Case Studies

Check out why these farmers find Allflex monitoring a #gamechanger

David & Wendy Harker

Waikato

Farm Size: 252ha
Herd Size: 405 Dairy Cows

For Wendy and David, dairy farming is as much of a passion as it is a business. The duo take it seriously and operate a closed system farm, with all supplements grown on site. Similarly, with the help of their three full time staff, they raise all their young stock on site.

Marcel & Toni Boschma

Wairarapa

Farm Size: 528ha
Herd Size: 1,000 Dairy Cows

The Boschmas are one of four owners in an equity partnership, formed on their 528ha Wairarapa property four years ago. They milk 1000 cows and operate a fully automated 60-bale rotary milking shed.

Thomas & Andrea Scheres

Waikato

Farm Size: 100ha
Herd Size: 420 Dairy Cows

Thomas and Andrea are equity partners on one of the Scheres family’s Putaruru farms. The third-generation to take on this South Waikato farming operation, the family has been early adopters of the Allflex system and, after eight years down the track, they’re still big fans.

Rudolph Stoop

Rakaia Island

Farm Size: Entire Island
Herd Size: 8,000 Dairy Cows

Rudolph is a senior farm manager for a large-scale operation, milking 8800 cows. Rakaia Island Farm has a strong focus on environmental sustainability, as well as good cow health and welfare. Being such a large scale operation, monitoring and identifying animal health issues has been challenging in the past.

Owen & Cathy Copinga

Isla Bank

Farm Size: 480ha
Herd Size: 650 Dairy Cows

Cathy and Owen run split-calving, on their Southland dairy farm. Their 650 Holstein Fresians allow them to supply Fonterra year round. However, it also means they are calving for a total of 20 weeks a year and traditionally spent a lot on heat detection aids – such as tail paint or scratch off patches.
