HOME N' DRY

WHY USE HOME N' DRY?

Home n’ Dry® pellets are the foundation of Alkasystems technology – developed after extensive research and trials over 30 years ago, they are a unique, cost effective, high protein feed ingredient that enable farmers, nutritionists and feed manufacturers to maximise the potential of their crops, feeds and diets. 

Home n' Dry is used to treat mature cereal grains and crops.

WHAT IS HOME N' DRY?

Home n’ Dry® pellets consist of approximately equal parts Technical Feed Grade Urea and Full Fat Soya Bean and a percentage of other feed ingredients to stabilise the pellet.

Urea is the key nitrogen source for ammonia release from Home n' Dry. The engineering in the process of creating the pellets means that the resultant feed material contains virtually no measurable residue of urea.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Easy to use in a one-step application; once in contact with moisture, Home n' Dry pellets release ammonia into the subject crop or feed, destroying microbes, moulds and mycotoxins - effectively sterilising the crop.

Once the ammonia has been released by enzyme action, a further reaction occurs leaving behind alkaline ammonium salts, mainly ammonium bicarbonate (which is also an excellent rumen buffer & nitrogen source) and full fat soya.

The resultant crops and feeds are alkaline, stable, increased in protein content and as the ammonia also reacts with lingin in plant cell walls, have enhanced digestibility.

The high pH in the treated materials helps buffer the rumen against excess acidity and allows a whole new approach to feedstuffs and feeding techniques.

Implementing Alkasystems through Home n' Dry can help address the challenges in modern farming, by maintaining better feed intakes and overall animal condition, while consistently delivering higher output and increasing the use of own grown or locally sourced feeds and forages.
