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.
