Preparation 500








We started this week by putting our Preparation 500 horns in the ground.  This is exciting to do on our farm - we put in about 1200 horns - filled with manure and covered with soil for the winter.  The last picture is how the preparation comes out at the end - a vigourous beautiful live morsel that will be carefully mixed with water and sprayed onto paddocks to improve soil health with micro-organisims and fine root growth.  Nic used a water driven sausage maker to fill the horns while the team placed them and covered them very carefully.  It will be exciting to unveil the 500 in the Spring!

beautifully colloidal 500 you got there in the last photo! Cam thinks our soil has changed heaps in the 5 or so years we have been using 500. That's a massive cow horn in the top photo! Here's to healthy soil.
