Professional & Affordable Grassland Management Advice
Murphy Grassland Services was set up with the aim to provide farmers with efficient and accurate ways to manage their farm both more efficiently and cost effectively. The company carries out farm mapping, soil sampling, communication whiteboards and grass measuring as part of its services. Below is greater detail of what these on farm services entail:
Our grass measuring service has proven very popular and beneficial this year amongst our derogation farmers. Not only does it improve the individual’s grassland management, but also achieves EU regulation for strategic planning. This service can be provided weekly to allow for appropriate stocking rates, or as required to give you a better understanding of grass measuring.
Accurate measurements of fields/paddocks are obtained using the grasshopper application and an ATV. On completion, digital maps are sent individually to each farmer for printing. Alternatively, we can provide 4ft x 2ft customised whiteboards displaying your farm map. This is a great option which allows for improved note taking and communication amongst your staff.
We take our samples using an ATV quad and mounted ‘Wintex soil sampler’. This allows for more accurate and efficient sampling across all terrain. Where required samples can also be taken on foot. Recently we teamed up with ‘FarmTeam’, a Carlow based company, to use their app, ‘Livesoil GPS’. By providing a location stamp to each sample, this app gives the farmer peace of mind in relation to our work. On receipt of the soil results we team up with our clients to discuss and improve the soil health.
At ‘Murphy Grassland Services‘, we produce various 4ft x 2ft whiteboards which include grazing planners, farm maps and note taking boards. All premium quality boards are waterproof and very effective communication tools on the farm.
