With the harvest underway, IFA is reminding farmers that sourcing local Irish grain for feed can be excellent value for money – make the most of it to boost performance and profits!
Irish produced cereal and protein crops are excellent value for money and you can source high energy concentrate feed and quality proteins for your winter feed programme from local grain farmers.
Whole-crop cereals, grain and protein crops are available off the combine from local growers or through co-ops & merchants.
If purchasing a concentrate ration, insist on the maximum inclusion level of quality Irish cereals and proteins. Many imported feed ingredients are bi-products and are of inferior quality.
