Tractor in the mud

Supplying StockRock dry has been one of our major successes, thanks to our increased storage capacity. The big sheds hold 1000’s of tons (photos above) of StockRock which enables us to have a constant supply all year around. If you don’t have the rock under cover, you’re buggared. We often get trucks turning up at the quarry as soon as it stops raining, (like the next day) simply because the contractors (including ourselves) need to keep moving when we get so far behind with jobs.

This year in particular we have had several situations where farmers had sections of race that crapped out altogether. The race became impassable due to flooding, or the races had broken right through exposing the clay and then turning into a big bog.  - Photo opposite says it eloquently.

Our sheds are big enough that we can crush rock indoors, which it turns out has been hugely  advantageous. The contracting side of the business has had its challenges also. We ensure the rock loaded at the quarry is covered on the Truck and Trailer units so it arrives as dry as possible on-site. The team then work as quickly as possible to get a section of the race ready and lay and re-surface it between the rainfalls.

STOCKROCK NEW CAT DIGGER

Unbelievably difficult summer, autumn and winter weather for dairy farmers has had a hugely detrimental effect on farm races all over New Zealand. Thank goodness we have managed to provide clients with StockRock from our fantastic storage sheds. Without these oversize facilities we would have struggled to keep Rock going out the gate.

StockRock promotion winner 2017

CONGRATULATIONS to our StockRock 2017 promotion winner Karen Dysart who works for Zane Kite at Kiteroa Ayrshire farms in Ohaupo. Karen has won an $8000 farm race upgrade. Karen entered the StockRock competition without telling her boss Zane, so he was pretty surprised and thrilled to have won. He heard the promotion on the radio and thought it would be a cool thing to win but hadn't entered himself. Congratulations Zane and Karen we look forward to working with you over the coming months and upgrading your farm race.

Winner will be announced soon
