COW CARE CLUB

Join the exclusive customer
club that helps you boost milk
production and profit, with real
data, tools and advice.

REAL MILK DATA, REAL RESULTS

There are a lot of inputs on your farm that affect one key output: the milk. Through this customer-only, dairy farmer club, we give you the real milk data, tools and advice, to help you get real results.

After 20 years with another supplier, farmer Jason Treacy made the switch to Riverbank’s Cow Care feeds. Now milking an extra 5 litres a cow, Jason’s fat test has also jumped from 2.7% to 4%. He couldn’t be happier with results. “The cows are happier too. They’re all looking fatter and better conditioned.”

After switching to Riverbank’s Cow Care feeds a year ago, farmer Stewart Dyke says that the increase in milk production is the biggest single jump he’s seen in 35 years. “Our cows came up quite a bit, about 3 to 4 litres a day. I was pretty pleased.”
