Wellard Feeds plays a key role in Wellard’s quality controlled live export supply chain.
The feed mill, located in the heart of Western Australia’s Wheatbelt at Wongan Hills, produces 50,000 tonnes of specially formulated feed pellets each year, primarily for Wellard’s pre-export quarantine and ships.
The provision of quality feed plays an integral role in ensuring the stock are healthy before they board a vessel, and when they walk off.
Protein and energy levels are constantly monitored to ensure livestock receive optimal nutrition during the voyage.
Wellard Feeds also produces a higher protein and energy pellet for Wellard to feedlot lambs. This enables Wellard to take advantage of pricing opportunities in the marketplace as well as providing the Company’s Beaufort River Meats abattoir with a consistent supply of high-quality lambs for processing.
