Another happy customer using Alkabarley for the first time…

Tom Pemberton, a farmer based in Lytham on the Fylde coast, has taken delivery of his first load of Alkabarley from Taylors Grain Farm Services.

Many readers may know Tom, as he has been showcasing the farm and his day to day working routines through his own dedicated YouTube channel for many years. Tom, along with his dad ‘The Ginger Warrior’, have built up a following of tens of thousands of fans all around the world.

Alkagrain is cereal treated with our Home n’ Dry pellets, in this case barley to make Alkabarley. The result is an alkaline, air-stable, high starch feed material with added protein, to allow greater use of cereals in diets for dairy, beef and sheep.

Home n’ Dry can be used to treat any cereal crop, either at harvest or throughout the year. The grain can be rolled or crimped before clamping, or before feed-out. Or like Tom, you can purchase pre-treated grain (Alkagrain) from Taylors in Ormskirk.
