Biotal

We stock and sell the Biotal range of inoculants and yeasts.  Biotal started producing inoculants over 20 years ago; they feel that forage quality is vital to ensure optimum efficiency within a ruminant feeding system.

Biotal believe that the aim of each forage system is to produce optimum quality and home grown forage for livestock during the winter.  Whether from grass silage or additional complementary forages, the crucial part of the process, is to provide the right blend of inputs to ensure healthy livestock with maximum production levels.

Biotal have produced a range of inoculants and yeast to suit every type of forage system.  These products help to increase forage digestibility, enhance animal performance, and improve silage stability.

Biotal Axphast Gold

is for low dry matter grass silage, it improves fermentation, increase digestibility and reduces effluent.

Biotal Axcool Gold

is for high DM grass silage; it reduces yeast and mould, reduces heating and improves aerobic stability.

Biotal Wholecrop Gold

is for fermented wholecrop, improves aerobic stability, increases digestibility and increases dry matter intake.

Biotal Wholecrop Legume

for fermentated legumes, it increases palatability, improves digestiabilty and improves fermentation.

Biotal Maizecool Gold

for maize silage, reduces heating, increases digestibility and improves aerobic stability.

Biotal Biocrimp

for crimped cereals and legumes, inhibits yeast and mould, reduces heating and improves starch digestibility.

We can also offer a range of rumen specific yeasts, for dairy and beef cows, these yeasts help to reduce acidosis, improve digestions and increase feed efficiency.

Biotal Toxisorb

contains the first live yeast strain approved for feeding to Dairy cows.  Toxisorb will combat problems associated with Mycrotoxiam in feed and forage.

We are an approved stockist of Silostop Oxygen Barrier Film Silage sheets. Silostop is recognised worldwide as the leading oxygen barrier film, with unique properties which are proven to be 100 times more effective than conventional silage sheeting.

Benefits –

• Surface spoilage is virtually eliminated

• Reduction in labour time as it is quick and easy to use and no need to remove waste

• Dry matter loss is reduced by up to 50% in the top 1 meter of silage compared to conventional silage sheeting

• Aerobic stability is increased by up to 2 and a half days

• Films are thinner than conventional plastics therefore cheaper to recycle (1/3 of the weight)

Silostop Black and Orange

Silostop Orange is a clear 45 micron film, it is not UV stable and requires covering with a Silostop anti UV cover to protect it from sunlight and physical damage.

Silostop Black is UV stable but must be protected from physical damage with a Silostop Open net

Silostop Max is a multi-layer, light and very strong silage film, making it easy to handle and apply. It is an impermeable, complete orange and black film that stops the entry of oxygen, being 80 microns thick it is suitable for larger applications, however still needs protection from physical damage.
