Through a series of articles, research projects and discussion pieces the equine nutrition specialists at Bishop Burton will be working alongside the Baillie Haylage team to share best practice, practical advice, case studies and top tips across a breadth of subjects. From managing equine dietary requirements through the transitioning of seasons to the importance of forage, this coverage will provide horse owners with expert insight into feeding.
The partnership has come about as the family owned, Baillie Haylage are always striving to provide their customers the very best service and support. With a continued commitment to lead at the forefront of the industry, their use of modern machinery and technology complements traditional methods to ensure their product is of the very best quality – 100% grass, dust free haylage without preservatives or additives. The partnership with Bishop Burton’s equine nutrition team delivers added value for their customers through the provision of expert advice and guidance on all matters relating to feeding.
Robert Baillie, Managing Director commented,
“At Baillie Haylage, we pride ourselves on being forward thinking in order to deliver the best possible service and products to our customers. We’re delighted to be working with Bishop Burton College to provide nutritional advice and are excited to learn the findings of various research projects.
Bishop Burton students will also benefit from the collaboration, through the opportunity to gain industry knowledge and experience with practical work placements in the business. This will expose them to a variety of different disciplines and areas of expertise within the organisation from producing and marketing to distribution of top-class grass forage. Baillie Haylage will also support the college with data and feed materials for research projects enabling students to access and understand essential theory they can then put into practice in their studies and in the future when they enter into employment.
Rebecca Brassington, Equine Academic Lead at University Centre Bishop Burton commented,
“Preparing our students for their future beyond college is a key part of our role as educators and relationships with sector leaders such as Baillie Haylage are fundamental to fulfilling this. Hands-on practical experiences within top-class organisations provide our students with invaluable insight and exposure to equine related industry.”
Rebecca is also excited to share the college teaching staff’s knowledge, insights and best practice with fellow horse lovers and equine practitioners. “Our partnership with Baillie Haylage is an amazing opportunity for the equine nutrition team to showcase their expertise. We have an abundance of highly experienced and knowledgeable professionals on the team at Bishop Burton who have real industry experience. In fact, the team have achieved 100% satisfaction from students in recent years for the teaching provision. It will be wonderful to share this expertise with the wider equine community.”
