We have two main divisions – Agriculture Supply and Specialist Retail
Our Agriculture division supplies products to both livestock and arable farms.
Our feed activities include the manufacture of compound and blended products from our three main plants at Llansantffraid, Carmarthen and Rhosfawr. Additionally contract manufacturing arrangements with a number of other businesses ensure efficient and cost effective supply to customers outside our core trading areas. An extensive range of supplements has been developed under the Wynnstay brand including minerals, nutritional enhancers and feed blocks.
The arable activities primarily based at Shrewsbury, offer a full range of inputs to the arable and grassland farmer. Cereal and grass seed is processed using our modern seed processing plant and sold under our long established Hi-Gene brand. In May 2010 we were pleased to expand our arable activities through the acquisition of Woodhead Seeds Ltd in Yorkshire. To view the Woodhead Seeds Ltd website please click here. This business supplies a full range of cereal and herbage seeds as well as a full trading service for all combinable crops. GrainLink is a dedicated marketing service for farmers of arable crops. As one of the largest UK distributors of CF Fertilisers, Wynnstay is a major supplier of fertiliser throughout our trading area.
The Glasson Group was acquired in August 2006 and complements our main agricultural division. Based near Lancaster in the North West, Glasson acts as a shipper and trader of raw materials and operates its own port facilities at Glasson Dock. Owning shipping facilities gives a degree of independence in the procurement of raw materials for both the feed business and its own fertiliser production. In addition, it produces speciality ingredients for the pet food industry, and a range of products used in rations for young livestock.
Our Retail division consists of three activities. Our country store chain operates from over 50 locations across the Midlands, the North & South West of England and throughout Wales offering an extensive range of products for the professional farmer and country dweller. From pet and equine food, through to animal health products, hardware and clothing, we offer an increasing product range to an ever expanding customer base.
Operating under the Just For Pets brand, the retail division also operates a chain of over 20 dedicated pet product stores primarily based in the West Midlands. Offering expert advice together with an extensive range of products, Just For Pets promotes a one stop shop for all pet owners.
