CONGRATUALTIONS to Mr C Hanselman of Whitchurch, who won our prize draw at Nantwich Show of a weekend for two at Carden Park.

Forage Special

With the continuing drought, most farms will be short of forage stocks this autumn and winter, so we at GP Feeds have been working very hard to secure the procurement of 'moist feeds'. With the various options we now have available to you, we are sure we have something to suit everyone's needs. Please find overleaf the product details, typical analysis and feeding recommendations, of what we have to offer you. Please take a little time to peruse the following, as there is a lot of information for you to digest. Some of the products are short term (Double Pressed Apple Pulp available September to December 2006). For most of the others, we can offer a contract for feed loads right through from September to April 2007 (whilst stock last).

We have also included three liquid products, two that can be used with straw and maize, again to try and save some of the forages you have. Prices are subject to delivery areas and load sizes, so please after you have read this month's newsletter if you require any further information please give the office a ring on 01948 661602 and we will be happy to discuss your requirements and let us help you through this autumn / winter.

Straw can be used to help substitute when other forages and grass are in short supply. Since straw is of relatively low nutritive value it must be fed together with an appropriate liquid feed to balance it for energy and protein therefore, improving its feed value considerably. With this in mind we can offer the following products to help.

Remember if you need any further information on any of the products mentioned in this months newsletter please ring the office on 01948 661602


For the 4th Year running we have won 'Best Stand' in our category at Nantwich Show. When we asked the judges why us again? They replied that they like the professionalism and innovative approach we have to the dairy industry along with the friendly family atmosphere we were portraying and the comfortable ambience that was generated from our marquee. Once they had tasted our infamous beef bap - which was fed on our feeds from start to finish, they could really taste the difference - we felt we could win. Unlike some of the other exhibitors at the show, it was felt there was an unwelcoming and colditz like approach to farmers and prospects, it left the judges in no doubt who should win.

Thank you to all customers and prospects that visited us at the stand,
you made it a most enjoyable day for all.
