Feed Manufacturing & Purchasing
Liffey Mills has always had the manufacture of quality coarse feeds at the bedrock of our business activity. We pride ourselves in the high inclusion rates of native grains (barley, wheat, oats) and locally grown protein sources (peas, beans). We buy our grains locally from the farmer and we dry, clean, process them and use them at high inclusion rates to produce superior feeds for you the farmer. Our main mill is in Roscrea with plants also in Nenagh and Banagher.
Liffey Mills are a major player in the production of nutritionally enhanced toasted flaked feed ingredients. We not only supply our needs in our own mills, but also wholesale our products to most of the major feed manufacturers in the country.
Liffey Mills operates five grain intakes at harvest time and buys up to 60,000 tonnes of grain from local growers for use in our feed mills. Our aim is to add value to every tonne of grain brought and it will add value to our customers operations due to the extra performance that tonne of feed will allow your stock to give you.
Our feed specialists will devise feed programmes to maximise output, minimise nutritional problems, deal with any animal health and forage quality issues to work to produce the maximum bottom line for the customer.
Good products are only as good as the advice and guidance users receive. We at Liffey Mills have a team of agronomists and feed specialists with years of both academic and practical experience who work closely with their farmer clients in such areas as crop production, dealing with crop choice, rotation, planning input use, timings, forward selling of grain, all which maximises the return to the farmer and ensures he will return to us next year.
