All Welcome – on the farm event. May 9th 2018- May 15th 2018
The work done in March provides the foundations for this year’s harvest. Spring Cereals grow from seed to maturity in approximately 120 days and the old saying “well sown is half grown” is still as important as ever.
That product, fed in combination with Quinn’s 17% Calf Follow-On ration, has resulted in calves weaning two weeks earlier, at 10 weeks.
The time is fast approaching to sow spring crops for Harvest 2018. As always Quinns are stocking a wide range of cereal and bean varieties from the Department of agriculture recommended lists. It is important not only to choose the right crop but also the right variety for your farm.
Following the recent completion of an additional state of the art feed pelleting plant Quinns can now offer a comprehensive range of quality nuts alongside coarse rations. The new feed plant is accredited under the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) and all grain purchased is from Irish Grain Assurance Scheme (IGAS) approved growers.
