I have tested the Bio-Boost soil biology enhancer on some fields on my farm since 2017. In that time soil P & K levels have risen significantly despite very low application levels. I have been incorporating straw and land has not been ploughed for 20 years. Fields have been responding more like fields close to ley rather than old tillage ground.
We have been using a slurry and soil biology program as advised by FuturAg for the past three years. Our aim is to improve soil health which is important for long term sustainability and profitability. This is an approach that yields long term benefits which are now coming to fruition. Overall, the progress made in three years has been very positive.
It is clear to see from my cows that the investment I have made in soil health and soil biology with FuturAg is paying its way. My cows are more settled and content, hold condition better and last year we had exceptional fertility and SCC. We are growing better quality grass by making use of biologically treated slurry, using less nitrogen and ensuring soil biology is fed correctly. The grass we are growing is putting a shine on our cows like never before and they are repaying us with excellent milk solids and improved health.
