Lactiv8

Certified Organic

Food For Ruminants Only

Overview

Direct Feeds Australia has designed certified products in the form of pellets & mixes. The main ingredients are to come from irrigation crops. This can be in the form of lucerne, wheat, corn, barley.

A premium certified organic feed that is affordable & produces top quality milk.

Overview

To reduce volatility and reduce risks of any supply issues, we have targeted crops that can be grown on irrigation. This allows us to form more strategic longer-term offtake agreements with our suppliers and means we are not so reliant on climatic seasonal conditions. This is because of the better predictability in costs and yields, which helps set a more stable price that satisfies both supplier and customer.   

Furthermore, in our certified organic pellets we have been able to add organic lucerne as a key ingredient. Once again because of the higher yielding crop and reliability through irrigation this allows us to provide good returns for the supplier per acre but reduce volatility and price per tonne to the customer.

Our aim and focus is not on being the cheapest feed all the time but having a sound strategy that protects both supplier, when the price is low and the customer, from when the prices spike to a level that it is unsustainable for them. Our strategies help manage that volatility!

Lactiv8 – Lead Feed Muesli

Lead Feed Muesli is our pre- calving feed, formed with high levels of microbial bacteria to stimulate the appetite of the cow before calving. This feed increases the strength of the cow and puts it in better shape leading into the calving, resulting in a drop in the number of calves pulled and a quicker return to the dairy. The Lead Feed Muesli also reduces the chance of metabolic issues after birth, a key factor in efficient production in the organic space. The use of antibiotics to treat such issues requires the cow to go into a withholding period before returning to the dairy, so it is essential that their use be minimised as much as possible.
