Reducing environmental impact through phosphorus reduction

As a pioneer in our industry, ForFarmers takes its role in driving sustainability seriously. Reviewing phosphorus (often referred to as P) in diets is one recent example of this.

Recent research has consistently shown that typical UK dairy cow rations tend to oversupply P. As well as benefitting the planet, addressing phosphorus oversupply makes good financial sense, too.

A step in the right direction

Most UK diets containing grass silage, maize silage, compound and blend have been found to already contain the required P levels. As a result, ForFarmers have revised their core Minline Minerals Range to zero phosphorus as standard.

This will help mitigate our contribution to the harmful effects on the environment, and help you to reduce unnecessary costs.
