The division was established with the primary aim of creating a stable market for SSK members and grain producers in the Southern Cape feed grain. Other important considerations were the better utilization of SSK’s infrastructure and existing staff. The division’s animal feed production plants are located at SSK’s Karringmelksrivier and Riversdal silo complexes.
A wide range of registered dairy and sheep feeds of quality are manufactured at SSK’s animal feed manufacturing plants in Karringmelksrivier and Riversdal. Delivery services (bags and bulk) are also available. Financing for purchases of animal feed qualifies according to SSK’s credit policy.
The Animal Scientist provides animal husbandry related information to producers with regards to animal nutrition, animal breeding, general animal management and basic animal health.
