Winner of the Keenan mixer wagon and two years of support on rationing and improving forage efficiency in the recent farmers weekly competition, is Richard Mycock, Buxton, Derbys (left), pictured with FW livestock editor Jessica Buss and Michael French, Keenan. The prize will see Mr Mycock change from feeding silage through a forage box and a parlour blend mixed in a static mixer to a total mixed ration. Using the wagon shouldnt require any changes to buildings, but extra straights storage may be needed and he hopes for some increase in yield/cow and lower concentrate cost/t.
