“We help you maximize your profits through quality nutrition”

Our philosophy in formulating and manufacturing dairy feeds for the last 30 years has been to provide the best quality product at the best value price to our customers. We believe in using high levels of high energy cereals in the form of Barley and Maize to fuel efficient milk production in the cow. Thankfully our customers appreciate our efforts to make the best value feed for them and our business has grown as a result.

Dairy Product Overview

All our products contain 40% high energy cereals in the form of Maize and Barley. These have proven over the years to be the most cost efficient way of feeding the high energy demand that a cow has to produce milk solids. To balance our feeds we use highly digestible fibre products such as Soya hulls and Beetpulp. These products provide the necessary high quality fibre to slow down the breakdown of feed in the rumen and allow for a slow release of energy.

We use high quality protein sources such as HiPro Soya meal, Distillers Dried Grains and Rapeseed extract to provide high levels of high energy protein to help fuel Milk Solid production.

We use high quality minerals formulated to meet the demands of the cow at different times of the year to ensure as balanced a mineral intake as possible. All our Dairy Feeds contain magnesium to power the millions of chemical reactions in the cow to breakdown fodder to microbial proteins that the cow needs for milk production and good health along with preventing grass tetany.

Delivery of our Dairy Products is achieved using our own fleet of Bulk delivery trucks. These trucks are maintained to the highest standard to ensure reliability of delivery to our customers. We ask for at least a working days notice for Bulk delivery.

Dairy MaxGrass (plus fertility)

This 16% protein product has been specially formulated using our experience from last years very successful Dairy Maize to Graze nut. And trials on some local farms.

The first five ingredients are 30% Maize, Beetpulp, Soya Hulls Barley and Distillers. It also contains a Rumen Buffer agent, Active yeast and our special and very successful fertility mineral pack.

This feed is specifically targeted for cows making the transition from silage to grass and into the grazing season. The Buffering agent and the yeast will help the cow’s rumen to stabilize during a very difficult time while she changes from 6 months silage, to grass. When we get into very leafy second rotation grass this feed will help to stabilize her rumen to help offset acidosis from this very leafy turbocharged grass.

We are also including a fertility mineral pack in this feed during the breeding season to help get the breeding process started. Our customers experience with this has been very positive from the last few years with more compact calving, higher conception rates and less empty cows. Please indicate if you wish the fertility pack when ordering and allow an extra day manufacture time.
