Add milk pregnancy testing to your next herd test, it’s the convenient way to tell if your girls are expecting after 28 days – without them knowing.

But why stop there? Combining animal health checks to your herd test could uncover subclinical Staph aureus, Johnes disease, those who produce A2/A2 milk, as well as your herd’s production worth (PW) to help you make better calls.

Talk to your Agri Manager about adding pregnancy or animal health checks to your next herd test.

Just received approval from the council for the subdivision and looking for options.


Coming up:
2 residential sections on quiet street in Foxton Beach, 330sqm each.

Close to supermarket and whitebait creek. Boating club at walking distance if you want to go for a stroll.

Will have minimal covenants, relocatable, prefab homes will be fine.

(A third, larger, back section might become available in a later stage.)



Wanting to swap for:
5+ acres rural land or lifestyle on quiet, but not remote, location, with access to permanent forestry suitable for horse riding. Free-draining soil with about 5 acres mow-able by ride-on mower. Need to be able to grow some grass, but not looking for dairy quality. Some mature trees very much appreciated. Not planning to go off-grid, so will need power and good internet speed (wireless is fine).

Close to Foxton preferred, between Bulls and Kapiti considered.

Alternatively: if you are looking for a similar rural block contact me. Maybe we can buy something bigger together.

Note: Not interested in selling until I have found a new place myself.

Reduce calving spread with SGL

Using SGL semen should condense your calving spread, give more time for cows to recover and generate more days of milk. Not only can this boost your profits, but SGL is also a cost-effective alternative to using natural mating bulls in weeks 7 to 10.

Jute is a natural fibre with golden & silky shine, and hence nicknamed as The Golden Fibre.

Jute is one of the most versatile natural fibres that has been used in raw materials for packaging, textiles, non-textile, and agricultural sectors.

Jute is a vegetable plant whose fibres are dried in long strips, and it’s one of the cheapest natural materials available; together with cotton, it is one of the most frequently used.

The plants from which jute is obtained grow mainly in warm and humid regions, such as Bangladesh, China, and India.

Jute can be grown year-round and is harvested every six months. It can take decades to produce the same volume of wood fibre and it requires much larger tracts of land to cultivate.

The woody core of the jute plant, called hurd, has thousands of potential industrial and commercial uses. As an alternative to wood, hurd is capable of meeting most of the world’s demand for wood and wood products. Using hurd and jute fibres means that the level of deforestation to meet the current demand for paper and wood could be significantly decreased if they were used as an alternative.

Jute is 100% biodegradable (it degrades biologically in 1 to 2 years), low-energy recyclable, and can even be used as compost for the garden. It is clear in terms of reusability and recyclability that jute bags are one of the best options available nowadays.

Jute fibres are tougher and more resilient than paper made from wood pulp and can withstand prolonged exposure to water and weather. They can be reused many times and are thus very environmentally friendly.

The application of jute is a significant step in combating the use of different materials containing toxic wastes. Jute bags cut down the employment of plastic bags, which have now been effectively banned in many countries due to their harmful components. Jute seems to be one of the best alternatives to it.

We hope you enjoyed learning about Jute as much as we did, we would love to hear your comments! We have more interesting reads on our blog: www.curtainclean.co.nz...
