Dairy Cattle

YaraMila Stock Booster increases selenium levels in grass

A farm trial conducted in Kildare in 2014 compared the selenium levels in grass treated with either a standard NPK fertilizer (YaraMila Supergrass) with an NPK fertilizer containing Selenium (YaraMila Stock Booster). The levels of Selenium in the YaraMila Stock Booster treatments increased in the first cut silage by 275% and in the second cut by 450%

Grazing Cattle
