An introduction to the Aberdeenshire Soil & Nutrient Network

Posted in

The Aberdeenshire Soil & Nutrient Network farm for 2018-19 is Kincraigie Farm at Lumphanan, which is farmed by the Marshall Family. The business is run by father and son partnership, Robert and Robert Jnr.

Kincragie is a mixed arable and grassland unit focusing on a herd of 550 suckler cows. All progeny from the suckler herd is kept and finished on the farm. All the farmyard manure (FYM) and slurry from the cattle is spread back on to the land to increase soil organic matter and reduce the use of inorganic bagged fertilisers.

In this podcast we chat with Robert Marshall from Kincraigie and Stacey Hamilton from SAC Consulting.
