Animal feed company says choosing the right feed for herds boosts efficiency and profitability

By Eleanor McGillie

A LEADING animal feed company says having the right feed plan for herds during the coming months is vital in order for farmers to achieve efficiency and profitability from their cows.

Hyde Farm Feeds, based on Crookedstone  Road, Co Antrim, is currently working with farmers across the province providing them with tailor made feed plans to suit the needs of individual farmers which enables them to achieve maximum efficiency from their herds.

Andrew Hyde said Hyde Farm Feeds was one of the first animal feed company in Northern Ireland to put the Total Mix Ration (TMR) feeder wagon systems into place – a system which was tried and tested on the company’s own dairy and beef herd .

Mr Hyde said by doing so this gives Hyde Farm Feeds an advantage to control all aspects of performance from butter fat, protein, good fertility and ensuring lower cell count etc  in milk produced.

He said: “Hyde Farm Feeds is a Farm Quality Assured company. Over the years Hyde Farm Feeds has developed and done a lot of work in the ruminant function. We are able to get maximum performance from concentrates and forage. We are continuing to build on our reputation as one of Northern Ireland’s  feed companies which operates by our company motto that animal health comes first.

“All farmers want their herds to be efficient and profitable – be that beef or dairy herds. We find that our customers keep coming back because we are able to provide them with tailor made feed plans to suit the needs of their herds. This year we are in a very fortunate position because we have bought top quality raw material at very competitive prices  which will benefit all round.

“We are now giving  farmers the opportunity  to contact us, where we can give you a competitively priced winter feed while stocks last . Call us today and we will discuss what we can do for you.”
