Reducing Feed Waste: One of the most significant outlays at Lodge Farm is feed costs particularly feed waste. Myerscough College commissioned a Feed Waste Audit with Alltech which enabled further understanding of the value of underutilised feed inputs. This then enabled us to agree achievable targets, define clear actions to meet these targets and understand the return on investment for these action points.
