Why invest in a new slurry store setup?
Slurry stores, also known as slurry tanks, pits or lagoons, can provide a number of benefits for farmers who use them to store and manage animal waste on their farms. Some of these benefits include:
- Nutrient management: Slurry stores can help farmers manage the nutrients in their animal waste. By storing the slurry, farmers can spread it on their fields at the most appropriate time for maximum nutrient uptake, reducing the risk of nutrient loss to the environment.
- Improved soil health: When slurry is spread on fields, it can improve soil health by increasing organic matter content, soil structure, and water-holding capacity.
- Cost savings: Using slurry as a fertiliser can reduce the need for commercial fertilisers, which can save farmers money.
- Reduced odour: Slurry stores can help reduce odour from animal waste, which can improve the quality of life for farmers and their neighbours. You also need to consider DEFRA compliance, in relation to odour, as well as safe slurry storage.
- Environmental benefits: By using slurry as a fertiliser, farmers can reduce the amount of runoff from their fields, which will help to protect water quality in nearby streams and rivers.
Common Slurry Store Questions
What is the best slurry storage?
Realistically, this is all dependent on the size of your farm, your cattle and how much slurry is produced daily. For some, a simple slurry pit may be the best option, while others may prefer a steel panel tank. As it stands, our steel mesh tanks are our most popular option, providing a versatile, easy-to-install option with a large capacity.
How do you store slurry?
To properly store slurry, you’ll need an appropriate storage solution – ideally, a slurry tank. Whether it’s a mesh tank or a steel panel tank, you need to talk to the experts to figure out what works best for your farm. And the experts? That’s us!
How much slurry storage do I need per cow?
The typical dairy cow produces around 20 litres of slurry a day, so you need to implement a storage solution with the appropriate capacity. For instance, a 50-cow herd will need storage that can handle around 1,000 litres of slurry every single day. But if you’re a little unsure, let us help. Fill out the form and we can establish a bespoke solution for your farm.
What are the different options available for slurry storage on farms?
We offer a range of slurry storage options to suit your farm’s needs. From slurry tanks – steel or mesh panel – to slurry pits and lagoons, we’ve got it all. Each option has its own unique benefits, depending on what you’re after. Slurry tanks are a great option if you’re short on space and need a solution fast, as they’re quick and easy to install, while slurry pits or lagoons are great for larger farms and can hold a lot of slurry. But don’t worry, our team of experts will work with you to determine the best solution for your farm.
How can I determine the most suitable slurry storage system for my farm?
Determining the most suitable slurry storage system for your farm can be tricky on your own, as you’ll need to take into account the size of your farm, the types and amount of animals you have, the amount of slurry you produce and of course, your budget. But that’s what we’re here for! With years of experience, our team will assess your operations to develop the best, bespoke solution for you.
What are the environmental benefits of efficient slurry storage?
Investing in effective slurry storage and management is the best way to do right by our planet. By storing slurry properly, with the right slurry tank, lagoon or pit, and fitting it with a slurry pit liner and an appropriate slurry store cover, you’ll keep everything secure, reduce contaminative leaks and spills and prevent harmful emissions and nasty odours from escaping. That way, you can rest easy knowing you’re doing your part for the environment, and your farm!
