"Having total control over the quality of the feed is very important, and on-farm mixing ensures the best raw material quality and fresh feed for the animals. The cornerstones in feed production are proportioning, grinding, and mixing, and SKIOLD applies the most thoroughly tested technology and offers a wide range of products particularly within these fields." Mr. Aivars Kokts.
