Help for dairy farmers switching to sheep, goat

23rd October 2020 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Waikato Milking Systems is helping farmers across New Zealand make the switch to the dairy sheep and goat industries with its milking technology. 

The company recently commissioned three small ruminant milking parlours in the central North Island.

Green Park Sheep near Te Awamutu, Schuler Brothers at Te Aroha and Browne Pastoral near Cambridge were among the first independent commercial suppliers to Maui Sheep Milk, according to Waikato Milking Systems. 

Maui planned a series of Sheep Dairy Information Sessions at Karapiro near Cambridge in the Waikato on 22-23 October.

It would give anyone interested in the technology the opportunity to visit Browne Pastoral and see its new internal 70-bail sheep rotary plant in action. 

Waikato Milking Systems said it was also put the finishing touches on two new external goat rotary plants this winter, one for Oete Farm near Pukekohe and another for NZ Dairy Goat at Waharoa.
