StockRock cements in place, no loose stones that can create lameness

StockRock Shane Smith with Farmer Mark Muller on farm Taranaki2

Now that we are later in the spring and about to head into summer it is really surprising that whenever we get rain for more than 2 days my phone starts to ring. Farmer will say that “my races looked great and then as soon as it rained it was ankle deep in muck” Next minute they have anywhere from 3 to 10 lame cows within a couple of days.

Winter milker Spring time challenges

Before After StockRock small

Winter months see many new challenges with more and more dairy farmers chasing a higher winter payout but finding the downside being the surface deterioration of the farm races. We find that by the time the weather comes right through some parts of September these winter milk farms really suffer with lameness issues especially if they have previously used brown rock (more-so).

Get the “Right Stuff"

Posted 6 August 2018

Get the right Stuff StockRock storage

The weather plays a big part in what we do, we find that the huge demand over winter means storage of Stockrock is a must. Last year we undertook building more storage so we can now hold up to 17,000 tonnes undercover.
We are becoming well known for the consistency of StockRock and more and more farmers and contractors are beginning to realise that to get the “right stuff ” it comes
from our Ngakuru Quarry.
Our own farm race contracting side of the StockRock business has been the busiest ever over the last 2 years and our team are well known for their experience in not only doing a great job but having the know-how to help major lameness issues and help with entry/exit race advice. Many people don’t realise that we off er the whole package from consultation, quoting, supply and laying; supply only from quarry and supply and delivery of their StockRock. We also work and consult with farmers' contractors to make sure that they get the best advice. So give me a call, we’re here to help make farmers’ lives better.

See you at National Fieldays, Site E80-82, June 13-16, 2018
