The Baynesfield Estate Mill was erected in 2009 and is a state-of-the-art facility. The Mill is highly efficient in mixing and processing feed for the piggeries.
The feed is specifically formulated for the various age groups to ensure efficient feed conversion.
The Mill currently produces approximately 850 tons of feed and can process up to 70 tons of feed a day.
There are many advantages to having an inhouse Feedmill, namely the flexibility of changing formulation on demand, adding medication when needed and ensuring feed is fresh and palatable.
There are cost savings to the company because of the vertical integration between the maize produced, which makes up 62% of the ration, and the reduced overheads in the Feedmill.
