Debbie and Stu Bland ; Dairy Farm, Reefton, New Zealand


Debbie and Stu Bland Dairy farm 14km from Reefton. The farm purchased their first RDS Weighlog 100 loader scale in 2011 to accurately measure their supplementary feed.  Approximately 200 ton of maize silage is grown on the farm annually.

 

“˜”™After originally fitting the RDS Weighlog 100 scales we were surprised to find how much we were over feeding our cows” says Stu. “Previously we had manually weighed a tractor bucket of maize with a 20L bucket and bobby calf scales, we found out that our calculations were well out”

“With the recording we did after the Weighlog 100 was fitted we were pleased to find that the scales had paid for themselves by the time we had fed the first 100 tonne of maize silage.”
