Keeping herds healthy
GrainCorp Feeds Australia
Australia’s meat, wool, dairy and livestock industry are valuable major exports, and the country is one of the largest exporters of beef and lamb in the world. At GrainCorp, we help boost farm productivity by partnering with farmers to provide nutritious, high-quality, innovative and customised feed solutions to improve herd productivity
Cattle need phosphorus (P) for almost every vital bodily function, including building bones and teeth, metabolising fat, carbohydrates and protein, and milk synthesis…
What we do
We manufacture and supply molasses-based feed supplements and vegetable oil to enhance farm productivity in beef cattle, sheep, dairy cattle and other domestic livestock fed under a variety of systems and with differing nutritional needs.
Our brands include Molafos, Rumifeed and Energro, as well as products such as crude Molasses and Dry Feeds. Our feeds are developed to provide a variety of nutritional applications at various price points.
Our experienced services team also offers nutrition advice that supports our free RationAssist program, helping our intensive livestock customers meet their production targets all year round.
Feeds for a better future
Through our investment in Futurefeed, we have partnered with the CSIRO and forward-thinking companies to support the commercial production of Asparagopsis (red seaweed) whilst enabling continued research and development into its benefits. This marine-based animal feed is designed to reduce up to 90 per cent of methane emissions from livestock whilst at the same time increase feed efficiency. According to the United Nations, total livestock methane emissions currently account for over 5 per cent of all human-generated greenhouse gases every year, so this innovative feed can play a big role in tackling climate change. It also improves farm and feed productivity through a reduction in waste, so it makes good business sense as well as helping reduce emissions.
