Suffolk invention helps muck spreading go further
By Ivor Traktor, Farming Correspondent (intern)
A Suffolk inventor is showcasing his clever innovation to help farmers reduce with the cost of muck spreading.
Giles Greenstock, 48, from Mildenhall, has added a toilet to the top of a silage tank, allowing a farm hand to add to the contents as it goes along.
The genius contraption is proven to allow one single silo tank to spread manure across 24% extra field area.
“I came up with the idea while sitting on the lavatory one evening,” Mr Greenstock said. “It didn’t take long to put the prototype together, and early results are encouraging.
“Now I am looking for investors to bring this to the mass agriculture market. It’s a shit job, but someone’s got to do it.”
