About Us

The Slattery Family has been involved in Ag Contracting since the mid 1950’s, starting with Roger’s father and uncle, Paul and Ray, they made Hay and cultivated land, sometimes breaking in land many miles away from home. Roger’s mother ran the farm, took the phone calls from Clients, organised the hay gangs, and looked after the 5 Slattery Children. Roger took over the business in the early 1980’s.

The business has grown from harvesting conventional hay bales, ploughing and Undersowing to the wide range of services that Slattery Contracting Ltd can offer their clients now and into the future.
