Drummonds manufacture a comprehensive range of high performance Coarse Rations and our Dairy Nuts are contract manufactured to our own specifications. We should have a feed within our range to meet your cow's requirements. In addition we manufacture a specialist ('Parlour Supreme') range of coarse rations for 'in parlour' feeding, as well as balancers for dairy farmers who may be feeding alternative forages to grass silage such as forage maize and/or fodder/sugar beet. We provide a full diet formulation service.
Our technical team of nutritionists are abreast of key scientific principals, working with the customer
on a 'one to one' basis where farm profitability is the primary focus.
Dairy Nutrition for a Healthier World.

Drummonds rations are SIMPLE and HIGHLY NUTRITIOUS. Our technical sales team aim to work closely with our customers and as a result we are continually ‘tweaking’ and improving our feeds. We keep close to the research findings coming out of Irish and international research organisations including Teagasc Moorepark and Ballyhaise, as well as from UCD and Lyons Estate’s high yielding dairy herd. We are in regular discussion with leading nutritionists and aim to be to the fore in providing nutritional solutions to the problems which arise over time on farms.

DRY COW FEEDS
This is possibly the most critical period of a cow’s milk production cycle. Achieving optimum body condition is all important. There are 2 major factors influencing the cow’s body condition at this time: 1. The length of the dry period. 2. A cow’s energy intake.

Nut / Cubed Feeds
Our Dairy Nut Range provides a choice of cubed feeds,
made purely and exclusively from the top end of ruminant feed ingredients.
DAIRY PURE 16
A uniquely formulated nut designed to boost milk output without displacing grass from the diet.
Protein content is matched towards a grass and/or silage based diet.
DAIRY PURE 18
An extremely high energy nut for cows consuming predominately grass silage.
Often fed to freshly calved cows in spring before grazing becomes possible.
DAIRY PURE 21
Most commonly requested by our specialist winter milk customers.
This nut complements situations where grass silage quality is poor or to balance low levels of forage maize in the diet.
A combination of high energy and protein equips high genetic merit cows to reach peak yield under a housed feeding regime.
