Project Description

“IT’S MADE MILKING FUN FOR OUR CREW” – William and Hazel Bourke, Manawatu

Another new and exciting MilktechNZ® installation for William and Hazel Bourke of Landseair Dairies Ltd. William who grew up in Taranaki and Hazel, who is originally from Devon in the UK, moved to Woodville in the Manawatu for more growth in their business in 2017. There they share milk with 600 cows on 260ha through their 40 unit herringbone. The farm is a low input, high output system and they winter off half the cows in winter and also have in-shed feeding.
William and Hazel said, “We decided to install MilktechNZ® CR-1 cup removers to get more efficiency from our operation. The service and installation went very smoothly and Craig from MilktechNZ® has always been available for support. A big factor of the purchase was to have a product we fully owned rather than getting a technician on farm to change basic settings. It’s made milking fun for our crew and having a happy team is very important to us.”
A big thank you to William and Hazel from the team at MilktechNZ®.
