Graeme’s view

Graeme Burnett has a 300ha milking platform and 250ha run-off on flat to rolling country at Dacre on the Southland Plains. It’s fully self-contained, doing all its own cropping.
He’s been impressed by FarmChief’s sales follow-up, in particular Ben who he says is a salesman who can also actually also do the job.
“We bought a roller that needed a tweak so the paddles worked better on the flat. They came out, looked at it and organised new parts. It was extremely good.”
Graeme says it’s a welcome change from a lot of the gear they have bought elsewhere, which has left them with a bit of welding to do. “FarmChief do far more than other outfits.”

Campbell’s view

Campbell McArthur farms 263 hectares of flat land at Pendarves, Canterbury, in crops including; wheat, barley, oats, processed peas, seed peas, red beets, ryegrass, broad beans, and linseed. Between crops, he grazes lambs. Campbell’s goal was to find a way to effectively integrate crop residue into the ground, ready for the next season’s crops. There were a couple of important considerations behind his thinking: Increasing concerns around burning-off (including bans after the 2017 Canterbury Port Hills fires), and the stringent demands of his local irrigation scheme’s environmental plan, which doesn’t favour ploughing. The Express Plus 6000 Speed Disc had already been on Campbell’s radar and was a pragmatic choice. He says he particularly appreciates the implement’s robustness and precision engineering. “It’s very well made”. He can’t fault its performance. “It does a really beautiful job.”

David & Sally’s view

David and Sally Mavor, along with business partners John and Fionna McCarthy, farm a property at Lismore, near Ashburton in Mid Canterbury.

The 475 hectare block includes a 250 hectares dairy block, running 900 cows, with the remainder used for cropping and support. The property is mixture of Templeton silt loam, and some lighter soils.

David’s Express 3000 Speed Discs, trailed with ripper, are used for working-in crop after winter grazing. He says the advantage of the implement is that it deep rips the soil while working the top soil at the same time. “Two or three passes and it’s ready for drilling into spring cereals.”

“Turn-around is everything because time is important. This is helping us achieve that. The one cultivator, effectively does two jobs.

“We’ve cultivated 100 hectares with it, in one season, and it’s performed as we expected.”

David says he’s purchased other implements from FarmChief in the past. “So, we told them what the problem was and they came up with a solution.”

“Their service is really good, when they delivered they also made sure everything was set up, and they had good follow-up and spare parts service.

“We’re really happy with it.”
