Project Description

“WE LOVE THE MILKTECHNZ® CR-1 SYSTEM – VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT AND USER FRIENDLY.”

It has been a very busy time for our installers over winter. One of those installations was for Barrie and Carolyn Stewart who have chosen MilktechNZ® CR-1 cup removers to replace their ageing existing cup removers. The farm is located in Reporoa (Sam Cane country) which is between Rotorua and Taupo in the Central Plateau. Here they milk 1100 Friesian cross cows on 340 effective hectares through a 66 unit herringbone. The day to day operation is run by equity partners Mark and Jo Stewart.
Mark said, “our current system was no longer sustainable with high costs and difficulty getting parts. When running a large system we need to have reliability and an enjoyable working environment for our staff. We love the MilktechNZ® CR-1 system – very well thought out and user friendly. Upgrades from our old system, like lift and start and rapid venting of the ram, make milking a breeze. The multi-colour display shows cluster kick off which allows for better individual animal observation. Also the ease to make adjustments to any of the milking parameters from my phone is great. We are thrilled with the investment.”
From the team at MilktechNZ®, a big thanks to the Stewart family.
