TARANAKI/MANAWATU/WAIRARAPA

Farming is in Richard’s and Amanda’s veins. They are passionate about producing healthy animals and getting the best outcomes for their clients.

Richard Hammond

(Taranaki & Wairarapa)

I was born in Hunterville and grew up on a sheep and Beef farm in the Rangitikei. I currently live in Sanson on a lifestyle farm with my partner Marlene, and in my down time I enjoy
rugby, fishing and spending time with family and friends.

I have been in the farming industry for over 35 years. Even though I have been with NZ Grazing since 2008 every day is a new day for learning and sharing of knowledge within the grazing industry.

I take great pride in my work and treat all the stock in my care as my own. I am very passionate about growing heifers to their full potential before they enter the next stage of their life. Grazing heifers with NZ Grazing, and under my management, is a great long-term investment for your farm, leaving you to focus on milking cows.

 Using my many years of experience in the grazing industry I oversee and take care of all your grazing needs including animal health, mating management, and transport.
I have a trusting relationship and work with a large number of dairy farmers and grower farmers in the Taranaki, Rangitikei, Manawatu, and Wairarapa. I would enjoy sitting down with you to see how I can be of service to you and your Dairy heifer grazing requirements

 

Amanda Seddon

(Manawatu & Hawkes Bay)

Raised on a sheep and beef station under the Ruahine Rangers near Mangaweka, then farmed in the northern Manawatu, I have a good understanding of farming conditions in the Central North Island. Also familiar is the Hawkes Bay where I attended secondary school. At the age of 21 I established a Limousin Stud, visited, and worked showing cattle for studs in Canada, and having a good eye for quality stock I was invited to become a Royal Agricultural Show Society of NZ Interbreed Beef Judge. I’m now living on a lifestyle property in Feilding where I trade in lambs and breed thoroughbred racehorses. Holidays are spent boating on a lake, catching trout.

As a Service Manager for New Zealand Grazing Company, I am charged with producing quality heifers for our Owners while achieving financial results for our Graziers. I enjoy marrying a particular line of cattle with the appropriate property and then managing a successful outcome.

This is achievable by listening to the needs of my customers. Offering help in understanding the requirements of the MDM contract. Recognizing potential issues and mentoring best possible solutions through years of animal management experience and the collective knowledge of our team.

We would love the chance to walk you through your options. Get in touch to find out how stock management can benefit you and your farm.

Richard & Amanda

Just because raising heifers is a serious business, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a little fun.
