Dairy Feed

Harpers have the unique ability to produce coarse-grind compounds.

All cereals are rolled, giving a larger particle size which releases nutrients slowly in the rumen, enhancing performance and aiding in the reduction of health issues such as acidosis.

Our diets encourage high performance in terms of milk yield and quality, whilst helping to enhance health status.

With a range of energy, fibre and cereal-based diets, we have a ration to suit every need.  However, as each farm is individual we also have the on-farm expertise and mill capability to build you a bespoke diet specifically for your cows' requirements.

You can also rely on our diets to remain fixed formulation for contract periods, giving you confidence that our products will perform consistently throughout each season.
