Maximise the benefits of muck & slurry

When: December 14th 2017 10:30 to 14:30
Location: DG9 9BQ

Moir Environmental

The Programme:  Slurry, farmyard manure and dirty water are all valuable by-products of dairy farms. The recently refreshed AHDB Nutrient Management Guide (RB209) shows that muck is worth £9.20/tonne and a cubic metre of slurry has a value of £3.20 in NPK alone.

The new guide helps calculate soil nitrogen supply using the field assessment method and changes grassland nitrogen recommendations to focus on target yield. Join Agricultural Consultant; Stuart Moir of Moir Environmental Ltd and David Ball, Technical Manager at AHDB Dairy at this event to find out how RB209 can help exploit the financial potential of your slurry and manure. 

What we will cover:

  • How best to store and use slurry and muck to release their true value
  • Using AHDB Slurry Wizard to calculate volumes produced and storage capacity
  • How to produce a Nutrient Management Plan
