Straights and Moist Feeds
Larger herd sizes and widespread use of diet feeders to feed dairy cows has resulted in greater opportunity to utilise full artic tipped loads of straight or moist feeds. These products can offer considerable cost savings in the right situation and as part of a well balanced diet.
Feeding cows using a full or partial Total Mixed Ration (TMR) offers much greater flexibility in the use of a wide range of bulk feeds and specialist supplements. This can result in opportunities for dairy farmers both to reduce costs and to improve performance and profitability.
Dairy farmers are placing much greater emphasis on producing high annual milk yields. There has also been a recognition of the need to reduce cull rates and to improve herd health and fertility through improved nutrition. With the wide range of feed options available, there are considerable benefits to seeking independent advice when formulating diets.
Making best use of the wide range of feeds available is an area where our nutritional expertise is of particular benefit to our customers
Bulk Straights - Along with pelleted compound feeds and coarse blends we supply bulk straight feeds, rolled cereals, whole oat husks, NIS pellets and other bulk feeds in some areas of the UK.
We are able to offer nutritional advice to customers on diets and feeding straights, biproducts, alternative feeds and supplements. Many of which can offer cost savings and nutritional benefits.
Bulk Moist Feeds - Moist feeds such as Wet Brewers Grains, Trafford Gold, Stock Feed Potatoes, Fodder Beet and Carrots can often provide a cheaper source of energy than home grown forage.
Moist feeds can also provide a useful source of bulk feed to supplement home grown forages, when forages are in short supply. Moist feeds are especially useful on farms where indoor storage for dry straights is limited, since they can be tipped and clamped in an outdoor silage clamp or on a concrete pad.
