Technical Expertise

As the leading stock feed producer in Western Australia for over 110 years, Milne has built a reputation for technical excellence in product development and production. Our extensive Research & Development programme is focused on delivering innovative feed solutions that create greater efficiencies and profit opportunities for our customers.

Milne Feeds has a strong Technology division that, along with our Research & Development team, is continually developing and improving our products. Our technical expertise in developing feed solutions is thoroughly supported by an extensive program of trials run in accordance with Animal Ethics approval. All our new feeds are tested extensively in trials, conducted using several formats including individual animals, small pen trials and commercial scale trials. Every trial is closely managed by experienced stock persons. The results are meticulously collated, analysed and used for developing our rations. Therefore, customers can be confident that when we say a product will perform, we have the research to support it.
Unique to Milne Feeds is our revolutionary Hyfibe® technology, developed following a major R&D program. Hyfibe® provides ruminants with a balanced, safe feed that delivers cost effective production of meat, milk, and fibre, and increases the profit of producers. Our Hyfibe® technology neutralises the build-up of lactic acid in the rumen and maximises the microbial population, allowing optimum growth and production. All Milne Feeds' products have provided each respective livestock sector with cutting edge feed solutions and, in many cases, revolutionised traditional feeding practices.  Our team of dedicated nutrition experts is continually striving to improve our existing products and develop next-generation feed solutions.
