Planet Range

Planet Dairy represents a major development to help dairy farmers move towards lower carbon milk production

Planet Dairy is the first range of dairy compounds and blends 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 – 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 oil products or derivatives

    We have replaced them with high quality, domestically produced ingredients wherever possible, ingredients that all dairy farmers will be familiar with

                                Rapeseed                Sugar beet              Field beans               Wheat feed

    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

    Yeasts rumen enhancers                                            Biotin Vitamin                                                                  Rumen inert fats                                                          Magnesium Mineral                                                            Pathogen Binders                                                        pH Neutralizer/ Rumen Buffer                                          Mycotoxin Binders                                                      Selenium Mineral                                                             Iodine Mineral
