NEW RUMEVITE OFFERS WIN-WIN ALTERNATIVE TO MOLASSED BUCKETS

A saving of up to £100 per tonne over bucket-based supplements, more
environmentally-friendly packaging, three new products and the introduction of a
versatile, reusable feeder are the key benefits being delivered by a launch of the new
Rumevite block range this summer.

After two years of trial work, one of the most trusted brands in UK agriculture has
been further developed. Speaking at the Royal Welsh Show, Rumenco commercial
director Nigel Lyon explained that the company is launching a range of blocks that
compete directly with molassed bucket supplements in terms of specification, function
and convenience – but at a considerably lower cost.

“Quite simply, in its new reusable feeder, Rumevite cuts out the high cost of plastic
buckets by around £80-£100 per tonne. Reducing plastic and plastic bucket disposal
issues also helps to protect the environment. It’s a win-win offer,” he claimed.
Rumenco is making seven key Rumevite products to suit virtually all feeding
situations, including three new products. “All the formulations provide the latest
recommended daily allowances of minerals and vitamins, in addition to energy and
protein to make up shortfalls in home-grown forages. Trial work over the last two years
has also demonstrated excellent palatability and consistent intakes,” he explained.

Rumevite product packaging is already easier to dispose of than empty buckets, but
convenience has now been further improved by an industry first – incorporating carry
handles in the bag to make transportation around the farm that much easier.

Rumenco has also developed a new, reusable feeder complete with carry handles,
ATV anchorage points, tow points and drainage slots for rapid rain water dispersal,
which cuts feed waste to a minimum. The new feeder and other equipment options –
such as wall/gate and spike feeders – will be made available as a ‘Rumevite starter
pack’ to encourage new users.

“We constantly monitor our product performance at independent institutes and on our
customers’ farms,” Nigel Lyon stressed. “And this latest launch reflects our commitment
to constant innovation in producing a feed supplement range that meets the changing
needs of farmers.

“We are confident the new Rumevite range offers livestock farmers a convenient,
cost-effective, low labour and minimal waste system for the feeding and supplementation
of dairy youngstock, beef and sheep.”
