    – Animal Feed Products

ISO  is the acronym used for International Organisation of Standardisation and is an Internationally recognised quality symbol that ensure companies are operating to the highest standards in their industry by ensuring their products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality.

ISO has over 18,600 standards that provide solutions and achieve benefits for almost every sector of business.

The standards we now work to are audited on are as follows;


These standards are recognised in over 160 countries worldwide.

As well as the above standards, McGrath’s Limestone Works Ltd. also have separate quality standards specific to the products we produce:

  • EN 206-1:2002 – Concrete
  • EN 13108-21:2006 (FPC) – Tarmacadam

In order to ensure the most efficient work methods and avoid duplication we have implemented an integrated management system.

  • I have been a customer of McGraths since I took over the family farm in 2001, as was my father before me. They have supplied me with aggregates, gravel and concrete for all my farm buildings. I have also used their Grolime to maintain correct pH levels, due to their unique location their lime is of a very high standard. In recent years I have been using their Farmcal and Slurrycal cubicle limes. I find that they maintain cows teats in excellent condition and help to produce high quality milk throughout the housing period. I also find they produce very little dust by comparison to other products on the market. McGraths have a thorough knowledge of all the products they supply and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other farmers.

  • At first I was sceptical of the benefits of using Slurrycal but the agitation of the slurry tank in March told its own story. Normally agitation would take 2 – 3 hours from two external points; this year after using Slurrycal the tank was fully agitated after 30 minutes from one agitation point only! That saving in agitation cost and hassle alone makes slurrycal worthwhile for me. The slurry was spread after 1st cut silage and the 1st load out of the tank was the same as the last load- all liquid and consistent. There was no residue left on the grass as it spread evenly and was easily washed into the soil
