Nutritious feeds – and traceable

COMPOUND livestock feeds manufactured from a consistent ingredient list will provide protein sources that are acceptable to producers and traceable, says animal feed company James and Son.

Its SuperPro dairy, beef and sheep mineralised compounds include feeds only from a set list, including products such as dried potato, brewers grains and dry malt, it says.

Changes to formulations between loads will not be dramatic, avoiding adverse effects on stock. Each load will have full ingredient declaration with percentages, adds James and Son.

Prices start from about £120/t for bulk blown deliveries depending on haulage distances (01604-762817, fax 01604-763170).
