“WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MILKTECHNZ® TO ANYONE” – Dylan Riddell of Raroa Lands Trust, Bay of Plenty

MilktechNZ® are thrilled to be chosen as the preferred suppliers for cup removers to Raroa Lands Trust based in Waimana in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. Dylan Riddell and Kalena Herewini have run the operation for the last four years. This season they are starting as 50/50 sharemilkers, milking 500 cows in a system 3 setup through their 40 unit herringbone.
Dylan said, “having the MilktechNZ® CR-1 cup removers has made it a much more enjoyable experience for our staff and this is very important. We knew over milking was an issue and having the CR-1 cup removers has addressed this. We have already seen an improvement in our animal health and a drop in our SCC. I believe this is mostly due to the cups been removed at the right time.
“We love the ease of changing the milking take off point from our phone and milking our cows how we want.
“The MilktechNZ® system is very user friendly and we love that it is kiwi owned and made. After seeing what else is in the market we would highly recommend MilktechNZ® to anyone.”
Away from the farm Dylan says although we have a boat, it spends too much time in the shed, but when we have time we love heading down the east coast.
From the team at MilktechNZ®, a big thank you to Raroa Lands Trust and Dylan and Lalena, and also your little helper Raili, we love the photo!
