Sustainable Soils provide consulting to help produce good health benefits from your soil. These include: more total and even spread of feed throughout the seasons, increased per animal production, lower animal ill-health costs, reduced reliance on fertiliser N inputs, and less pest and disease pressure.
I grew up on a dairy farm in South Auckland and went through the whole farming system, from farm worker to managing and share-milking until buying my own farm with my wife Rowena in South Otago.
Owning my own farm meant I developed an interest in soil and fertiliser and wanted to learn more about it for the health of my farm and animals. I was less than enthusiastic about using urea, sprays and chemical if I didn't have to.
I was using a consultant who had this same philosophy to consult on my farm and I discovered the system of balancing minerals and using lime and other natural products that are kinder to your animals.
