Feeds

游戏厅赌币机游戏下载 Agriculture has grown to be a leading national supplier of ruminant animal feed to 4,750 customers in the UK, feeding one in six dairy cows in Britain. It operates from sites in Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire and Devon.

游戏厅赌币机游戏下载 provides nutritional advice to farmers across the country with over 50 trained nutritional advisors analysing forage and farmers’ objectives to deliver feed to optimise performance. Feed is then produced from mills across the UK and delivered directly to farmers with the majority of the business being dairy, but also supporting beef and sheep farmers.

Our strategy

  • Consolidate the UK ruminant feed market (游戏厅赌币机游戏下载 no. 2, feeding one in six dairy cows)
  • Utilise national operational platform
  • Continue to develop feed volumes across the country
  • Expand nutritional range


In Feeds, a consistent result has been delivered despite variable market conditions.

There has been some volatility in the feeds market during the year with a significant increase in demand from farmers in the long dry summer period who increased feed rates to offset a lack of forage. In the winter this was reversed with good grazing conditions reducing ruminant feed demand, particularly for sheep feed, in comparison to the long cold winter in FY18. Commodity prices increased by over 10% to the end of August and then consistently fell to end the year 14% lower. Customers experienced higher summer prices but then gained relief in the autumn and winter periods.

Investment was made in operations and ensured high service levels were maintained across the country throughout the year.

Revenue increased by 6.2% to £180.4 million (2018: £169.9 million) broadly as a result of increased feed prices. Headline operating profit was £2.8 million (2018: £3.0 million). Total feed volume was stable at 591,000 tonnes (2018: 589,000 tonnes).

A key strategic priority for the business remains to increase the nutritional focus in Feeds by providing high quality advice and value-added products to our farming customers. New products have been successfully launched in the year, backed by training and multi-channel communications with farming customers.

Average milk prices in Great Britain were stable, increasing from 27.1p to 27.9p per litre over the period with a high of 31.6p per litre in November 2018. On the back of this more positive environment, milk production increased by 1.6% to 12.6 billion litres (2018: 12.4 billion litres).

Feeds has a very broad customer base, working with over 4,750 farmers across the country. This base, and the underlying robust demand for milk and dairy products, results in a reasonably stable overall demand for our feed in most market conditions.
