Welcome to the Autumn edition of In the Mix. How time fly’s! COVID seems to be settling down and a sense of normal is descending down on us, but is it really? The chaos of supply chains, raw material pricing and availability continue to cause concern with no light at the end of the tunnel. Throw in the recent drenching of rain? The devastation from Gympie to Tweed, to Lismore and beyond? Our thoughts must reside with those that lost so much. The conflict in Ukraine is unsettling an already unsettled world and the markets are becoming more uncertain and ever changing. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to ensure effective supply of products to the farm. As we look ahead its very clear that effective forage planning with Silage at the centre is the key to future proof your business.

Welcome to the Summer Edition of In The Mix. Well we thought 2020 was a rollcoaster, how's 2021 been for you? For the team at Lallemand it's been a full year. From our first stand at Beef Week with thousands of visitors to our multi-stakeholder site, to a booming silage season across Australia. The rains continue with a La Nina pattern now entrenched across Eastern Australia. The old adage was “make hay while the sun shines” is now “make silage whilst you have excess feed, future proof your business”. SmaXtec, our live rumen bolus monitoring device continues to gain traction and we’re seeing dairy farmers learn the real value of temp, activity and rumination monitoring delivering early intervention strategies for cows. It's amazing. What will 2022 bring? Who knows? But the team at Lallemand are ready to help you make more money on your farm.

Welcome to the Spring Edition of In The Mix. Despite the challenges of COVID on the urban communities the time for Rural Australia to shine is now, and shining it is. Like a beacon of light for the economy. Everything is firing, from protein prices, trade, the rain, and the property prices. The feeling in rural Australia seems as buoyant as its ever been. And records indicate this years winter is just a “good old fashioned one” in most parts. But what hides around the corner? Supply chain pressures and the prices of certain raw materials are increasing and both factors will impact our businesses. Be sure to get your planning on track from forage, to farm inputs for all sectors. Technology is gaining traction everywhere and we’re pleased to partner with SmaXtec Rumen Boluses to continue their deployment across Australian dairy farms. The uptake of the rumen specific live yeast, Levucell SC, continues at strong levels as producers look for natural solutions to improve rumen function, improve health and well being, and ultimately performance of livestock.

Welcome to the Autumn Edition of In The Mix. What an amazing time we find ourselves in! Are we coming to the end of the pandemic with the arrival of vaccines? How long with the rain stick around? Did I grow and store enough forage (as silage) for my future proofed business? There are still a number of uncertainties in our day to day lives and we should never stop looking for solutions to make our decision making process easier. Whether it's different bacterial strains to drive different silage outcomes that deliver more flexibility or novel biological solutions in poultry looking at biofilms and housing hygiene. It's exciting to see the industry adopting new technology across all aspects of agriculture. Read on to keep up-to-date with Lallemand's movements in the world of forage and feed ingredients.

Welcome to the Summer Edition of In The Mix. Its already been said by so many, so why deviate from the truth, wasn’t 2020 the craziest of years! What a roller coaster of emotions, of business ups and downs, of changes in communications, of reduced traffic, of a shift in social behaviours. Despite a challenging 2020, it has brought a pretty positive agricultural environment, with record cattle prices, falling grain prices, abundant silage harvest and a strong look to summer in an La Nina weather prediction.
