Hugh Archibald, Feedworks

Hugh is a ruminant nutritionist with over 20 years of experience in the Australian Ruminant Nutrition and Animal Health industries. In particular he has worked closely with a number of leading dairy academics in the area of TMR/PMR formulation, forage management, bunk management and getting the most from TMR based systems. Hugh presented on some of the techniques he uses to objectively assess the consistency and appropriateness of TMR systems, some of the key areas to watch when mixer wagon use is assessed, and some general information on how to help farmers get the best value from mixer wagon investment.
