalt, PLUS oxygen, hydrogen and carbon.

So your stock gets ALL of their mineral requirements in every bite of grass they eat.

 

The BetterGrass Liquid ALSO contains a specific range of beneficial micro-organisms that will release ‘locked-up’ phosphate in the soil and make it ‘available’ to the plant. This increases phosphate levels in the forage, improves sugars and hence palatability for the stock, so they really do get everything they need, from every bite of grass they take.

Above is a typical mineral analysis of a regular grass crop.

It shows the imbalances of the minerals in the grass. Note the HIGH potassium, LOW magnesium and the VERY LOW levels of selenium, cobalt and  iodine.

 

How are your animals going to get these essential minerals if they are not in the forage they are eating?

Animals should spend large amounts of time lying down. If they are continuously wandering about the paddock they are NOT getting the correct nutrition.

What is in it that makes it so good?

 

The Fact Is:

  • Grass is the most important crop of all in the UK   

  • Trace elements are essential including selenium, cobalt, copper, iodine

  • The single most important nutrient is calcium     

  • Soil pH does NOT reveal the crop’s need for calcium

  • 74% of UK pastures are deficient in selenium

  • 51% of UK pastures are deficient in  cobalt

  • Magnesium is important for your stock’s metabolism

  • Phosphorus is important for your stock’s bone development
