Rogan’s view

Rogan Borrie calves 2,800 cows, and run 3,200 sheep and 1,300 dairy-beef cattle over 6,900 acres. Situated near Oamaru his operation has everything from flat to hill country, and soils that range from stony to heavy.

One of his claims to fame is winning the local Lions Club’s prize for the longest and heaviest fodder beet at a whopping 28.5 kgs. Rogan says the crop, which he has been growing for around nine years, is good for putting weight on cattle.

Rogan has two Aguirre fertiliser spreaders that he keeps fairly busy. He says the decision to buy them was mainly based on price and he feels he is getting good value for money. (Also he’d previously bought other gear from FarmChief.)

One of the spreaders is used behind the cows and the other on the heifer run-off. The first he bought has been on the property for two and a half years, the other for six months.

Rogan says he’s found them reliable and robust. “I like good gear, not stuff that’ll break down all the time.”
