Biological Fertiliser Uses in Pasture Cropping
Regenerative grazing practices have gained significant attention in recent years due to their potential to improve soil health and enhance the quality of forage.
One key aspect of regenerative grazing is the use of Biological Fertiliser, which play a crucial role in enhancing soil biology.
Biological Fertilisers are 100% natural bio-stimulant and mineral soil amendments. These amendments introduce beneficial microorganisms and nutrients that contribute to a thriving soil ecosystem.
By building biology in the soil, regenerative farmers can create an environment that supports healthier plant growth.
Nutrient Dense Forage
The enhanced biology in the soil has several benefits for forage production. Firstly, it leads to a higher nutrient density in the forage. The increased microbial activity helps break down organic matter and release essential nutrients that are readily available for plant uptake. This results in more nutrient-rich forage, providing better nutrition for grazing animals.
Strong Plant Growth and Resilience
Additionally, regenerative grazing practices that focus on biological soil amendments can help reduce disease susceptibility in forage crops. A healthy and diverse underground ecosystem promotes natural disease suppression mechanisms by encouraging beneficial microorganisms that compete with or antagonize harmful pathogens.
Overall, incorporating biological soil amendments into regenerative grazing systems can significantly improve both the quality and resilience of forage crops.
By nurturing a thriving underground ecosystem, farmers can produce nutrient-dense forage while reducing reliance on synthetic inputs and promoting sustainable agriculture practices.
Pasture Cropping was first developed by NSW Australian sheep farmer Colin Seis. The primary principal of pasture cropping is to have 100% ground cover 100% of the time, to ensure photosynthesis and biological activity in the soil.
Pasture cropping plants cereal crops like oats and barley into perennial pasture rather than rotated fields. And, it does not require the killing off of cover crops or tilling, but instead the perennical pasture becomes the cover crop. Colin Seis Webinar about Pasture Cropping.
How to Use Liquid Seaweed Supplements for Animals
Use regularly or at times of the year when feed quality is poor, or when there are higher demands on the animal.
SONIC Liquid Seaweed can be added to feed or water, or administered undiluted as a drench.
It can also be used as an inoculant on hay, sprayed over pastures or may be used through an automatic dispensing system that dispenses the liquid directly into bails.
Livestock Drench Dilution: neat-1:20
Daily/Weekly Dilution: 1:20-1:100
Liquid Seaweed Livestock Feed Supplement
Minerals are needed year round by animals for optimum production, health and fertility. Supplementing livetsock with broad spectrum minerals can help stimulate metabolism and feed efficiency, which can assist health and body condition.
SONIC Liquid Seaweed for Livestock contains organic Kelp, activated with natural probiotic cultures. The full spectrum of minerals and trace elements in Seaweed, optimise mineral nutrition, and the natural probiotics help to optimise digestion. Good digestive functions, lead to increased nutrient absorption and better feed conversions.
