Fertiliser planningFertiliser, Manure & Nutrient Plans

Historically these have been point accumulating components of environmental schemes (and still are in agreements pre Feb 2007), however in new agreements since Feb 2007 they have been removed.

They are a requirement for most quality assurance schemes and under NVZs which falls under Cross Compliance and can lead to reduction in your Single Farm Payment.

With the rapid increase in fertiliser prices the savings that can be made from correct targeting of nutrients through Fertiliser and Manure planning are huge.
Do you take into account the N,P & K that you apply from slurry and FYM and the potential reduction in purchased fertiliser.
Which poses the question can you afford not to be doing it?

These documents unfortunately cannot be done once and filed away, they need to be revisited and updated on a regular basis.

Our FACTS & BASIS qualified staff can provide training and forms so that you can confidently keep on top of these requirements yourself or we can keep them up to date for you.

Consistency and Dry Matter Intakes of a well balanced diet are the key drivers to performance in any ruminant enterprise.
Over 50 percent of your diet comes from preserved forage, which can change from field to field and will definitely change from year to year. This means that your ration and especially your winter ration will need evaluating on a regular basis to ensure that you can Minimise your feed cost/litre or Feed Cost/Kg live weight gain.

Forage planning is also very important so that forage stocks can be assessed and allocated to create a consistent ration over the winter period so that you do not run out or are spending Unnecessary Costs on forage replacers when they are not needed.

With feed prices doubling over the last 12 months it is imperative that you are getting the maximum return from your purchase feed and utilizing your forages full potential.

Many milk companies require a milk prediction which can have a bonus associated with it. These can also assist your budgets by providing you with an indication of income and highlight potential future shortfalls in cashflow.

Soil AdviceSoil & Cropping Advice

Everything in farming begins with the soil. But we tend to focus on what we grow and how we grow it rather than on the soil itself.

By focusing on the soil itself: on the Physical structure, and Biological and Chemical activity we can start to understand and influence hugely the quality, quantity and responsiveness of the crops that we grow.

Also by using alternative crops as brake crops, cover crops or partner crops can aid soil and nutrient management to ensure that you are maximising your resource in a sustainable manner.

We can help you focus on your soil as a resource and create an advice package that suits you. Whether your focus is on livestock health or improved quality of produce you grow.
