Butterfat boosted by improving rumen function

Swapping to NIS brings lower costs, more consistency and healthier cows

The fall in milk prices last year prompted Richard and Ruth Pilkington and their family, who run a 250-pedigree Holstein herd at the 800-acre Shordley Hall near Wrexham, to take a closer look at how they could provide good quality feed and have healthier cows but at a lower price tag. Read more

Trial results on 275 Holsteins housed year-round

The trial took place on a single 275 cow herd in Herefordshire. The herd is predominantly Holstein or Holstein-Friesian with a 305 day production average of 9,200 litres. The study took place with the high yielding group. Read more

Grazed Dairy Cows

Grass, especially spring grass, presents several big problems to the modern dairy herd, that NIS can help overcome.


NIS can be described as pre-digested straw, hence youngstock find it easier to eat than long straw.

Housed Dairy Cows

NIS can support healthy rumen function to give better health and improved feed conversion efficiency.
