Andrew Marriage, Commercial Nutritionist

Department: Pig and Poultry – Technical & Nutrition team

Working within the Homemix sector

“My role as the commercial nutritionist for Homemix Nutrition covers both pig and poultry species.”

“Homemix Nutrition designs and supplies premixes for customers who mix their own pig and poultry rations on farm.”

“I’ve worked at ForFarmers for a total of 23 years, I started as a feed formulator, then moved to account management for the South West of England in the poultry team, before applying my nutrition skills to develop bespoke Homemix solutions for our customers which I’ve been doing since 2012.” 

“Ultimately, my role is focused on working with producers to deliver excellent on farm performance through bespoke nutrition tailored to their unique needs.”

“I work collaboratively with our strategic partner, Trouw Nutrition, who manufacture the premixes we design.  I also work closely with our DML team as Homemix customers also have a requirement for straights or liquid co-products.

My typical day

“I work with customers to optimise the performance of their livestock, making the most of the crops they grow.  As well as reviewing livestock performance we analyse customer’s cereal grains to adjust diets to reflect raw material quality and ingredient costs.”

“My aim is to make their business both more financially and environmentally sustainable. Most recently we’ve been exploring opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint across both Pig and Poultry farms.”

“I particularly enjoy working with customers that market their own produce be that Pork, Eggs, Free Range Chicken or Turkeys.”

My colleagues

“I work with many teams across ForFarmers, with colleagues across both pig and poultry, and the dry, moist and liquid teams.”

“There’s a great mix of experience in the teams, with everyone dedicated to the success of our customers.”

“I enjoy the international perspective which ForFarmers offers, the knowledge within this wider network of teams is very impressive.”
