Research and Development
We’re continuously investing in research and development - We work with leading global researchers to ensure we’re providing farmers with the latest thinking in ruminant nutrition. We also run our own research programme, including heifer protein feeding trials and beef innovation.
Some of our trials and institute partnerships
Some key research findings
- Feeding a 60:30 blend of palmitic and oleic acid resulted in a 4.5 kg per cow per day increase in energy corrected milk (ECM) over the fresh period (Michigan State University)
- Very early lactation cows fed protected methionine, lysine and histidine produced 1.8kg more milk per cow. There was also a 0.16 unit increase in milk protein and a 0.42 unit increase in milk fat. (Mole Valley Farmers and Reading University)
- Holstein Friesian bull calves fed a 24% protein pellet from 12 days until three months old averaged 1.3kg/day in daily live weight gain between weaning and three months, versus 0.97kg/day for calves fed a conventional 17% protein pellet (Farm trial).
