Livestock feeds:
compounds, blend and straights.
The focus is on the quality of service and the quality of raw materials. I can provide set bespoke formulations in 6mm nuts, 3mm nuts, coarse blends and fine meals. I am more than happy to go through the full formulation and be transparent about the ingredients included.

Supplements: minerals, buckets, yeasts, de-activators and fats.
A range of products for very precise jobs, formulated into rations to overcome issues and increase production.
I have two bucket ranges; one including live yeast and the other based on Seaquim.
A supplement bucket to compliment all scenarios and problems.

Forages: soil sampling, all seeds, fertilisers, soil conditioners and silage additive.
Soil samples are either sent to Lancrop (standard test) or Glenside (Albrecht soil survey).
Fertilisers come from Glasson.
Soil conditioners are supplied by Glenside.
Silage additives - the choice of additive should be very simple as the biology behind silage production is straight forward. As with anything in nature, it doesn’t happen in the exact same way each time, but it should be as close as possible. Nature is never a straight line and is never 100% repeatable, therefore, doing research into what active ingredients are proven to do the job is always a good idea.
There are many companies and additives on the market, the best results come from making an educated choice using the science and results available.
Forage Seeds from DLF, who are the biggest seed house in Europe.
This provides the broadest range of varieties available with in the UK market, however, this is not the whole story. In order to produce what the animals need in their rations, the correct selections must be made when creating a forage mixture.
It is not enough to have a very good in the field crop, the resulting forage/feed must be fit for purpose and actually add value to the diet. Using the experience of Grass Science, I have a simple range of forage seeds which will provide structure to any livestock production system.

Specialist products: heifer rearing system, transition cow system.
Calf Vantage, Vantage and Bio-Chlor Down Calver Pellets.
We supply two very strong products with 15 years of proven farm results.
Calf Vantage with Fermenten - grows replacements to meet with the genetic potential of the breed, whilst generating maximum efficiency and profitability from each replacement heifer born.
Bio Chlor Down Calver Pellets is very much a leading transition cow system for all dairy cows. It promotes an increase in dry matter intake both pre and post calving. This in turn means that the newly calved cow or heifer can deal with most of the issues that are commonly found around the six weeks either side of parturition. As a bonus the chloride attachment is very available and will, if the rest of the diet is managed correctly, prevent milk fevers.
To summarise,
1. The newly calved female eats more, helping to stop displacements
2. Less metabolic stress means fewer days until the next oestrus cycle.
3. As an added bonus, milk yield will peak faster without any body condition loss.
