Moore Concrete
hoping to make it
a ‘double first’
M
OORE Concrete will
have a major presence
at this year’s Balmoral
Show. Hoping to build
on the achievement of
securing the Best Overall Stand
accolade at the 2018 event, the
precast manufacturer will be
giving pride-of-place to its new 15’
x 7” gang slats.
The development of the new slat
format has been made possible
courtesy of a major investment
in moulds and equipment at the
Broughshane-based company.
“This is all very much customerdriven and demonstrates our
ongoing commitment to the
industry,” confirmed Andrew
Moore.
“Longer
slats
will
better
accommodate the demand for
larger modern livestock housing,
particularly on dairy and beef
farms throughout the UK and
Ireland.
“In practical terms they will act
to reduce the number of gangs
used on a specific project. In turn,
this will cut the number of peers
required to suspend the floor
above the slurry tank.”
He added: “The new slats will be
available in both Surefoot and a
conventional brushed finish.”
In a recent report, Tess Klifman
of Cow Signals highlights a direct
link between positive lactation
and the added space in livestock
housing.
“Our recent investment allows
us to produce deeper 10inch
slats at longer lengths more
economically.
This
provides
customers with a more costeffective solution when designing
larger housing buildings, creating
vital additional space between
feeding channels and bedding,
making it a more comfortable
living environment for livestock.
Balmoral Show 2019 will also
see Moore Concrete unveil the
company’s new larger diagonal
slat, which accompany the
company’s 1.5m (5ft) slurry
channel. Again, the diagonal slats
will be available in both Surefoot
and conventional brushed finishes.
Moore Concrete has been to
the fore, over many years, in
delivering innovative quality
precast solutions that meet the
exact needs of livestock and
arable producers throughout the
UK and Ireland.
2017 saw the company unveil its
Ox Strain gate posts for the first
time at Balmoral Show. This time
around the extended range of
posts will be on display.
Andrew Moore again: “Due to
the growing demand from both
farmers and fencing contractors,

Operations Director, and Jenny McNeill, RUAS Trade Stand Manager.
the posts are now available in 7’,
8’6” and 10’ lengths.”
He continued: “Regardless of
ground conditions, Ox Strain
Posts provide a durable, strong,
maintenance free, fencing solution
with a 50-year design life, they are
also eligible for Environmental
Farming Scheme (EFS) Funding.
“The Ox Strain post’s design
creates eight flat sides, preventing
the post from twisting when
being driven in, also making them
easier to handle and transport.
This feature also enables timber
batons to be easily bolted to the
posts, allowing barbed wire to be
stapled directly to the post.
“High and low notches for
concrete struts are cast onto
four sides as standard, for extra
stability.”
Talk to us about our extensive
range of prestressed wall panels
for use in silos or farm buildings
Alternatively consider our bunker
walls, probably the most versatile
storage system that can be
delivered on any farm.
And here’s a quick follow-on for
dairy farmers: why stress your
cows out by running them though
a foot bath after milking when
they can stand in a recommended
foot bath solution every time they
drink?
n Moore Concrete will be located
on Stand B27.
