Peterborough, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2014 -- Following recent Teagasc/GILL study of Irish farms, a key focus on fertility in terms of both cows and soil has been identified as one of the most important factors towards profitability in farming. Fertility in both soil and cows requires optimum management of resources such as fertiliser, water supplies and cattle feed and the findings are just as relevant to farmers in other countries, including the UK.
According to Agriland, the longer the cow is milking during the grass-growing season, the better. Farming costs are driven mainly by fertiliser and feed. The study took soil samples from all farms and only eight samples came back in optimal indexes, meaning that 92 per cent had issues. Due to the recent bad weather, feed costs are up and drought also had an impact last summer. Key strategies to ensuring fertility for UK farming lies in the management of valuable resources, such as fertiliser, rainwater and cattle feed, including molasses.
Plastic water tank specialist, Enduramaxx has built a reputation supplying tanks for all farm applications for a number of years and specialises in Rainwater Harvesting Tanks, Molasses Tanks and Liquid Fertiliser Tanks to help farmers manage the aforementioned valuable resources more effectively, thus helping them to achieve fertility more easily and for less money. By installing rainwater harvesting tanks, farmers can save on mains water fees, using excess water for watering cattle, watering crops and for cleaning.
Enduramaxx molasses tanks enable farmers to store molasses, the base of many animal feeds, for when it’s needed most. The company also produces liquid fertiliser tanks. With fluctuating fertiliser costs, Enduramaxx tanks are available in sizes through to 30,000 litres, enabling farmers to buy liquid fertiliser in bulk and also save time on mixing. With ample fertiliser available for the growing seasons, soil fertility levels will be easier to achieve.
