Multicube Stockfeeds began in the 1980s with the idea of finding better and more efficient ways to feed Australian livestock. The business began with round and square bales for the equine industry. Noticing hay cubes had been popular in the United States for decades Robert Riddell could see the benefit to Australian farmers also.
Pressing hay is an energy-intensive business with large machinery running throughout the day to support the process. Fortunately, Multicube have been able to work with Flow Power to schedule manufacturing and packaging around peak times to keep energy costs low. They have installed the kWatch™ Intelligent Controller on site to avoid price events and reduce demand costs.
“We follow their advice on price events strictly and it’s saved us heaps in recent months,” says Sales Manager, Cameron Waters.
The business has been supplying Australian stock with feed for decades from their premises in Yarrawonga, Victoria. In 2017 they are branching out into international markets with their hay cubes.
“We’re hoping Flow Power can save us millions in the coming years as our production increases to meet demand”, says Manager, Bruce Riddell.
