The last week has seen an incredible amount of racing action from around the world with some great results for RED MILLS customers.
We were delighted to be able to play our part in making sure feed landed on time for these horses at venues around the world and that their diet remained consistent. Horses are resilient and most are accustomed to the travel but to maintain good health and performance it is essential that their nutritional needs are looked after.
Our unique Nutrient Fresh Management System packaging means that the feed also travels well and when opened by our customer all over the world, it is as fresh as the day it was made in Goresbridge.
The action kicked off last Tuesday with the world famous Melbourne Cup where Joseph O’Brien won it for the second time with Twilight Payment.
What a tough, brave horse, to make all in the #MelbourneCup 🏆, great ride too, incredible @JosephOBrien2 @JyeMcNeil https://t.co/i9FEf2daof
