RWN Compound Feeds and Coarse Blends
RWN Compound Feeds and Coarse Blends are supplied by independent, UFAS approved, local animal feed mills renowned for service, quality and value for money. We offer fixed formulations on standard products together with bespoke diets, specially formulated to meet individual farm needs.
We work closely with the local independent feed manufacturers to combine all the benefits of top quality feed ingredients, with low overhead costs, superior service and greatly reduced local delivery costs.
Whilst pelleted compound feeds are most suited to parlour feeding, out-of-parlour feeders and robots, coarse blends offer a number of advantages over pelleted compound feeds for use in Total Mixed Rations (TMR), or for dairy heifers, beef and rearing stock.
Blends are much more flexible than straight feeds which are generally purchased in 29 tonne tipped loads, but cheaper to produce than compound feeds.
In complete diets, cows are less able to sort mealy blends than the are with compound nuts and pellets. Blends based on rolled cereals and straights are also easier for young cattle to digest with fewer digestive upsets and better feed efficiency than with more processed, fine ground and pelleted compounds.
We formulate blends using a wide range of raw materials including rolled wheat and barley, rolled maize and field beans, maize meal, hipro soya, soypass, distillers, maize gluten, rapeseed extract, sugar beet pulp, soya hulls, wheatfeed pellets, amino-pro, prairie meal, malt residuals, molasses, protected fat and minerals.
Blends are cheaper to produce than pelleted feeds. Equally they offer many advantages over 29 tonne tipped loads of straight feeds. Blends can be reformulated as required and delivered freshly mixed at relatively short notice in loads as small as 5 tonnes tipped.
Blends do cost more than full load tipped straights but avoid the investment in storage and mixing facilities and large cash outlay required to tip and store several 29 tonnes loads of straights a definate plus for cash flow.
Blends offer a great deal of flexibility. Nutty heavy molassed blends to reduce dust will increase intakes. Un-milled, High Digestible Fibre (HDF) based blends or rolled cereal rather than ground cereals will be digested more slowly which can both reduce risk of acidosis and improve feed efficiency in dairy cows, beef cattle and youngstock. On the other hand in some dry TMR's a mealy blend may reduce sorting.
