At Kingshay…edf

The European Dairy Farmers club (EDF) are conducting a survey to understand what is being done on farm with regards to animal welfare across Europe and why.  At Kingshay, we are expanding this survey to our Members to get a more in-depth impression of UK farmers views and will report back the findings and compare these views to those of other EU farmers.

Please can you take a few minutes to complete the survey and return it in the enclosed freepost envelope. If you prefer to complete it electronically, please email for an Excel copy.

Flyers for Kingshay ServicesAnalysis-Promo-Flier-A4-Spring-18-v2-1

We offer a full range of analysis services and sampling tools – with discounted prices for Kingshay Members.

Matching your animal’s requirements with nutrient supply is key to maximising production. Analysing feed, forage & water is a crucial factor as quality can be extremely variable year on year as well as from farm to farm.

The results of the analysis can be used to inform your decisions, meeting the needs of your farm.

Don’t forget your soil analysis too – soil sampling at this time of year allows you to prepare your fertiliser reigime, increase plant growth and yields, as well as managing costs.
