How EM can improve your Calves
- 16 June 2017
Using EM in Calf Rearing has a number of benefits for both the animal and the system and will help limit problems generated from high density animal living. Intensive animal production systems involving housing of animals and high density living space, often create issues around animal health and odour problems. EM technology can be great tool for these intensive animal systems.
Free Range Egg Producer Talks about Impact EM has had on Operation
- 28 September 2015
Bill Tenbrook Free Range Egg Producer from Matamata talks about his EM Experience. He begun using EM to reduce the odour and improve the health of the animals.
Treating Calves with EM
- 23 July 2015
Using EM Animal this Calving will help ensure they get the best possible start and develop into a productive milker.
Livestock Control – Eliminating Odors
- 30 April 2015
Livestock and Dairy operations can produce very high levels of ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. Nitrogen in food sources produces ammonia and hydrogen sulfide gases during digestion that is released into the air by livestock as the food passes through excretion. These gases cause an obvious unpleasant odor and can also lead to health problems and physical damage to animals, adversely affecting overal
Increase in Feed Utilisation
- 15 January 2015
Low forage digestibility continues to limit the intake of available energy by ruminants. Studies have shown our inoculants have beneficial effects on cell wall constituents’ degradability and thus utilization of high fibre diets. Inclusion of a protein-rich feed ingredient in the formulation of ruminant rations enhances feed utilization.
Improved Rumen Function
- 8 January 2015
Microorganisms in the digestive tracts of ruminant livestock have a profound influence on the conversion of feed into end-products which have a huge impact on the animal. By improving rumen function we can see benefits in production and the health and vitality of the animal.
Decreased need for Antibiotics
- 1 January 2015
The use of antibiotics in animal nutrition has become a important part of maintaining production levels and decreasing risk within the herd. The negative is that they stimulate development of resistance from harmful micro-organisms.
Improvement in Animal Health
- 25 December 2014
Using EM animal will increase the number of healthy bacteria in the animals system. This increase will also play a role in increasing volatile fatty acids. It will also enhance the immune system of the animal.
Increase Animal Production with EM Animal and EM Silage
- 18 December 2014
EM Animal and EM Silage have been shown to promote growth, improve efficiency of feed utilization, protect the host from intestinal infection and stimulate immune responses in farm animals. This translates to an increase in production and animal performance.
Using EM on Your Dairy Farm
- 2 September 2014
The applications of Effective Micro-Organisms (EM) in dairy farming are numerous. The areas that we can influence positively with EM are: 1. Reduction of fertiliser inputs whilst maintaining production levels 2. Reduction of nitrogen leaching and volatilisation 3. Reduction of methane and greenhouse gas emissions from the environment including animals 4. Increase in clover production
Benefits of Using EM to make Silage
- 2 December 2013
It is easy to focus on the amazing benefits EM offers as a soil and plant inoculant and forget that it has many other uses that can be beneficial around the farm, garden or household. Using EM to make silage is one of the most beneficial of these applications.
