Southern Milling Ltd are brand leaders for high quality dairy feeds. Our broad range of consistently, top performing diets have gained an unchallenged reputation for success among generations of Irish dairy farmers.
Milk yield and composition, along with the cow’s health and fertility status are the key areas that need to be considered when formulating a dairy ration. Improved herd fertility plays an important role in overall profitability. Correct inclusion of minerals and vitamins is essential to achieve good conception rates.
Southern Milling’s High Fertility Dairy Range is heavily fortified with all the minerals which are so essential for the health and fertility of the dairy herd. These minerals are available to the cow in a protected form, which allow for efficient absorption into blood stream. Protected trace minerals are four or five times more available to the animal than conventional minerals.
