Brian and Ross Williams in South Taranaki

Brian and Ross Williams are a father and son team situated in South Taranaki where they operate on 130 hectares with 400 cows on flat to rolling land. When consent was up, they looked for a local and trustworthy company that could help them run their dairy farm with efficiency.

The farm previously relied on a system that was put in place 30 years ago with the cow shed being located 500 meters away [from the effluent pond]. Occasionally Brian and Ross would call in a local contractor who would suck the ponds out for them in order to spread the effluent onto the paddocks. When their compliance was up, they knew it would be a larger expense to connect power down to the ponds for a travelling irrigator system that met compliance.

Instead of opting for a higher expense and more complex installation, Brian and Ross called Nevada to find the right system for the job. They opted to utilise their 112-horsepower tractor to pull a Nevada 12,800L Tandem Slurry Tanker that could manage two to three loads a day every fortnight.

Utilising a Nevada slurry tanker system helped them cut costs and share the responsibility of spreading effluent evenly to all paddocks. Brian noted that, “We chose Nevada cause they are local and I like supporting local businesses. I’ve certainly read enough about the equipment and seen enough of their tankers throughout the country to know that they’re good.”

They found a slurry tanker was easy to operate and could manage spreading effluent across 90% of the paddocks with a good natural fertiliser that comes directly from the cows on their farm. Instead of applying effluent in the same place every time, a Nevada tanker system helps them reach poor paddocks and spread effluent evenly.

With no challenges setting up the system, they have owned a Nevada 12,800L Tandem Slurry Tanker and a Nevada TurboStir 6000 PTO Pond Stirrer for nine months. They enjoy the assurance of Nevada’s team only being a phone call away to help with any issues they may have. Both Brian and Ross would recommend Nevada to other farmers who are looking to put in a reliable and efficient effluent system that makes it easy to meet compliance. In Brian’s words,”This 12,800 litre Nevada slurry tanker does the job.”
