Farewell to Pat

Farewell and hello!Friday 15th December saw us mark Pat’s final day with B & W Feeds.

Though Pat started with us in 2002 his connections with the mobile feed industry go right back to the very first days. In 1968 he started working out as an apprentice with the original company of Blandford & Webb, working on the first Farmhand Feed mobiles imported into the UK. Pat has seen many changes and developments in the mobile feed industry and has been a real asset to the B&W team.

To commemorate this, one of the items he was presented with was a picture collage featuring the earliest to the latest mobile plants.

We wish Pat a long and happy retirement.

Welcome to Nigel

Farewell and hello!We are delighted to welcome Nigel Brown to the team as our new Service Mechanic. Nigel has an extensive background in truck and plant servicing and has been working alongside Pat over the past few months to gain knowledge on the servicing of the mobile plants, as well as working with our operators to understand the day to day operation of them.

Nigel’s contact details:-

Workshop:- 01258 830620
Mobile:- 07879 557049

We are currently updating our parts store, as ever when calling for parts it is very helpful if you can let Nigel have the Model, Machine No and year, this will help identify the correct item required.

We wish you all a happy & prosperous 2018!

Cheap Imported Milk Replacers May Be An Expensive Option

Cheap Imported Milk Replacers May be an Expensive Option

It is very difficult to distinguish a quality milk powder from a budget product.  Whilst most calf milk powders look the same, the quality of ingredients can vary enormously. Cheap milk replacers seldom meet the expectations of British customers who expect milk replacers to be dust-free and mix easily in both warm and cool water. Cheap milk replacers are typically imported are often reported as being dusty, not mixing well and tending to separate rapidly after mixing.   Most importantly though is that calf growth rate targets may be  compromised and can only be achieved by feeding much more of the imported  powder and thereby eroding any cost savings made.

At B&W, we are not interested in selling cheap products that simply do not do the job.  We aim to  provide quality service and products.  That is why we have chosen to promote Milkivit calf milk replacers.  We have a really special deal coming up in the first two weeks of October for customers wishing to purchase our best seller “Premium XL”.  Call now for details.

They are supplied in 20kg buckets as well as 100kg and 500kg blocks.  They are ideal for cattle or sheep on summer grazing where irritating flies are likely to be a nuisance.  A natural way to control flies!

The buckets also contain:

– Phosphorus and calcium for bone growth
– Zinc for hoof and hide condition
– Selenium for improved immunity
– Yea-Sacc for improved feed conversion and growth rates

Conventional and organic options are available.
