Spring 2013 Newsletter – Muck and Slurry – a New Venture

This year we decided to begin offering muck and slurry spreading as a service. It was great to add a new service and we have learnt a lot over the winter. The new “spinner disc” machines allowed us to evenly spread all different types of manure, compost and general farm waste. Aided by load cells in the spreader and GPS guidance we were able to take what is generally quite an uneven type of product and spread it surprisingly accurately over specified areas. We also had many clients take advantage of trialling some manure or compost supplied by us. Already this has shown some pleasing results. Soon we will be offering cultivation and drilling services as well, with the addition of a plough, cultivator, roller drill and new Allen direct drill.
