Available volumes of SelcoPlus, SedaGold and wheatfeed are set to increase significantly as we head into the autumn.
This is a result of ForFarmers’ long-standing partnership with Sedamyl, which has recently doubled production capacity at its Yorkshire-based plant. This means a greater and more secure supply of ForFarmers’ moist-feed products.
Sedamyl, is a leading manufacturer of starches, sweeteners, protein and alcohol, supplying ingredients to all major food, feed and industrial applications. It uses Yorkshire-grown wheat in its production processes at Selby, sourced from a network of more than 1,000 local farms.
This development aligns with ForFarmers ‘Going Circular’ strategy – a commitment to sustainability - which includes a commitment to responsible resourcing by maximising the use of non-food materials.
“SelcoPlus, SedaGold and wheatfeed are all by-products – they are a secondary product made in the manufacture of something else,” explains Neil McInnes, ForFarmers’ procurement manager for dry, moist and liquid feeds. “And these feeds may have gone to waste if not used here. Finding a use for them minimises the creation of pollution and carbon emissions,” he adds.
“The new contract with Sedamyl also increases the quantity of soya and palm-oil-free products ForFarmers provides.”
The high-energy-and-protein liquid co-product, SedaGold, mixes easily with other feeds and provides consistent nutritional specification, which improves rations and dry matter intakes. Total and partial mixed diets are enhanced because it holds the meal and fibre, ensuring the ration stays thoroughly mixed. Produced by Sedamyl from starches and alcohol in Yorkshire, the syrup has high sugar and good salt levels, helping to drive intakes.
SelcoPlus, a performance moist blend, is rich in energy and protein and is an ideal addition to help balance a variety of forage mixes. Its enhanced keeping quality, as well as its fresh aroma and sugar level, ensure its palatability. This helps to drive intakes, and milk production.

Supplying the correct amount of vitamins, minerals and trace elements is important for optimum production, health and fertility. Deficiency or excess of minerals can reduce performance and seriously affect animal health.
