Northern Ireland animal feed companies to talk high performance standards at show
By Eleanor McGillie
ANIMAL feed companies, Hyde Farm Feeds and Stonebridge, are inviting customers to discuss their feed requirements for the autumn/ winter seasons at this year’s Antrim Show.
The show, which takes place on July 27 and is now in its 107th year, continues to grow in popularity every year with trade stands up this year by 20 per cent, cattle entries are up 10 per cent and sheep entries have remained high with horse entries being accepted on the day.
Members of the team from Hyde Farm Feeds and Stonebridge will be based in the marquee which they share with Crumlin NFU.
Andrew Hyde said the show is a perfect opportunity to meet with customers present and future.
He said: “The Antrim Show is a good show for us because we get the opportunity to talk directly with our customers who we greatly value so their feedback is vital.
“It’s an opportunity for our customers to sit down, have a cup of tea or coffee and tell us what they need from us so feeds meet the expected performance standards for their animals. We have had a great number of successes this year and we continue to encourage people to tell us about their success stories with their horse, cattle and sheep, which we share on our website and Facebook page.
“We would like to congratulate everyone with their successes.”
John Herron, show secretary, said there’s great excitement surrounding this year’s show.
He said: “We look forward to welcoming Hyde Farm Feeds and Stonebridge to Shane’s Castle Estate for our 107th show. The number of entries is continually increasing and we can still take horse entries on the day so people are very welcome just to show up and enter.”
People visiting the stand are invited to enter a free draw to win a delicious food hamper.
