VIDEO: Killen Bros: Over 12,000-acres of grass & 35m gallons of slurry

Killen Bros provides a full agricultural contracting service to farmers across Northern Ireland, with slurry and silage featuring heavily.

They cut over 12,000-acres of grass each year, combine over 1,000-acre of crops, cut 2000 acres of maize and wholecrop, 1000-acres of tillage and spread in the region of 35 million gallons of slurry.

They currently run two Krone Big X harvesters, a Krone Big M, 2 sets of triple mowers, two JCB 435S shovels, two combines and sixteen tractors. The brothers predominately cover the area surrounding Derry/Londonderry; however, they do have customers as far as 45 miles away.

That’s Farming interviewed Joanne, Karen, Mandy, and Lorraine Killen, who are the wives of four of the Killen Brothers, agricultural contractors and farmers by nature, last year. Read full interview.
