Slurrycal is a dual purpose high ph lime blend for use in cubicles and livestock stalls. It is designed to provide high levels of protection against disease-causing bacteria in the cubicle and uniquely enhance the slurry.
Slurrycal has been developed in conjunction with several international technology companies to enhance the slurry when it is brushed down and mixed into the slurry tank/store.
Benefits of Slurrycal
• Creates a homogenous slurry
• Reduction in odours
• Breakdown and prevention of crusting
• Increased fertiliser value of slurry
• Reduction in agitation costs
• Promotes aerobic environment within slurry
• High pH helps protect animals from disease and infection
“I used Slurrycal on the cubicles during the past winter. The product was easy to handle and spread on the cubicles and there was very little dust; also there was a nice fragrant smell in the shed after it was spread. When I had to pump the slurry from the underground tank into the large overground tank I usually had to agitate for 3 hours and even still there would be large lumps left in the small tank after it was emptied; this year with Slurrycal I agitated for 30 minutes and was able to empty the tank completely and no lumps were left behind. This year after spreading the treated slurry on the fields; the grass was much greener and leafier than I’d ever seen after slurry application and I was able to cut silage two weeks earlier than the previous year even though the weather conditions were harsher than other years”.

“At first I was sceptical of the benefits of using Slurrycal but the agitation of the slurry tank in March told its own story. Normally agitation would take 2 – 3 hours from two external points; this year after using Slurrycal the tank was fully agitated after 30 minutes from one agitation point only! That saving in agitation cost and hassle alone makes slurrycal worthwhile for me. The slurry was spread after 1st cut silage and the 1st load out of the tank was the same as the last load- all liquid and consistent. There was no residue left on the grass as it spread evenly and was easily washed into the soil”
