We’ve got a facial eczema solution for your farm

 

Whatever farm system you are running, SealesWinslow have got you covered with a range of zinc-based products to help aid the prevention of facial eczema. To protect your animals, and your farm’s productivity and profitability, here are three things to keep in mind over the coming months:

Animal Health

Grazing residuals

When grazing to a low residual and there is a high amount of dead matter, there's more chance of animals picking up the spores at the base of the sward.

 

Animal Health

Spore counts

Low spore counts over several days cause the same accumulated liver damage as one day with a high spore count

 

Animal Health

Temperature

Three consecutive nights with temperatures over 12ºC, and enough moisture in the pasture, accelerates spore growth.
