Agriculture Works

We take on a wide variety of work in the local agricultural community with the bulk of the duties coming in the form of fertilizer spreading, lime spreading, slurry spreading etc.

All our agriculture machinery are maintained in a prime condition and the equipment is calibrated for an even application.  We work closely with the customers with the aim of having all fertilizer spread before mid September.

All machine drivers are experienced and skilled with a good knowledge of farming.

Lime spreading is a must, without Lime the land will neither respond or produce in quality and quantity. We work to the regulated guidelines which are set in place.

Slurry should be recycled on land set aside for feeding such as - hay, hay-ledge or silage in one application in the growing season.  Pig slurry is used on grazing lands, first cut silage and cereals.

Every step possible will be taken to minimize smell by adopting a common sense approach:

(a) Avail of best weather conditions.  (b) Use of best practices. 

Farm Health and Safety code of practice is at all times incorporated in our work.
