Low on Feed?

22 July 2010
National Farmers Union

UK - The NFU has reopened its online Fodder Bank to address the feed and silage shortages reported in many parts of the country.

The NFU’s online Fodder Bank is designed to help farmers with shortages and surpluses of cattle feed and bedding.

The free member benefit has helped hundreds of members since 2008, who posted what they were selling or searching for on a dedicated NFU Online web page.

It proved a boon to livestock farmers through two consecutive wet summers and now, with the opposite very much the case, we’re hoping it will again help to address shortages reported in a number of regions in recent weeks.

Farmers can either appeal for stocks, or list what they have to sell.
