With over 10 years of experience growing 2500 calves a year, Ruth brings a wealth of knowledge to the team and the Northland area.
I live just outside Whangarei with my husband on a 10-acre block. Before moving to Northland, I spent 10 years managing a rearing unit of 2,500 calves a year in the Waikato.
I deal with all sizes of farms from those over 600 cows through to 150 milked by a sole farmer. I am passionate about growing the best heifers, so they can benefit the production and profit of the platform in the Northland region.
I work alongside Lisa, who manages the weighing side of things. She has extensive knowledge of farming and milking and understands the importance of heifers being on target.
For my grower clients, I work with all types and sizes as well, from ex-dairy farms through to big rolling hill country. In Northland, our summers are dry and hot which can make growing heifers more challenging. Our experienced team are able to advise you on all manners of growing, from improving mating cycles through to a heifer eating training programme.
