If you have not already done so for the winter ahead, now is the time to assess slurry storage facilities on your farm. The Ploughing often marks the time of the year when farmers will look forward to the coming winter and replace old or damaged slats.

Over the past eight years, we have seen a growth of approximately 350,000 dairy cows. This requires additional slurry storage capacity of approximately 450 million gallons.
