Invergold - distillers wet maize grain
22 Jan 2019
We are delighted to have signed an exclusive long term contract with Whyte & Mackay Distilleries to take the entire supply of their Distillers Wet Maize Grain – a co-product from the distillery process manufactured in the production of whisky at their Invergordon site. We have branded the product ‘Invergold’ – which references the source and the quality of the product from the award winning Distiller, as well as highlighting its nutritional benefits.Coupled with an existing long term contract for draff from Whyte & Mackay, this latest partnership between the two companies, dating back over 30 years, extends its provision of moist feeds to 60,000 tonnes + p/a.
he product will be available from February to April 2019, but is subject to availability as there has already been a huge amount of interest shown within the industry. A larger supply will become available from October 2019 ahead of the winter season. Early orders are currently being taken and we would advise anyone interested in the product to call early to avoid disappointment.
Robb Milne, Head of Trading at Harbro, commented on the recent agreement: “We are delighted that Whyte & Mackay have made the decision to keep this high nutritional product within agriculture and there has already been a great deal of early interest in the product, even though we are still waiting for the first delivery. With there predicted to be a forage shortage in certain parts of the country this winter, the product offers a more competitive solution to buying in silage and with superior performance benefits.”
Shane Healy, Production Director at Whyte & Mackay told us, “We are very proud to be supporting agriculture and the farming community with the supply of our spent grain and look forward to seeing the first batch coming out of the stills in the next few weeks. We hope it will be well received by the industry and will be interested to see how it performs on farm.”
