Testimonials

My cattle killed out very well, I would say a sub-grade better. I reckon I have reduced my costs by a minimum of 10% since including OceanFeed. The whole county should be using it.

Projected Savings:

Fertility

Farmers including OceanFeed™ Bovine HPI in the herds’ diet have experienced a major reduction with the problem of cows not cleaning after calving. In one case, it dropped from 7 out of 50, to 1 out of 62. Farmers have also experienced cows bulling again quicker, two to three weeks sooner than previous. Overcoming these fertility challenges allows the potential for one extra calf for every eight cows in the herd, and would contribute substantially to reducing calving cycles and assisting in efficient herd growth.

Milk protein

If you take the 8.8% protein increase (the lower of the 2 results from our trials), and apply it to an economic model, a dairy farmer with a herd size of 75 cows has the potential to make over €4,000 extra profit per year from their better quality milk.
