What is Selenicut?
Selenicut is a special formulation providing an option for farmers to apply NPKS and selenium to grazing and silage swards.
Why use Selenicut?
Selenium is a vital trace element and is required by all animals. The natural route for selenium intake by ruminant animals is from their green feed diet. The selenium in Selenicut is a slow release granular form of selenium, which is the natural solution to boost low plant selenium levels. Selenium is released throughout the plant growing cycle boosting the selenium content at harvest or during grazing.
Selenium is essential for animal health
Selenium deficiency is linked to infertility, retained placentas, ill thrift and a wide range of sub-clinical symptoms
Ireland is one of the most selenium deficient countries in the world
Irish pastures supply only 38% of the selenium requirements of an average lactating cow (TEAGASC 2013)
On average, the cow's complete diet provided only 58% of her requirement for selenium (TEAGASC 2013)
Trials in Ireland and the UK have proved that the Seleni range can elevate and sustain Selenium levels in pasture, forage and animal bloods for optimal health and performance
Why treat the soil with Selenicut instead of treating the animal?

Assessing the effect of selenium fertiliser on herbage Se levels in grass
Applying a minimum of 4 bags/acre/yr of Selenicut over the grazing season will help to correct your selenium deficiency.
Selenicut is suitable for both first and second cut silage. Selenicut helps to raise the selenium content of silage. Apply 3-4 bags/acre as required.
