GP Feeds Ltd - Quality Products for Quality Production...



We would like to share a another success story with you all.

Following on from a farm visit by Gareth, a meeting was held with a Sandbach farmer, his vet and nutritionist. The results of this meeting concluded that the feed being purchased from one of our competitors was of a high moisture content and the starch and protein combination were not synchronised to meet the requirements of the dairy herd. Problems arose from acidosis feet as well as a lack of bulling activity and disastrous PD sessions with the vet.

Gareth was asked to establish a feed programme recommendation. After taking forage samples and mineral analysis of all the silages, he went back for a further meeting with the vet and nutritionist with a recommendation for improving the dairy herd health.

Today we are delighted to tell you that the customer, has seen an improvements in herd health, is now producing 2 litres per cow extra, has less feet problems, and bulling activity is the best it has ever been on this farm. The farmer now says, he looks forward to the PD sessions, as the results are very positive and in line with that, that GP Feeds predicted would happen.

Within our feed plan, we have eliminated the competitors diet recommendation of using a 'bolt on' additive pack as it had little benefit and was costing the customer a fortune. With a balanced diet supplied by GP Feeds, the extras were just not needed and the saving to the customer was nearly £500 per month. GP Feeds have targeted the right raw materials and have improved the profitability of the herd, for this customer. It has worked for our Sandbach farmer, so why not let us do the same for you.

If you are having stock feeding issues on your farm, have a simple look at your delivery tickets and check the moisture content. For example, a lot of competitors have a moisture content of around 14% - 15% - this equates to 85% - 86% dry matter. Our compounds are between 10% - 11% making them 89% - 90% dry matter. This means that you are buying between 3% - 5% added water with some suppliers than you would with GP Feeds. On a product costing £200 per tonne this represents a large cost to your business and a shortfall in the value for your dairy cows.


A dairy farmer and customer of ours in the Cheshire area, managed by a husband and wife team, have also for a long time run alongside the dairy herd, an intensive beef system, using primarily cross bred continental cattle, with some Friesian / Holstein stock. In the past they purchased beef feeds from a variety of suppliers, but fed the dairy herd on GP Feeds compounds and blends, relying upon nutritional advice from the company's representative Nick Sharp.

In the past 12 months a change was made to the feed being fed to the beef herd. Switching from a beef blend supplied by one of our competitors, to a customised GP Feeds beef blend. The consistency of our products is the key and has proved their worth in the terms of growth rate, quality of finished cattle, and the achievement of top prices at Market Drayton market on a regular basis.

Two products are used, a specific customised 14% rearer / finisher and an 18% blend designed to be fed 50/50 with barley. Such has been the success on this unit, the word has spread rapidly amongst the local beef farmers, and as a result of this we are now supplying several beef units in the area with the cereal balancer beef blend. All these new customers are reporting back to us that cattle settle well, readily eat the blend and perform better than previously.

We can supply these beef blends in bulk, 1t totes or ½t totes.

If you have a beef enterprise, or wish to start one up, ring us for a down to earth practical solution to take your business forward, in the most profitable way.


Blowing our own trumpet is something that we do only on rare occasions but when we do blow it, we feel that everyone should know about it.

"I don't know how you get such a low cost price for such a quality ration - your opposition can't touch it" (Cheshire farmer)

"Not only are they reasonably priced but they are also very palatable" (North Wales farmer)

"I am using them for all my dairy cows, my youngstock and beef. They have never looked better" (Shropshire Farmer)

"They can't be any good at that price" (Another compounder in our trading area) Currently 5 new clients have swapped to our products from this compounder and all are pleased with the outcome.

Why not follow our new customers' example and give the office or your agent a ring for more details


Other testimonials from just a selection of our satisfied customers

"I was using calf and youngstock products from another major supplier in Cheshire but was unhappy with performance. I changed to your Coarse Calf 16 and within one month saw a fantastic difference and growth. I will never feed a cheaper diet again - quality counts!"

"The consistency in both appearance and quality of your products puts you in a different league to your competitors. When it comes to quality products and quality advice GP Feeds in my opinion offer the best."

"I changed to a cheaper blend and left GP Feeds but within 2 weeks milk production had dropped over 5 litres per cow. I changed back to my original blend from GP Feeds and production returned within 10 days. What more proof do I need that quality will always win?"

"I was annoyed how much cheaper your minerals were compared to the one I was using. For exactly the same specification I was saving over 50 per tonne."

"How refreshing, in these days of doom and gloom, to have a company who seems to know exactly what we want and to supply it with the minimum of fuss in a pleasant and open manner."

Of course it goes without saying you are guaranteed a fixed formulation with us - as the company motto goes:


Please give us a call to establish the potential for your dairy herd and the financial benefit to your business.
