Coolmore Ireland 2020 Brochure

The Harvest Oats form part of the balanced diet for our horses, and to ensure the highest quality possible we grow our own. The oat crop is harvested at the peak of its ripeness, usually in late July. Some of the machinery we use to harvest is built to our own specifications as is the purpose-built store the crop is gathered into. Winter barley straw provides the best bedding being more absorbent and less palatable than other varieties. To this end a significant crop of winter barley is planted and harvested every year. It is meticulously checked for quality at every stage from planting to storage. It’s that detail thing, and the fact that at Coolmore, there is no such thing as a minor one.

Each combine holds up to 7 tonnes and can be emptied into the 30-tonne chaser bin without any need to stop
