    Tony’s View.

    Fisken Contracting, based in Gore, can tackle fairly much any job there is. From lane maintenance to cartage, baling to logging. Tony Fisken backs umbilical slurry systems because of their efficiency and the fact that they’ll work at high volumes and in conditions where slurry tankers simply can’t. “There’s little or no compaction of laneways or paddocks and it’s a very effective way of moving large amounts of nutrient.” Tony says the system is especially good on softer soils, (and on the shoulder seasons) where tankers could get stuck, as there are only the hoses to be placed down and reeled in. His business works with umbilical on distances up to, and even exceeding 2kms, which, Tony says, accommodates most properties. Some farmers find it so effective they choose not to use their own systems at all. “They just give us a call.”

    Profiline Slurry Tanker

    Colin's view

    Colin Molloy runs a 420-sow piggery, along with 130 hectares of cropping and livestock, in Sheffield, Canterbury with two large effluent ponds.
    Although it was the advanced hydraulics that first drew Colin to his Veenhuis Profiline 16600 litre Slurry Tanker, he is also acutely aware of the need to successfully manage environmental issues and soil fertility. The tanker enables him to recycle the nutrient-dense manure and reduce odour in one go.
    His tanker injects the effluent back into the soil providing a great start for barley, wheat, and pasture and removing the nuisance normally associated with conventional “broadcast” systems.
