Roto Grind is a unique concept delivering improved efficiency on some of the UK’s best farms. Providing a solution to the previously time consuming task of feeding a consistent source of long fibre in dairy and beef rations, Roto Grind will reduce your feeding time and provide a much improved diet to your cattle, resulting in improved animal performance.
With Roto Grind’s grinding method, very few moving parts are required and the machine has no belt, chain or gear box drives to wear out. Fewer moving parts mean less upkeep, maintenance and running costs.
Roto Grind utilises a unique shear plate system in conjunction with long heavy hammers to produce a simple machine. It does not require screens and uses much less horsepower than conventional grinders. Fineness of grind can be controlled with the shear plates.
Roto Grind can also been used for the following:

Since using the Roto Grind, our incidents of displaced abomasums have gone from an average of 7 per month to an occasional one. The dry cows are now eating 6kg of straw and we have virtually no feed rejected in the trough. Superb machine, and massive saving on time needed to mix our rations. We don’t need knives in our diet feeder now.Mike Miller,
I run a 500 cow dairy farm and was looking for a solution to reduce the time required to process my rations. Processing straw in the rations was taking a considerable length of time and was inconsistent, resulting in a proportion of longer unchopped straw being left in the troughs as refused feed. Having never seen a Roto Grind in action, Enegis gave me a demo of the machine and we spent an hour processing all types of bales, including wheat, barley and rape straw to demonstrate the throughput of the machine and the consistency of the chop length to 2-4â€ using my own tractor. This straw was then fed through the rations and cow performance monitored for the following weeks. Improved yield on the milkers, and higher intakes of the dry cows ration convinced me to go with a 760 model. We have now been using the Roto Grind for over two years and processes straw for a number of local farms in the area.Phil Mansell,
With wood shavings becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, we were looking for a solution to our poultry bedding supply. Having recently purchased a dual chop type machine, we found it took a long time to process the straw to a suitable length for bedding the birds. A machine capable of milling the material to a 1.5-2cm length was priority, but this machine would need to be significantly faster than the dual chopper to convince us to upgrade. Having discussed our requirements, Enegis brought us a Roto Grind to trial. Processing time was reduced from 25 minutes to just 3 minutes. Birds were then monitored on the Roto Grind straw for two weeks, then we swapped our previous chopper for a Roto Grind 760.Rob Herrod,
In conjunction with our nutrition advisor (Hefin Richards of Profeed nutrition), we had been feeding high fibre rations to our cows for many years. We were looking for a method of reducing the time needed to process the rations and deliver more consistency to the diets. Hefin had witnessed first hand the Roto Grind and its benefits on other farms and suggested we look at the unit. We decided to try the Roto Grind for ourselves and have now been using the machine to chop for a number of local farms including the Gold Cup winning Shanael Herd, Evesham. Seeing the benefits of the processed straw in improved cow health and better yields, we think it’s one of the best machines we have invested in.Richard Pearman,
