Designed and manufactured to maximise the overall performance of your animals. It is critical that the highest quality inputs are correctly matched to your requirements. We pride ourselves on the comprehensive range we produce. We have a feed to match all systems and situations.

All our feeds come with the assurance that they are made under the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS).
The amount of supplementary feeding needed in the run up to lambing depends on ewe requirements, base diet, forage quality and closeness to lambing. As unborn lambs grow faster at the end of pregnancy, the nutrient requirements of the ewe increase – at the same time her intake ability falls. Increasing the rate of concentrate feeding gradually through to lambing is the best way to insure against twin lamb disease and give lambs the best positive start.
The benefits of providing the correct nutrients during these key periods are well known and include, amongst others, improved fertility, increased prolificacy, reduced metabolic disorders, increased lamb vigor, increased milk production and lamb growth rates.
