Clinwil Nutrition ServicesThe trace element specialists, linking forage feeding to trace elements FORAGE LINKCASE STUDIES
Forage makes up over 70% of a ruminants feed yet it’s the only feed we use without a “label”. At CNS we take the “guess work” out of feeding forage by analysing not just for feed values but also for minerals, trace elements and antagonists. Minerals and trace elements are the foundations of all Ruminants diets and so the importance of balancing these elements are essential for improving health and performance of your stock. We advise a complete mineral, trace element package for your farms livestock, and because we are independent we can give you the best advice on what sort of supplementation suits your stock.

Soil & Forage Analysis
Soil & Crop Nutrition
Chris Williams became involved with Innovis in autumn 2018. Chris has played a role in understanding the mineral and trace element requirement of the farming operation, taking in soil, grass, silage and water samples for full detailed analysis. Chris’ expertise and 30 years of experience was apparent as he developed a bespoke mineral bucket for the different classes of livestock on the farm.
Performance from our nucleus flock has dramatically improved under Chris’ guidance and we feel that the grass quality and genetic potential is at last being fulfilled. We have failed to get into this position working with a number of other mineral/trace element suppliers and veterinarians over the years.
We have been very impressed with Chris’ low key but professional approach to our farming system, taking on board comments from our grassland advisors and vets and tailoring an approach that accommodates everyone.
I can happily endorse Chris to other businesses and do so regularly
Clinwil Nutrition Services – knowledgeable, approachable and supportive company being readily available to answer questions whilst offering a common-sense approach to helping with on farm nutritional issues or queries. We have benefitted from specifically formulated feed buckets that have been designed to supplement and work with our home-produced forage in a format that works for our farm. As a result, we have had bigger lambs getting to their feet quickly with more ‘get up and go’ and ewes showing improved maternal instincts and having more milk.
Products may be marginally more expensive per unit but the reduction in amount of buckets fed due to the ewes nutritional needs being met thanks to the specific formulation has resulted in half the amount of buckets being needed so has actually cost us less than an off the shelf product. We have definitely benefitted from your advice, support and encouragement and look forward to continuing to work with you to get the best from our livestock
We have been using Clinwil Mineral Feed buckets for a number of years for our Sheep and Cattle and found them to be ideal for us and the needs of our livestock. They seem to have all the nutritional elements and requirements for our sheep on our grazing marshes all year round, and the ewes, rams and lambs all look in good condition.
The buckets are presented to them full time and we find that because we’ve been doing it so long now, they only take it if necessary. I can surely recommend these products. The Cattle are grazed on the marshes in the summer and have a suckler cow or young stock bucket, and the nutritional elements have been very good, and the animals look in good condition.
Winter months the cattle are put on a high element mineral feed supplied loose, which is mixed in with the food and I am sure this has benefitted our cattle breeding. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these products.”
