Volac the maker of Ecosyl – a silage additive independently proven to increase milk yield from silage*.

As well as providing scientifically-researched additives for a range of silage crops, Volac conducts research into other aspects of silage-making – such as wilting, and the benefits of multi-cut grass.

Volac’s UK team of silage experts is well-placed to offer guidance on enhanced silage techniques – whether cutting, wilting, treating, harvesting, clamping or feeding.

* Based on independent dairy cow trials which have shown that feeding a range of silage crops preserved with Ecosyl boosted milk yield by an average of 1.2 litres/cow/day.

Up until the end of July, farmers in Great Britain can still claim two free bags of Volac-manufactured calf milk replacer with every pallet they purchase.

As a British family-owned company, we wanted to support British calf rearers to try and help relieve some of the financial pressure brought about by the national coronavirus crisis.

We are proud to be an integral part of the British dairy farming industry. British farmers have responded magnificently to an unprecedented challenge to keep the nation fed. And as a British company making calf milk formulas from British milk, we wanted to do our bit too, and extend our thanks to our farmers for supporting British manufacturing.

That’s why we were also keen to support the Farmers Weekly #FeedTheNation campaign.This has showcased the very best of British farming and highlighted how so many in the rural community have gone the extra mile to help us all during the coronavirus lockdown.

We’re proud of your efforts. That’s why we will continue to help you do the best by your calves during this difficult time. And whilst we may be closing our free product offer at the end of July, we’ll still be here to support you when you need us.

The Volac Customer Care Team and our experienced local Business Managers are always on hand to help you rear your calves efficiently – whatever your feeding system.
