Bruce Gordon & Dianne Baker

BRUCE GORDON AND DIANNE BAKER SHAREMILK ON RAY WILLY’S FARM IN ELTHAM,TARANAKI PROVINCE. HAVING RAISED ALL THEIR REPLACEMENT CALVES ON A QUEEN OF CALVES PROGRAMME FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS, THEY ARE SO PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS THEY HAVE PURCHASED A BELL-BOOTH AUTOMATED CALF FEEDING SYSTEM.

"Your replacements are the future herd. They need to be raised as well as possible and that’s why we’re investing a significant amount of money in this system,” Bruce says. “It will deliver the perfect amount, at the perfect temperature, anytime, day and night. We’re keen, but we cannot claim to match that sort of standard. A man’s got to get some sleep, sometime,” Bruce says with a grin. “Our heifers enter the herd as fully mature cows. It enables them to seamlessly integrate into the mixed-age mob.

“Our heifers are coming into the herd fully mature. You don’t know how much easier that makes the job.”
