Using Epizym saves me money in more ways than one

What prompted you to use Epizym?

“Epizym contacted me to see if I’d be interested in trialling Epizym on my farm. As I had a crust on my slurry I thought I would try it and I’ve used it ever since. I produce milk for cheese and so I was also interested in anything that could improve the quality of the milk. I was interested in the promise that Epizym would reduce odour.”

What happened next?

"Epizym was applied in the right quantities. After about six weeks, the crust had reduced by at least 50%.

It has definitely saved me money. I saved 30 units of bagged fertiliser per acre on the first cut alone. I have saved on contractor costs but do much of the mixing myself and Epizym has drastically reduced the amount of time this takes me so I can do other things. The reduction in smell is another good benefit. I’ve moved to a more rural area now but I used to have a farm with neighbours. They were happy once I started to use the Epizym, as is my wife to this day."

What other benefits have you noticed?

“When my slurry isn’t treated with Epizym I can see that it’s inconsistent on the land - lumps and fibre being visible"

Would you recommend Epizym products to other farmers?

“Yes. I wouldn’t go back to not using it.”
