Equine Services

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.


Nutrient Recommendations

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.

Grassland Establishment & Maintenance

We provide detailed advice on suitable grassland reseeding and rejuvenation techniques. This will produce higher annual yields compared to old swards while improving grass digestibility and intake potential.

Forage & Diet Assessment

We carry out comprehensive diet analyses to identify major and minor nutrient imbalances.

Feed Programmes

Devising feed programmes for mares, stallions, foals and young horses.

Fertilizer Requirements

Correct use of lime and fertilizer is essential in order to maintain sustainable growth and nutrient levels. We provide tailor made fertilizer programmes that ensures the efficient use of fertilizer for optimum growth.
