We have been delighted to be working with Connolly’s RED MILLS. They have offered great advice in creating feeding programs for the stock. The horses are in great condition, and they offer a quick and accurate delivery service.

We have used RED MILLS GroCare Balancer at Ringfort Stud for many years. It provides a balanced nutritional feed for foals and mares. It is reassuring to know we raise sound horses with it and thankfully we have had great success, in the sales ring and on the track.

I cannot recommend the team at Red Mills enough for the quality service and sound advice they have provided. From the first consultation to being able to order feed directly to my local feed merchant (rather than driving 120km round trip every 2 weeks!) and most importantly the great condition that my horses are in despite living in one of the toughest areas of the west coast has been a godsend for me and the horses.
