Why feed a blend?

Blends have seen a surge in popularity in recent years as farmers look to improve their time efficiency and cash flow.

Blends are a mix of straight feeds which can be fed as is through trough feeding systems or as part of a mixer wagon diet. The only downside to a blend is that if you are using a component based feeding system, meaning the blend would need to be made up of pelletised raw materials in order to go through the parlour feeders.

The main benefit of feeding a blend is of course cash flow and storage. A blend only needs one bin or bay to be stored in, whereas taking straights onto farm would require multiple storage options as well as additional labour for on farm mixing. Blends are also a useful tool in terms of cash flow as it allows you to have multiple raw materials delivered as part of one invoice.
