Analysis Services

Kingshay supply a wide range of analysis Services:

silage-analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Silage Analysis

Analyse your Silage to Maximise Production

Before planning winter rations analyse your silages as nutrient quality can be variable. 

Full feed into milk analysis for grass, maize and wholecrop.

Tests include;

  • DM%, DM solubility
  • Energy Content – D value, ME, NDF, Sugars
  • Energy Content – Crude protein, Crude protein degradability, ERDP, DUP
  • Intake Factor Index (cow)
  • Fermentation Quality – pH, Ash, Ammonia, N, Potential acid loading, Lactic acid, Acetic acid, Lactic : Acetic ratio, Ethanol, Butyric acid, Total fermentable acids
fresh-grass-analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Fresh Grass Analysis

Exploit your grass to its full potential

To make silage of the highest quality it needs to be cut at the right time and fermented well; undertaking pre-cut silage grass analysis can help to:

  • Optimise nutritional value and monitor how crops are maturing
  • Improve cutting and ensiling management taking into account:
    - Effects of fertiliser residues
    - Availability of sugar, for a good fermentation
    - Length of wilt needed
    - Benefit of using an additive
    - Guide the level of sulphur needed.

Fresh grass analysis reports DM, crude protein, D value, ME, NDF, ash, oil A, sugar (water soluble carbohydrate), nitrate N, buffering capacity.

Forage_Mineral_Analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Forage Mineral Analysis

Monitor the mineral status of your forage and fresh grass

Testing gives an indication of mineral levels in forages and highlights and gives an opportunity to correct deficiencies by supplementation.

The forage mineral analysis reports on calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium, chloride, cation anion balance, iron, aluminium, manganese, zinc, selenium, copper, molybdenum, sulphur, available copper and soil contamination index.

comprehensive-Soil_Analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Comprehensive Soil Analysis

Reap the potential of your soil

We offer a full range of soil analysis linked to expert independent advice from our specialist advisers to help you get your soils working at their optimum.

The first step towards Integrated Soil Management.  The report includes an interpretation of the results PLUS a discussion with our independent technical experts to help you develop a Soil Improvement Programme.

Skillful and progressive management of soils can improve not only the forages you grow, but also the health and productivity of your livestock

  • Maximise soil productivity
  • Improve forage production
  • Enhance feed conversion
  • Build disease resistance

Tests include;

  • Phosphate, potash, magnesium, pH
  • Physical soil structure – Sand:Silt:clay,
  • Organic matter, microbial activity
  • Macronutrients – Sulphate, total phosphorus, total potassium, calcium and magnesium
  • CEC capacity (Ca:Mg ratio) and % nutrient balance
  • Trace elements – iron, molybdenum, copper, selenium, zinc, manganese, cobalt and boron
  • Conductivity
Standard_Soil_Analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Standard Soil Analysis

  • Analyse your soils to optimise your forages
  • Make the most of your fertilisers and slurry

Tests include phosphate, potash, magnesium, pH and RB209 fertiliser recommendations

CarbonCheck_Plus_With_Textural_Class_Analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Carbon Check Plus With Textural Class Analysis

  • Measure the levels of carbon in your soils plus active carbon
  • With the NFU’s target of achieving net zero by 2040 it is important now more than ever that farmers are playing their part in climate change mitigation

Tests include Carbon (Organic, Inorganic and Total), Nitrogen (C:N ratio), % Sand, Silt & Clay, density to calculate the Carbon stock and Soil Organic Matter PLUS active Carbon to assess the portion of Organic Matter readily available to Soil Microbes.

CarbonCheck_With_Textural_Class_Analysis Analysis Services

Buy now Carbon Check With Textural Class Analysis

  • Soils are fundamental to agriculture, without healthy soils farming is neither profitable nor sustainable
  • Our CarbonCheck analysis means that you can now measure the levels of carbon in your soils

Tests include Carbon (Organic, Inorganic and Total), Nitrogen (C:N ratio), % Sand, Silt & Clay, density to calculate the Carbon stock and Soil Organic Matter.

Buy now Slurry / Manure Analysis

NVZ rules require that N applications are carefully planned. Before any nitrogen is applied, you must plan the spreading of nitrogen from organic manures and manufactured fertilisers to each crop in each field.  Assess the nutrient content of your FYM and slurry in order to fine tune fertiliser applications, save money and reduce nutrient losses.

Sample tests; pH, total solids, total nitrogen, ammonium N, total phosphorus, total potassium, total magnesium, total sulphur, total copper, total zinc, total sodium and total calcium.

Buy now Feed Stuffs Analysis

This analysis is performed by wet chemistry

The basic analysis includes - ME, Dry Matter, Crude Protein, Oil-B, NCGD, and Ash

Full analysis for concentrates and straights includes - ME, Moisture, Crude Protein, Ash, Oil-B, NCGD, NDF, Starch, and Sugar.

rumen acidosis Analysis Services

Buy now NIR Analysis of Ruminant Feed

This analysis is to test compound or straight ruminant feed by Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIR), which measures the absorbance of infra-red light, interpreted against a primary reference method of a wet chemistry laboratory assay.

The analysis includes Ruminant ME (derived from Ash, Moisture, NCGD and Oil A & B), Crude Fibre, Protein, Starch, Sugar NDF.

Buy now Livestock Drinking Water Analysis

It is important to test water quality for any high mineral or pathogen levels which may cause problems with your livestock.  High producing cows are particularly sensitive to poor water quality because of the amount of water they are required to consume daily. 

LDW analysis – minerals:

Testing minerals in livestock drinking water includes pH, conductivity, total dissolved solids, alkalinity, acidity, total hardness, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulphate-S, aluminium, copper, iron, lead, manganese, and zinc.

LDW analysis – microbiological: 

Reports on total coliforms, E.coli and Salmonella.
