This Waterford farmer’s gas tutorial on slurry is going viral on Facebook

Hit the diff.

WHEN YOU’RE SICK and tired of people asking you how you go about spreading slurry on your farm, there’s only one solution:

Make a Snapchat story for them.

Young Waterford farmer Ross Lonergan found himself in that position this week, so he made a gas and comprehensive story and his sister shared it on Facebook:

It’s already been viewed nearly 40,000 times and it’s full of classic farm one-liners.

Ross explained why he did it in the first place at the start:

“A lot of people have been asking me how I do spread the slurry”

And the whole thing is chock full of highlights. Like when he’s lovingly talking about his machinery:

“It’s a fine yoke, you can spread a lot of slurry with that”

And gave us all an insight into the lingo:

“I like the motto: Don’t be daft, cover your shaft”

DON’T BE DAFT, COVER YOUR SHAFT.

And the problems he faces all the time:

“You’ll close her down then… you don’t want it spillin’ on the road… ah sure people would be givin’ out and I couldn’t be listenin’ to them”

When the noise has eventually stopped, the real party can begin:

“Leaving the field now and thank god the tunes are back on”

More hilarious than your average slurry lesson, in fairness.
