This is achieved from consistently using top quality ingredients, rigorous quality control and applying the knowledge and expertise from experienced nutritionists.
Southern Milling offers the complete range of pig feeds from Starter diets to Weaner to Finisher, along with Gilt, and Sow Feeds. Manufacturing the entire range on site is a unique feature of pig feed Compounders today.
As pigs are monagastric, the highest quality wheat is always sourced and is the cornerstone in all high performance pig diets. Meal and pellet options of feed are available to meet the production systems in the modern piggeries.

Autumn grass has a lower energy value (lower sugar content) compared to spring/summer grass even through it can look very leafy and green. The response to ration in terms of milk yield is better in the autumn than at any other time of the year.
