Vintage 1988 Model Wakely 20″ Roller Mill

2019-11-09T16:30:59+00:00November 29th, 2019|

Wakely 20" Roller Mill; 1988 Style. We recently came across this photo of a Wakely 20” roller mill from back around 1988. Doesn't it look great?  A tractor powered mill, it had an output of 2TPH. Greater roller for its day, It’s being a long time since we've seen the old workshop, and we would love to have the sign back for posterity!

Video: Grinding waste pasta to feed pigs and piglets

2019-11-19T14:45:48+00:00November 15th, 2019|

Grinding waste pasta for pigs and piglets Wakely mills are highly adaptable, here we are grinding waste pasta from the food industry, The ground meal will be fed to the pigs and piglets. Average particle size of the ground material is 95% under 500μm. Grinding the pasta makes it a lot more palatable to the animals, makes it easier for them to digest and allows them to extract more energy and nutrients from the food.

Winter Feeding of Cattle is Underway

2019-11-08T21:33:51+00:00October 8th, 2019|

The animals are mostly in at this stage. Thankfully we don’t expect any fodder shortages; this season was great for grass growth. These animals are being fed a ration of Silage, Straw and Grain concentrate. The stock should be finished by May / June time and they will be back out on grass for the summer months.
