Forage Team

Matt Rance


Matt Rance is the technical manager of our forage services team and also a key member of our ruminant technical team.

Matt’s background is in dairy consultancy and practical farm management, and he joins our team to help us provide our customers with a holistic approach to feeding livestock by bringing together nutrition and innovative grassland management.

He achieves this through maximising outputs from forage crops by understanding soil, muck, fertiliser, plant genetics and crop storage and how they all work together to our benefit alongside optimised nutrition advice.
“Farming conditions change constantly and I feel that our job is to try help you understand the options but ultimately let you make the choice.  There is no one key solution or product that will achieve profitability on farm, rather lots of pieces to a puzzle that we can solve together.
