At Drummonds our priority is to consistently formulate top quality animal feeds consisting of only the premier league of proven feed ingredients.
Quality – Assured coarse feeds are manufactured under licence from the Department of Agriculture and in addition our Navan Feed Mill is accredited by both UFAS and Bord Bia.
Our aim is to provide our customers with the best practical nutritional advice so that we can help you select the best ration for your animals, in order to maximise on-farm performance, increase yields and maximise profits. We can help you achieve this by working alongside our experienced and enthusiastic technical sales team which is supported by our ruminant nutritionists.
- We are proud to declare that we include ALL locally – grown cereals and pulses (Beans & Peas) in our feeds, in support of tillage farmers in the North East, and to ensure our livestock customers achieve maximum animal performance and thrive.
- Drummonds does NOT purchase imported barley or wheat for inclusion in our feeds. Our grain stores are filled with locally grown cereals which form the backbone of our coarse rations.
‘Best Cost’formulated feeds (as against the wider industry standard of manufacturing ‘Least Cost’ feeds), which are brimful of only wholesome, nutritious ingredients, judiciously formulated, using the most up to date nutrition research, to deliver TOP ANIMAL PERFORMANCE.
WE ONLY INCLUDE ‘THE PREMIER LEAGUE’ OF PROVEN FEED INGREDIENTS
|ROLLED BARLEY||ROLLED WHEAT||GROUND/FLAKE MAIZE|
|ROLLED BARLEY– one of the most common energy feeds offered to livestock. It is seen as an international standard in ruminant nutrition and forms the basis of the French feed evaluation system (UFL/UFV).
1 UFL/UFV is equivalent to 1Kg of standard air dried barley.
|ROLLED WHEAT – has a similar energy value to rolled barley and is also high in starch.||GROUND/FLAKE MAIZE - An energy rich, highly digestible and palatable feed providing an excellent source of 'slowly
Other energy feeds used include Megalac.
|HIPRO SOYA – vitally important source of protein for the world’s livestock. It the most protein - rich feed available (48% CP) for ruminants and acts as a standard against which other feeds are compared.||FIELD BEANS - are highly nutritious with an ME higher than that of Barley and a Crude Protein content varying from 24% to 28%. The starch content of beans breaks down slower in the rumen than that of cereals, thereby providing a gentler outflow of
nutrients in the animal’s digestive system. This is particularly important in high cereal diets.
Other protein feeds include: rapeseed meal pellets, wheat distiller pellets, wheat gluten, maize gluten and maize distillers.
HIGH DIGESTIBLE FIBRE FEEDS
|Dried Sugarbeet Pulp, Rolled Oats, Soya Hulls and Citrus Pulp.|
