We produce c.250,000 tonnes of animal feed annually from our Blackdale Mill near York. We sell animal feed to our own livestock enterprises as well as to a large number of independent farmers. Our “real-world” farming knowledge and experience ensures we continuously improve the quality of our feed compounds, in partnership with the best nutritionists and technology experts in the industry. We also grow our own crops which mean we understand our raw materials better than any other feed business. Running our own livestock business means we know the importance of finding the optimum diet, with the knowledge that each farm and locality has bespoke requirements to achieve the best possible performance. Our strategy of investing profits back into the business for continuous improvement and long term success have underpinned our performance for decades.
