DairyRotor T8500 - Abe de Wolde, New Zealand Farmer Story

December 05, 2023
Abe de Wolde runs an impressive dairy operation, milking 4,500 cows across five dairy farms in Central Southland. With a production output of 2.5 million kgMS, Abe is dedicated to growing healthy youngstock, optimising cow efficiency and increasing production per feed input.

Last year, Abe installed his fourth milking system with GEA - a 54-bail DairyRotor T8500 rotary. This system not only provides a comfortable platform, but also features automation integration options, which aligns with their farm goals.

Looking ahead, Abe says their commitment to improving efficiencies and increasing per cow production will also have a positive environmental impact. And GEA is set to play a pivotal role in this journey.
