As part of our manure/slurry spreading services we complete 1 complimentary sample of your slurry and report how valuable your nutrient recycling is to their business both financially and agronomically.

Liquid Manure/Slurry Application
Additional Benefits to slurry spreading:
- Improves whole farm nutrient balance by effectively recycling nutrients back through the system.
- Soil & Crop Adviser recommended.
Benefits of Good Agitation:
- Most effective way of agitating lagoon solid build up on the market.
- Well-agitated manure is predictable and consistent. Its nutrient content can be spread evenly throughout the field when applied through quality slurry application.
- Good agitation and application increases organic material in soil which also increases moisture retention.
- By reducing hills and solid build up you increase storage capacity in the lagoon.
