Farming Supplies Store
Farming Supplies Stores have to stock everything that a farmer or smallholder may need at short notice due to unexpected events or damages which can happen. At RGH we do our best to cater for anything you might need by being able to stock items or source them as quickly as possible. In our yard we keep feeding equipment such as calf feeders, hay racks, ring feeders, heston feeders and troughs. Larger feed trailers are available to order.
Farming sundries like lambing or calving products are in the shop ready for when those seasons come around. Animal nutrition products like minerals in buckets or bags, milk powder, magnesium flakes and lump rock salt. Equine feeding equipment can also be sourced to order.
Harvesting products include baler twine, stretch wrap, netwrap, silage film, silage sheets, sila-cover, secure covers, tarpaulins, stack nets additives and sila seal. Stretch wrap is available in widths of 250mm, 375mm 500mm and 750mm and is 3, 5 or 7 layers of blown film depending on the manufacturer. The lengths are from 1500m to 2200m. It also comes in a variety of colours such as white, light green, dark green, black and pink which is in aid of cancer research. All of our stretch wrap is 100% recyclable.
Stretch wrap comes in thicknesses from 19micron to 25micron with 25micron being the recommendation for square or round bales. It needs to be able to withstand punctures, extreme hot or cold weather conditions and UV rays. Our stretch wrap is made with the most up to date technology there is today.
The majority of silage sheets are 3 layer however there are some 5 layer sheets on the market these days. The best silage sheets are constructed from virgin plastic while the newer 5 layer sheets are mostly made from reground plastic. Silage sheets come in lots of different sizes with thickness of 100mu 150mu or 200mu and are important to keep the temperature of your crop or maize balanced. It stops water and air leaks with low permeability to avoid leaks. Sila seal has been designed to prevent waste from the bottom, sides and top of a silage pit by creating a vacuum to force the oxygen to be absorbed by the fermentation happening in the clamp.
Net wrap is a knitted polyethylene netting manufactured for the wrapping of round hay bales. It is sold in 3000m or 3600m rolls from stock. All of our baler twine comes in packs of 2 bobbins, we have hay twine, medium twine, hesston twine and maxcord in the barn at all times. There are lots of galebreaker items that we can source to order as mentioned above. Our 8 x 25m stack net has been very popular recently with farmers, fruit growers and gardeners.
Trough needs are catered for at RGH supplies, with galvanised water troughs for cattle, sheep, pigs and other animals. We have galvanised normal water troughs from 36gal to 500gal with welded in service boxes or low level galvanised water troughs with a loose service box incase no box is required.The low level water troughs allow easier access for smaller animals. All of our galvanised troughs or service boxes include ball valves and floats, with connector elbows available in the shop.
Plastic JFC troughs and drinkers are becoming popular due to their strength, UV stability and high freeze/thaw cracking resistance. The troughs come in single, doubles or large sizes from 30gal up to 500gal. Feed troughs are also in stock for sheep, goats, pigs and cattle.
