We have an extensive range of fencing materials in stock designed to support all farming enterprises such as sheep, cattle and poultry. We can supply a choice of timber namely UK grown spruce tanalised posts, UK grown larch redwood posts and imported slow grown redwood timber for posts for greater durability.
Our "AGRILAST" range of imported redwood timber are extremely popular. These posts are primarily sourced from the Baltics and Belarus, the climatic conditions in these countries resulting in a slow grown redwood that has greater natural strength and durability. The timber is kiln dried to a moisture content of 28% prior to treatment ensuring full sapwood penetration of the preservative in accordance with BS8417, and we can offer a manufacturer guaranteed service life of 15 years on these.

Providing the correct nutrient balance to meet your crop needs in a timely and efficient manner is essential.

We also offer granulated lime from Omya that can be applied to established grassland at any time of year and is ideal for rapid pH adjustment. Soil testing and recommendations are available from our own staff and manufacturers representatives.

With ever decreasing margins in the livestock sector it is more important than ever to ensure that grass leys are performing to their optimum. This can only be achieved by a programme of regular reseeding. We stock the Sinclair McGill leading brand of seed mixtures and when it comes to grass seed quality, Sinclair McGill's no-compromise approach is simple - they aim to deliver less weed seeds and more live seeds than any other company. By specifying the Sinclair McGill brand, you really can make a significant difference to the performance of your new ley mixture
Silage Sheets & Crop Packaging
At HDG Farm Supplies we stock a wide range of packaging and protective products, such as bale wrap, net wrap, baler twine and silage sheets from top brands such as BPi, Silawrap and Novatex .
In recent years, our customers have also started to apply Visqueen Clingseal – an additional, thinner, more flexible, low permeability film placed underneath the black silage sheet to reduce wastage. These new generation clamp sheets sit directly beneath the traditional silage sheet where they closely follow and cling to the clamp surface to prevent pockets of trapped air forming which in turn significantly reduces aerobic spoilage.
All of the high quality silage and hay products we stock are designed to give you consistent harvesting results, cost-effectively
Secure Covers make sheeting up silage clamps quick, clean and easy. Made from tough interlocked knitted HDPE, Secure Covers are used over silage sheets and fixed in place using Secure Gravel Bags. Once fitted, Secure Covers' unique construction disperses wind gusts ensuring that the silage sheet remains in place on the silage pit.
Flexible Secure Covers reduce surface waste by keeping the silage sheet in close contact with the silage surface. The finely knitted mesh helps to prevent bird damage to the silage sheet and when pulled down, stops birds feeding on the feed face.
Secure Covers are available in 16 sizes and have a 10 year full UV stability guarantee
