Introducing Planet Range
Planet Dairy represents a major development to help dairy farmers move towards lower carbon sustainable milk production
Planet Dairy is the first range of dairy feeds formulated to specifically exclude any soya and palm products, the ingredients most closely linked to environmental concerns
Why have we developed the Planet Dairy range?
• As a feed manufacturer, we have always been focussed on reducing our own carbon footprint across all aspects of our business
• The farming industry has to move towards zero carbon by 2040 and we believe we must work to help our customers achieve this
• There is increased consumer pressure to reduce the use of specific ingredients
• Some processors are already requiring farmers to specifically remove soya and palm products from their systems and more will follow
• We developed the range so our customers are able to respond to the requirements of their customers and work towards net zero
What is Planet Dairy?
Planet dairy compounds and blends are a comprehensive range of dairy feeds created to help reduce the carbon cost of dairy farming, working at two levels.
Planet Dairy – environmentally friendly ingredients
We have removed the ingredients most closely associated with high carbon on dairy farms and with the highest environmental consequences
No soya products
No palm kernel
We have replaced them with high quality, domestically produced ingredients where ever possible, ingredients that all dairy farmers will be familiar with
We have not introduced any novel or ingredients
We have trialled the feeds and all formulations have been developed to deliver high quality feeds for high producing herds but with less environmental impact and lower food miles.
Planet Dairy – delivering feed efficiency
Its not just about changing ingredients, it’s about making sure cows are fed efficiently to help reduce the carbon cost per litre and feed waste
All Planet Dairy feeds contain Novatan a blend of essential oils to maximise protein utilisation and reduce waste
All Planet Dairy feeds contain our FiMLAC mineral premix to help keep cows healthy, fertile and efficient and with strong immune systems
But we know all herds are different with different performance objectives challenges. So we are able to add a range of additives and additional ingredients to help keep your herd on track, including
Rumen inert fats
Each business to develop own list but advise no brand names just in case you change supplier etc
