Agronomy refers to the science of soil fertility and crop growth and how they are used to maximize their nutritional value for the benefit of livestock. At Tim Bourke & Associates, we provide a specialized service to farmers and blood stock industries based on sound agronomic and nutritional advice. We work with some of the top world renowned stud farms in Ireland and abroad for the past 16 years assisting in the production of horses that go to the very top in the world in their grade.
We perform detailed scientific analysis of soil, grass, animal tissue and water. By monitoring their nutrient levels we can compile recommendations specific to the farm or stud's unique environment.
