Deciding on the best supplement to feed your dairy herd is one of the most important decisions a farmer will make. The correct ration can significantly improve productivity and improve the profitability of your dairy enterprise. Farmgate Stockfeeds provides specially selected high-grade specification cereal grains, lupins, canola and corn, all milled to produce superior palatable blends readily digested to maximise the nutritional requirements of your herd.
One of our specialties is the custom manufacture of premixes that can be blended with grain on farm. Our nutritional and technical team will produce your pre-mix to your exact specifications, working with nutritionists and veterinarians to ensure the product is exactly what you need. This ensures your stock are fed effectively and to your consultant’s specifications. We also design pre-mixes that can be used with any grain you may use.
Farmgate Stockfeeds stocks the complete range of vitamins, minerals, additives, rumen modifiers and probiotics to complement your feed ration. Our technical and nutritional team constantly review the additives available so as to offer you the best range. This guarantees your ration is supplemented perfectly, and ensures the optimum health of your herd. The right additives can complement the health and nutritional needs of your herd, and add much more return on your investment.
Calf Starter Meal
Our Calf Starter Meal is designed to supplement young calves’ milk with grain at an early age. Lucerne, sugars and stimulants are blended with our Calf Starter Meal to ensure your calves are weaned on to grain as soon as possible.
Calf Grower Meal
Farmgate Stockfeeds’ Calf Grower Meal benefits calves, especially those up to two months of age. A balanced blend of 16% protein and 12% MJ energy with vitamins and minerals ensures an optimal growth rate will be achieved at this crucial stage in the calf’s life.
Weaned calves on paddock feed can be a real challenge – there are stages when growing calves simply need to grow into their frames and fill out. Maximising growth rates and live-weight gains is essential to the efficiency and productivity of the cow, and Farmgate Stockfeeds’ Heifer Mix is designed especially to maintain optimum growth rates for weaned paddock heifers.
Lead Feeding is arguably the most important nutritional program that can be undertaken in a dairy management practice. Lead Feeding three weeks prior to calving minimises the risk of milk fever and other metabolic diseases, improves milk flow in the lactation, reduces displaced abomasum and retained foetal membranes, and reduces the risk of associated metabolic disease. Improved ovulation and conception rates are also an important feature of a correct Lead Feed program. Farmgate Stockfeeds is constantly researching transition diets and offer the very best technology to ensure our Lead Feed products are state of the art.
We also offer a competitively priced direct whole grains service, which still complies with our quality standards. Unloading can be done via bulk tip, blower pipe or auger (supplied by the customer). Special orders can also be sourced or freighted if possible.
