Feed collections update – 25th March 2020

We would like to thank the vast majority of customers for their cooperation with the increased biosecurity measures we put in place last week. Operations have been busy but smooth over the last seven days. In order to provide even more peace of mind to customers visiting our site for collections we have added some additional measures to enable total isolation within your vehicle.

The new protocol is as follows.
• Ideally to order in advance on 01288 341111
• Upon arrival park in one of the collection bays
• Remain in your vehicle at all times, someone will assist you from a safe distance
• Once loaded there will be no paperwork to exchange
• No payments are being accepted on site. BACS details are on all our invoices or you can use telephone card payments.

We have operated this system since Boris’s statement on Monday evening and it has worked well. Again, thank you for your cooperation in these difficult circumstances.

Stay safe

Nick and Wendy

NEWS –  18th MARCH 2020

Covid-19 is set to dominate all our lives for the next few months. We want to make everyone aware of procedures we have implemented to safeguard our staff, our customers, their families and the continued efficient operation of our business and yours over this difficult period.

Farm visits – we will only visit farms at the customer’s request and after making an appointment. We will be happy to come for outdoor meetings with good separation, don’t be afraid to ask if you need advice or help with anything feed or nutrition related.

Visitors to the mill & office –It is still very much business as usual, but we do ask those collecting feed to remain outside the buildings and respect the advised safe 2 metre distance between people. We also remind customers at this time that we have an economic delivery service for bulk and bagged feed which would reduce the risk of exposure for vulnerable groups or those in regular contact with vulnerable family members.

Deliveries – We are advising customers to look at their order volume, and if possible, increase the tonnage to decrease the frequency of visits to farm. Bulk deliveries can be undertaken unassisted. Bag deliveries will need someone present to drive the unloading machinery, but we ask that a safe distance is maintained from the driver. Small volume bag drops with the van at markets etc. have ceased whilst attendance at markets is restricted.

Mill operation – At this time we have no indication of any supply chain problems. There are adequate stocks of our major raw materials in store or at the docks, soya and soya hulls stocks are low in the docks, and awaiting a ship currently making its way across the Atlantic but no issues are expected to hinder safe arrival. We have a few contingency plans in place should we suffer from severe staff shortages. It is our firm intention that operations and feed availability will remain largely unaffected there is no need to panic buy. Any change to the current status will be announced here.

May we wish you a safe few weeks and no sorry we don’t have any toilet roll.
