PADDOCK & PASTURE CARE

Raw materials and feed costs are rising all the time. As a horse owner you can save money by maximising grass production on your grazing land. This means ensuring your paddocks are in the best of health providing essential nutrients. Weeds, moss and poor soil conditions can reduce grass growth so by correcting any problems you can increase productivity and utilise your most cost effective feed-stuff.

Whether your horse lives out 24/7 or is turned out for a few hours a day, pasture management is of the utmost importance to your horse’s health. Horses will spend up to 16 hours a day eating so investing time, money and resources into your pasture will be beneficial in the long-term.

SDR Conservation provides professional, reliable services to manage and maintain your grassland.
