What prompted you to use SlurryKing?

I wanted the crust to be eaten away. Before, you could have walked over the top of the crust. Also, when I would mix it up, the dirty water would come out ok, but floor solids were left behind. Simon Dodds from Harbro recommended I use SlurryKing.

What happened next?

I applied the product as per the instructions. The smell was greatly reduced when spreading and the slurry was far more consistent, leaving much less solid material on the leaves of the grass.

What have you saved?

I have saved time and money on pumps. It would take a while and so I used to hire in specialist mixing equipment. I haven’t had to hire this in since using SlurryKing. I can’t put a price on it yet but I expect to get more grass due to less leaf contamination. I’ll be aiming to inject slurry from now on - the slurry is now more consistent and able to be injected.

Would you recommend SlurryKing products to other farmers?

Yes, and I have been recommending it to a number of neighbours.
