Slurrycal is a dual purpose high ph lime blend for use in cubicles and livestock stalls. It is designed to provide high levels of protection against disease-causing bacteria in the cubicle and uniquely enhance the slurry.
Slurrycal has been developed in conjunction with several international technology companies to enhance the slurry when it is brushed down and mixed into the slurry tank/store.
Benefits of Slurrycal
• Creates a homogenous slurry
• Reduction in odours
• Breakdown and prevention of crusting
• Increased fertiliser value of slurry
• Reduction in agitation costs
• Promotes aerobic environment within slurry
• High pH helps protect animals from disease and infection
“Our milk solids sold per cow to September 30th has increased over 7% with 2 less cows than last year. This was achieved with no increase in meal fed and a decrease in nitrogen use. Slurrycal is helping in that nitrogen reduction. We are seeing a better response to slurry in terms of grass growth and a marked increase in clover in our fields; in some cases where clover had all but disappeared from paddocks. The power in the slurry is allowing us to reduce our chemical nitrogen use which encourages clover growth and the cows are responding in the milk tank I am very impressed with Slurrycal and am delighted that we made the switch to it”.
“It has the same drying capacity on the cubicle as the 10% blend and other cubicle products I have used and it is easier to work with because there is very little dust. It certainly does its main job of helping to keep cubicles dry, while also helping to maintain low SCC and low levels of mastitis. When I started to agitate and pump slurry, I knew that Slurrycal had done its job as promised on the slurry too. There was no crust whatsoever, and the tank was like it had been aerated. The time it takes to agitate is well back and it stays agitated for a long time. The slurry is darker in colour with a very evident reduction in smell. The response in terms of grass growth when the treated slurry was applied was very impressive – I would say that the slurry is giving a response similar to what you would get from a bag of 27.2.5. 5. The grass is a healthier, greener colour and re-growths are quicker.”
