Free Nutritional Advice
RECO are offering the opportunity for beef and dairy farmers to receive free monthly email bulletins that offer independent nutritional advice, statistics and techniques that have been compiled by independent nutrition consultant Robert Cope of CowKnowHow.
With the help of Mr Cope, RECO want more British farmers to have access to important information that could benefit their livestock and their respective businesses.
Mr Cope said “Knowledge is power. Many savings can be made by simple management changes rather than spending on products that are not needed.”
“It is difficult for many farmers to keep up to date with nutritional aspects as they are busy farming."
Mr Cope explained that everyone in the industry ‘should only benefit from these bulletins’, which includes topics such as ‘Grazing’, ‘Overfeeding Minerals’, and ‘Feed Efficiency’.
“The bulletins will be informative, but above all else they will be practical, as they are not written by a desk nutritionist, but by someone who is a boots on the ground advisor. Everyone should gain from reading them.” He added.
The bulletins will be sent via email on a monthly basis until 2016 for every beef or dairy farmer that requests to start receiving them.
Reco General Sales and Marketing Manager Patrick Desmond said that “In these difficult times the advice supplied by Robert, although supplied free, will give timely advice and reminders as to how unnecessary costs can be avoided and how simple actions can maximise positive margins.”
For more information or to start receiving them simply send us an email stating that you would like to receive these bulletins and if you are a beef or dairy farmer to - firstname.lastname@example.org - or call us on 01480 401501.
RECO will then send you an email PDF offering Robert’s nutritional advice on a monthly basis for free.
The first bulletin titled ‘Feed Coversion Efficiency’ is available on request now.
