Blue Ribbon Stockfeeds was founded in 2010 by Andrew and Liz Childes. Blue Ribbon’s purpose is not to be the biggest producer of stockfeed, but to concentrate on customer support and helping Queensland clients develop their industry. Blue Ribbon Stockfeeds is a family owned company that is 100% Australian owned using Australian grown products in all their feeds.
Andrew Childes, Nutritional Advisor and Managing Director of Blue Ribbon Stockfeeds, knows the rural industry. He spent his childhood on a dairy farm outside Oakey, west of Toowoomba, finding out first-hand the effect animal nutrition has on milk production. While working on the Dairy farm Andrew completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Animal Production (majoring in Animal Nutrition and Genetics) through UQ in Gatton.
Andrew works closely with Jim Wade (Wade Agricultural Consultants) to design feeds that include newly developed ingredients that will benefit the animal’s health, wellbeing and aid in increasing production. They both keep up to date with changing technology, and also offer educational nutrition seminars throughout the year. Feed advice, Nutritional seminars, Agricultural shows and Events are regularly updated on our Facebook page, please like this page for access to these updates and up-coming events.
