Dynamite In Stock

Uniblock Dynamite Lick Buckets

Dynamite Animal Lick is a high sugar lick that increases forage intake and maximises the potential of your animal stock. This is made possible by a new patent pending process that takes the energy from 1.3 ton of molasses and put into a ton of Dynamite Animal Lick. The lick is also ideal for preventing twin lamb disease and ketosis.

How Does Dynamite Animal Lick Work?

Licking: The action of an animal licking increases the amount of saliva which naturally shields the stomach from acid produced when the rumen’s natural bacteria breaks down the sugar that has been consumed.
Sugar Content: Normally a diet of highly digestible sugars can affect your animals negatively by damaging their rumen micro population, but Dynamite Animal Lick uses a little and often approach. This approach together with the increase of saliva helps to increase the natural bacteria in the rumen which will make your animals more productive.
Increase In Natural Rumen Bacteria: The increase in natural bacteria that Dynamite Animal Lickcauses means the animal can process more food. The extra food intake will increase milk yield and meat production from your animals.
Mineral Supplements: Dynamite Animal Lick contains trace elements to ensure your animals stay healthy and productive.

Bimectin Plus at Killyless Stores

Here at Killyless Stores we like to ensure that our customers have the best options for all their farming needs. We are happy to stock Bimectin Plus at Killyless Stores. See the product description below for more information.

Bimectin Plus is an ideal choice for broad spectrum control of internal and external parasites in cattle. This 3-in-1 injection for chronic fluke, worms and lice contains the potent anthelmintics Ivermectin (10mg./ml) and Clorsulon (100mg/ml) and offers convenience, value for money and efficacy. The clorsulon component has been shown to be over 99% effective against adult fluke, making Bimectin Plus a popular choice for the UK’s cattle farmers.

Bimectin Plus is licensed for wide range of internal and external parasites including:

Liver fluke (adult) Fasciola hepatica
Ostertagia ostertagi (including inhibited larval stages)
Haemonchus placei
Trichostrongylus axei
Cooperia oncophora
Bunostomum phlebotomum
Oesophagostamum radiatum
Lungworms (adult and fourth-stage larvae)
Warbles (parasitic stages)
Mange mites (Psoroptes bovis, Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis)
Sucking lice (Linognathus vituli, Haematopinus eurystemus, Solenopotes capillatus)
The product may also be used as an aid in the control of biting lice (Damalinia bovis) and the mange mite Chorioptes bovis, but complete elimination may not occur.

Common Parasites and Their Economic Impact

Lungworms, stomach worms and liver fluke can all have a devastating economic effect on the cattle herd. Bimectin Plus can help you to control all three parasites. Bimectin Plus contains Ivermectin and Clorsulon, two potent anthelmintics. Clorsulon is a potent flukicide, causing adult liver fluke to become unable to metabolise sugar and to die of starvation. This powerful combination allows you to control adult liver fluke, stomach worms and lungworm in one injection.

The importance of worming your horse

The British Horse Society recommend that you have a worming programme in place for your horse[s] – They say:

Parasitic worms can adversely affect the health and well-being of horses and ponies of all ages. These internal parasites can do irreversible damage to the gut and other organs and be responsible for poor body condition, colic and, in serious cases, fatalities

see more info here.

The importance of working your horse cannot be understated and here at Killyless Stores we can provide you with the solution you need.

Car Batteries cause lead poisoning to calves

Farming Independent recently reported about a farm who unfortunately lost calves because of lead poisoning. The O’Hanlon family lost calves because of lead which had leaked out of broken car batteries. The batteries are believed to have been dumped there. Dumping on farmland is a massive problem as it causes problems for farmers but in this case 20 calves sadly died before the batteries were found and removed.

NI Direct gives the following advice for the disposal of car batteries:

Batteries

All shops that sell large amounts of household batteries must provide a collection bin for used batteries. You may also be able to put old batteries in your regular household recycling bins or take them to a waste and recycling centre.

Car batteries should also be taken to a waste and recycling centre. Some shops that sell car batteries also accept old batteries for recycling. Check when you buy a new car battery to see if the shop will recycle your old battery for you. (Source)

The O’Hanlon family thanked neighbours and farmers for helping them search the fields. Click here to read the full story from the Farming Independent.
