We’re delighted to announce the launch of own range of milk replacers, for calves, lambs, kids and piglets. The milk powders are made exclusively for us by French company, Lacto Production, in their purpose-built blending facility in Montauban-de-Bretagne, close to Rennes in Brittany.
BDC agri (the new trading name of Black Diamond Commodities Ltd) has been working with Lacto Production for the last ten years, supplying whey powders into UK pig creep manufacturers.
Lacto Production manufacture over 25,000 tonnes of milk powders, and export to over 50 countries, with large markets in the Middle East and SE Asia. Their modern facility has full laboratory facilities and is accredited to QS certification. They also have a dedicated in-house haulage company to service the domestic French market.
BDC agri calf milk replacers are based on varying content of skimmed milk powder (SMP), rather than cheaper whey-based ingredients, with three different formulations, incorporating 15%, 35% and 50% SMP.
BDC agri is based on Mersea Island, the most easterly inhabited island in the British Isles, and is owned by husband and wife team Greg and Juliet Dunn. When Steve Graffham joined the company in 2017, he brought with him a lifetime’s experience as a dairyman, and developed the BDC agri range of milk replacers using his practical knowledge of ruminant nutrition.
Individual bags of BDC agri milk replacers can be purchased from our online shop. For orders and enquiries over 100kg and wholesale prices, please contact Steve on 01206 381521 or 07507 36033 or email email@example.com.
