Comprehensive new forage and livestock directory

G&M site 7 March

The first-ever guide to the full range of supply and support services available to livestock farmers across the country from leading agronomy, technology and advice provider, Agrii has been published this spring.

Extending to 80 large format pages, the 2016-17 Agrii Forage & Livestock Products Directory is divided into colour-coded sections on livestock health and nutrition, crop nutrition, forage selection and establishment, environment and compliance, crop protection and supplementary services.

As well as setting out the full range of products the business supplies to grazing livestock producers in each area, the Directory contains a wealth of valuable intelligence and advice on diverse range of subjects. These include vitamin and mineral nutrition, internal and external parasite control, forage crop mixtures, varieties and nutrition, soil management, cross-compliance and NVZ nutrient planning, grassland weed pest and disease control, game cover and environmental crop mixtures, and input finance.

“In publishing this all-new Directory, we want to highlight the contribution our truly integrated approach to grazing livestock management can make to improving business profitability and sustainability,” pointed out co-ordinator, Tricia Roffe.

“It brings together the expertise of our team of animal health and nutrition, grassland and forage seed, agronomy and business support specialists and up-to-date intelligence from R&D work at our regional Technology Centres and iFarms.

“Alongside an overview of the many supply and support services we provide, the Directory signposts readers towards the range of product catalogues, service guides, bulletins and newsletters our business produces to help farmers make the most of their most important opportunities for improvement.”

Copies of the 2016-17 Agrii Forage and Livestock Products Directory are available free of charge to grazing livestock producers and their advisers by e-mailing [email protected] or telephoning the Agrii customer service team on 0845 6073322.
