Former dairy farmer of the year reduces fertiliser usage with Sobac

January 9, 2023 4:26 pm

In recent years, more and more farmers are focusing on the overall health of their soil, worm population and root depth; essentially, bringing their soil back to life. 

Soil is comprised primarily of organic matter, rock particles, air, water and micro-life. A healthy soil will help the uptake of nutrients into the plant and animals will have access to better quality forage. 

Noel O’Toole is a third-generation dairy farmer based in east Galway milking 180 cows on 45ha. Noel has been using Sobac products on his land for the last four years.

Noel uses both Sobac’s products, Bacteriolit and Bacteriosol, on his land. Bacteriolit is added to the slurry and spread on the grazing platform and Bacteriosol pellets are spread with a fertiliser spreader on the out farms.
