Feeding and Advice

This Farmgate product range and advice guide is intended to be used to help Smallholders who are keeping small numbers of animals in non-intensive, humane conditions, providing a general introduction to the ownership and care of your Farmgate fed poultry and livestock.  You should always seek further advice before acquiring / developing commercial sized flocks / herds.

Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, you have a legal obligation as someone who has poultry or livestock in their care, to ensure that the welfare and needs of your animals are met in accordance with good husbandry.

The welfare of an animal covers many aspects: hunger, home, health, happiness and heart. Which are commonly known as the "Five Freedoms".
