Alltech Optigen® is Alltech’s nonprotein nitrogen (NPN) source to replace traditional vegetable protein sources for ruminants. It concentrates the nitrogen fraction of the diet, creating dry matter space for more fibre and energy. Optigen is a technology that enables feed formulation of rumen-friendly diets to meet the needs of the rumen microbial population more effectively, resulting in increased microbial protein, fibre digestion and efficiency of rumen nitrogen capture. This technology helps to stabilise rumen ammonia levels, ensuring that rumen bacteria have continued access to this essential food source Rumen-friendly diets are the goal for all feed formulators. Diets designed to promote rumen efficiency ensure the greatest profit without compromising cow health.

Cherwell Silos Limited


Cherwell Valley Silos Ltd have a long well established reputation for providing specialised cooked protein and oilseed products to the animal feed industry. Products available are CV-Soy - full fat soya (Profat typically 54%), and PURA LM (Profat 42%) - a mixture of domestic pulses and whole rapeseed recently upgraded with a lower moisture content for better handling characteristics and improved nutrient density. In addition we offer a UK Linseed based blend Linbean (Profat 38%) which is a highly digestible alternative to Linseed expellers. The main soya product is now conventional ‘Any origin’ (CVSoy A/O). We continue to specialise in the production of identity preserved, NON GM (CV-Soy HARD IP Non-GM ) and Organically produced (CV-Soy Organic) Full Fat soya, manufactured from Identity Preserved (HARD IP) Non GM soya beans or fully certified organically grown soyabeans. From Harvest 2017 we plan introduce a product derived from UK Soyabeans for selected niche markets. We can also supply raw whole,

NON GM or Organic

soyabeans. Centrally located in Oxfordshire and with our own transport operation, Cherwell Valley Silos are ideally situated to satisfy all customers nationwide. All products are available in bags and bulk ex stock and all full fat soyas are available in high quality pellet form for improved handling and storage characteristics. Valley Trading a grain trading operation specialises in local grain, rapeseed and pulses for both consumption in house and third party trades and offers a high quality local independent service to the arable farming community and feed compounding industry.

fermentation technologies, allowing a highly scalable production of bacterial protein meal. Uniprotein®, the end-product resulting from Unibio’s U-Loop® technology is a protein-rich biomass that addresses the world’s growing need for animal protein, which will continue to increase in line with population growth and the emergence of a large middle class with strong purchasing power. The product is the result of a natural process industrialized by Unibio and is not genetically modified. Uniprotein® is non-polluting as it is produced by a microbial culture with methane as the sole carbon and energy source. Uniprotein® is a close substitute to high-quality fishmeal (LT Fishmeal), but it can also substitute soybean meal, both being two increasingly scarce resources. This novel protein source disrupts the traditional food value chain while mitigating the traditional challenges by decoupling protein production from the fluctuating agriculture and stressed fishing industries. Crop and land can thus be used to produce food for humans instead of feed for animals. The ambition of Unibio is to become the world market leader within protein production based on methanotrophic bacteria, partly by own production and partly by licensing the production technology to international investors wishing to establish large-scale production
