Stuart Shepherd, Moons Farm, Garstang: “Our large underground tanks used to be difficult to pump out due to crusting. Since changing things, the slurry stays liquid, making it much easier to pump. There is little or no ammonia and the nutrients have helped produce excellent grass crops each summer”.
James Rogerson, Game Farm, Singleton: “We were never able to empty the slurry tank so completely until doing this. When spreading slurry now, it disappears into the soil very quickly meaning cows can graze soon after.”
Nick Pocock, Idson Farm, Bridgwater: “The automated system has reduced our bought in fertiliser costs significantly. Our large pit is scraped into every day and drip-drip treatment every day gives much better results. There’s also been a noticeable improvement in grass palatability after spreading slurry.”
