Heygates High Quality Game Feeds

Heygates game feed

Heygates Country Feeds is a family run business, with their head office located in Northampton. At their site is their flour and feed mill. Heygates manufacture a wide selection of animal feeds that range from farm animals all the way though to rabbits and goats.

Game feed is a huge selling point for the company and they manufacture a full range of game feed that is available seasonally. Heygates Game Feeds are manufactured from the highest quality raw materials at Bugbrooke Mill. They have over 40 year of experience of making specialist game feeds and the rations have been developed to be the best on the market.

Avatec is added to chick and grower feeds to help prevent coccidiosis. Feeds containing Avatec must be withdrawn at least five days before the birds are killed for human consumption.

The antibiotic Aurofac 250 is available across the game feed range at inclusion rates of 1.2 kg, 1.6 kg and 2.4 kg per tonne as prescribed by your vet (subject to minimum order size requirements). Our medications are also available – please call us to discuss further.

The natural feed additive Avipro is included as standard across the Heygates range of grower and breeder rations.
