Brothers, Tom and Padraig Hennessy, established Terra Liquid Minerals after noticing a lack of progression in the minerals industry.
Farmers have been aware of the advantages of feeding minerals to their animals for generations. But little has changed in terms of the forms of minerals being used.
Having worked with water piping systems for over 10 years Tom had extensive knowledge of working water systems and the importance of clean water in an animal’s diet. He had seen the advantage of using a farms water piping system as a means of introducing minerals into an animal’s diet.
Having previously worked with Terra Services, Padraig’s experience with Account Management and E Commerce solutions provided the perfect partnership for their new venture, and so, Terra Liquid Minerals began.
The brothers have developed an intelligent mineral dosing system which automatically doses your water with an accurate level of minerals based on the animal’s water usage.
The aim of the Terra Connect controller is to provide a automatic approach to mineral feeding, eliminating manual labour and human error. Terra Liquid Minerals offer a fully managed system with tailor made mineral solutions to meet your farm’s specific needs.

In 2017, having significant success with their mineral solutions, Terra Liquid Minerals introduced the new Vital Range to the market. This range of consumable minerals is available from a number of Distributors across Ireland. The introduction of the Vital Range means that the high quality mineral products offered to existing Terra Liquid Minerals customers are now available to the public for use on any farm, anywhere. The dilutable solutions can be mixed with water in your existing water troughs. To view our Vital Range and see a list of our distributors click here.

Having completed a Bachelor of Business and Marketing Degree in Waterford Institute of Technology in 2002, Padraig worked in a leading product pricing firm in Toronto, Canada. After leaving this role and travelling extensively through the world Padraig worked in varying roles from agriculture to sales through Australia and New Zealand.
Padraig joined Terra Services in 2007, where he and Tom grew Terra Services nationally. In 2012, the brothers developed the business internationally under Terra Water Systems. From this venture a further gap in the market was established in the formulation and delivery of minerals and Terra Liquid Minerals was born.
Growing up on a farm in Co. Kildare gave Tom a passion for farming and all things agricultural. An exciting opportunity was afforded to Tom when he was offered a place in Harper Adams Agricultural College where he completed a BSc. (Hons) Agricultural degree in Food Marketing and Business Studies.
In 2007 Tom focused Terra Services on the agricultural sector where he grew the enterprise nationally and internationally and is still seen as a market leader in the agricultural sector. In 2012, Tom along with Padraig Hennessy established a new company to cater for international expansion and quickly established the need for an innovative and professional mineral company and so Terra Liquid Minerals was born.
