The Nevada Story

The Nevada Story

The Nevada Story


Since our beginnings in 1988 we’ve continued to seek out and deliver the best equipment and products for New Zealand farmers, while challenging ourselves to always be better in the way we do things.


Previously known as Midwest Machinery, we began with the sales and service of general farm machinery, but the growth of demand from customers needing dairy farm effluent equipment was noticeable.


With environmental sustainability becoming more of a focus in society, and councils tightening regulations, there was a need for Midwest Machinery to become more focused, thus becoming Nevada - New Zealand’s Dairy Effluent Specialists.


Always seeking to deliver the best products and equipment for farmers, Nevada began to design and develop our own equipment based on the needs of kiwi dairy farmers. To ensure top quality and reliability, our equipment is designed and built in New Zealand with components fabricated by engineers in New Zealand and Europe.


Specialising in effluent management, it’s not just about providing quality effluent equipment. Farmers need the right equipment to get the right outcome. So along the way the Nevada team have skilled themselves on everything there is to know about effluent management, becoming accredited dairy farm effluent designers in 2014, keeping up with council rules and regulations, and working with farmers on a whole heap of different effluent management challenges across the varying farming landscapes of New Zealand.


Today Nevada is 'trusted for safety & reliability' not just because our products live up to their reputation, but because of our commitment to providing practical, professional advice and service. Nevada’s slurry tankers, pond stirrers and effluent management systems can be seen right throughout New Zealand, Australia, and have also made their way over to South America and the United States!
