Great pasture requires good effluent management. The average dairy cow produces about $25 worth of nutrients annually – for a herd of 400 cows that’s $10,000 worth of nutrients each and every year.
By harnessing that effluent and dispersing it correctly on your farm, you’ll save money on fertiliser, improve your soil condition, maintain animal health, and assist your compliance.
A well-designed effluent system will also give you control over your application depth and rates. Following our initial site visit, WaterForce will assess your climate, landscape contour and soil water deficit to help prevent nutrient loss via ponding, runoff or leaching into the surrounding environment.
We’ll also assess your current system (if one exists) and ask about your specific farm operation and requirements.
We supply a wide range of pumps, stirrers and separators that are easy to use and will withstand the toughest conditions. We will then design a solution to collect effluent from your dairy shed, feed pad, wintering barn, road underpass and can also include silage leachates.
We can organise full installation on site and help train your staff on how to use your new effluent system to best effect. WaterForce also provides 24/7 after-sales support so you can rest assured help is always available should you need it.
