    rehabilitation scheme In the beginning he ran straight sheep stock The farm is where Rod grew up and once he took over the reins he introduced cropping Then it was 134 hectares which has since been added to four or five times Cropping was a way to increase the bottom line growing wheat barley and peas he said Cropping had its ups and downs and required a high capital input such as tractors and combine harvesters It was also vulnerable to hail storms and other climatic disasters Crops are so exposed to the elements Dale and Sus met while living in Southland Dale in the banking industry and Sus a teacher We got involved and put our savings into it purchasing the next door dryland block That s how we started into it The couple decided to move to the farm for a couple of years but never left They now have three children Jack 5 Sam 4 and Ali 2 Until a few years ago the farm was mainly border dyke irrigation with a dryland block Wanting to modernise and intensify the operation they have invested in spray irrigation installing a centre pivot and building a pond enabling them to fully utilise their water allocation and irrigate an extra 100 hectares of dryland Soon 250 hectares of the property will be under spray irrigation using the Ashburton Lyndhurst scheme While spray Irrigation has been used in the area for at least 30 years recent times have seen a big shift from borderdyke with efficiencies constantly improving Dale said he was looking forward to the management efficiencies spray irrigation would bring With borderdyke irrigation you are reliant on rainfall to get fertiliser in It s going to be great to get to big flat paddocks and use machinery more efficiently We ll be able to grow more small seeds like clover than what we re doing now They plan to reduce cattle numbers and increase store lambs The men agree they are on a good patch of land We ve got good enough soils to produce good quality crops When you rotate it with the stock it does work very well here Rod agrees saying it lent itself well to dairy grazing in the winter with its lighter soils The soil type s pretty versatile You can grow good grass and grow good crops The crucial thing is water of course You can t farm without irrigation on this soil type The investment in converting the farm was a big ask but the gains were great Dale said We ve gained 16 to 20 hectares with irrigation That s a lot of ground gained for our size operation We re quite excited about what s coming up in the next few years The men have seen big changes in the area most visibly noticeable are fewer trees There are not many ewe flocks left as most are grazing lambs or offering dairy support Those of us who didn t convert

    in barns where they will stack on around 70kg until heading to slaughter The Mees outdoor operation fits with the no cages crates or pens philosophy of New Zealand company Freedom Farms and their animals are processed proudly under that label Traceability and animal welfare are key Pig farming this way is a labour intensive operation though The Mees try to be as self contained as possible growing grain that is ground on farm for pig meal breeding their own weaners and recycling sawdust and straw from the fattening barns into compost that is spread around the farm Visitors must abide by strict hygiene rules by wearing overalls and gumboots provided vehicles that come onto the property must not pass a clear demarcation line between the farm yard and breeding fattening site Hamish and Vicki started in May 1994 with just 36 gilts young breeding sows and six boars Within five months they had built the herd up to 100 sows and were selling weaned piglets at four weeks old By 2000 breeding sow numbers had doubled and they decided to begin fattening the weaners themselves Today they have 360 sows producing around 140 piglets a week each sow will have an average 2 3 litters a year with 10 5 piglets weaned per litter Weaners come into the fattening sheds at four weeks weighing around 8kg and leave four months later weighing 80kg Their diet is carefully managed and blended on farm using the advice of a specialist pig nutritionist The meal contains 25 ingredients in six different blends according to the sows production stage weaners ages and stages of growth The animals get through around 43 tonnes a week The sows are artificially inseminated on farm using semen bought from PIC Pig Improvement Company The piglets are bred to be fast growing and efficient converters of feed providing lean meat Hamish says not many people know how to cook pork properly and most treat it as a white meat rather than a red meat The Pork Industry Board has started an education campaign designed to get pork onto New Zealand dinner tables more often with cuts outside the traditional pork roast like leg and loin steaks Pork meat has half the fat of other red meats and is high in iron but people tend to overcook it and not enjoy the result He says there is a big opportunity to grow the market with pork among the most popular meats eaten worldwide Hamish likes working with pigs and says they have more brains than the 10 pet sheep Vicki also minds He and four other staff are in the paddocks every day feeding stock cleaning out the barns weighing the incoming or outgoing weaners drafting baconers for sale milling feed and making sure the breeding stock are happy The farm is audited annually by SPCA inspectors and must pass Freedom Farms high animal welfare rules Their relationship with Molloy Agriculture is on two levels David and Sonia Molloy
