    16% Beef Nut in 25kg bag @ €280 ton. I would have thought bulk would be a good bit cheaper.

    Paying 285 beef ration 16 % protein in ton bags


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,159 ✭✭✭ Cavanjack


    €240 for a high maize coarse ration

    That rise was being talked about before the fire, i suppose the fire will put on another €15 also.
    Then €10 cause Brexit, another tenner cause Covid and another tenner towards a new merc for the sales manager at the mill.

    €280 per tonne bags, 16% nut.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,904 ✭✭✭ Base price


    €265 for 15% crunch collected in December. Price has probably gone up since then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,227 ✭✭✭✭ Bass Reeves


    Unless you are feeding weanlings or finishing cattle it is no longer economical to feed ration to cattle. With present beef prices and ration prices finishing is a loss making business. Strong weanlings over 300kgs should not require ration either unless silage is pure crap. Silage and minerals is adequate for all cattle over 300kgs.

    If you are buying a ration at sub 250/ton in bulk it's very unlikely to have decent ingredients. Milks may have reduced bagged pric s as much as possible as bagging plants are well paid for now. However again it unlikely you are getting anything decent in a bag.

    Paid 8:50 per bag delivered from dairygold for maize munch, usually get bulk but didn't suit this time


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,904 ✭✭✭ Base price


    €200/ton for rolled barley and oats in bulk bags collected which is up €10/ton on December price. Ground maize €225/ton bulk bags collected and they held the price of the 15% crunch at €265/ton. Payment on collection.

    There is no value out there bought Barley/ maize/ hulls for finishing bullocks on grass at 255/ ton. Minimum to be taken was 4 ton.

    Ya was told it's going up as well. That mix was costing 200/ ton 4-5 years ago. I be splitting my calves at that price. I definitely be setting up a grazing system with a back fence. See a lad and he has the younger calves ahead of the older ones. There is about 10 young calves and 40 older ones.

    If calves are 16 weeks+ and have plenty of grass in a strip grazing set up I be tempted to give them grass only. Even at over 14 weeks I be trying to feed them a good quality 14% beef ration instead of a calf ration

    It won’t be at 255 for long with maize after breaking 7 dollars a bushel, meal prices are going to be scary high next autumn/winter looking at future markets

    Glanbias gain wean and build 16% protein is retailing at €365 loose collected.



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,227 ✭✭✭✭ Bass Reeves


    At them prices lads should concentrate on making descent late May silage and feed no ration to weanlings or stores. It's not economical. 2 kgs/ day,that is 65-75 euro for 100 days.

    Rep rang yesterday to tell me ration going up €15 and nuts €20 next week. With regards to some of the fancy named product, you should check the ingredients as some of them put more effort into dressing up there products instead of using the best of ingredients



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,824 ✭✭✭ Dunedin


    I give 1kg to weanlings from November to February (120 days). Works out €38 a head. Works for my set up.

    depends on type of cattle to. Big difference in feeding to U/R grade continental cattle versus and O or P grade.



  • Registered Users Posts: 362 ✭✭ Theheff


    Agreed. Good to give weanling a kg of good ration per day along with good silage. I find there all the better for it and trive better when they get to grass. Also has minerals etc that is important too.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,824 ✭✭✭ Dunedin


    I have an area cordoned off outside the shed with three troughs to let them out. The meal makes them fierce quiet also - like suck calves which makes handling them later on very easy.

    10th May is my first cut silage date weather permitting.



  • Registered Users Posts: 362 ✭✭ Theheff


    See what way the spring comes before we think about cutting silage. Fertilizer cost will be a big factor this year. Alot lads may graze first with hope of prices dropping later in the spring or early summer.

    €280 for a 12% finishing ration and €300 for a 16% nut.

    Anything going back to grass is getting good first cut silage and no meal and doing good on it.
