Get an AquaCHILL unit retrofitted to ensure compliance

Milk cooling regulation and compliance isn’t a new thing, but anybody out there in the industry will know that there is really starting to be a crackdown on non-compliance. Dairy Plants are given just 21 days to meet compliance criteria, with different businesses having different standards in temperature after two hours.

Milk needs to meet that magical temperature within two hours of entering the vat and with a retrofitted AquaCHILL system, GEA guarantees that milk will enter the vat at below 6’c, getting you most of the way there to meeting regulation.

We know 21 days to compliance is hard, but we imagine the industry is only going to get tougher as regulation becomes more and more enforced, that’s why we think it’s a good idea you get onto it now and factor it into your budget before you have that short timeframe to meet compliance.

With a hot summer and warm March, an AquaCHILL system can future proof your business as temperatures continue to rise. An AquaCHILL unit can also be a good system to consider if you’re thinking of switching suppliers, as it’s really easy to retrofit with minimal labour and you’ll be meeting the milk cooling standards set by the supplier.

Talk to the team at Nind Dairy Services today about how an AquaCHILL unit can ensure you meet compliance and what solutions are right for your setup. Call 0800 50 22 50.

Do you need a Nind Dairy Services Plumbing Warrant of Fitness?

Are you aware that Nind Dairy Services offer a huge range of plumbing services?

Taking a proactive stance on maintenance can save you time and money. That is why we highly recommend you get someone from the Nind Dairy Services team to do a ‘Warrant of Fitness’ check on your farm, especially if you’re looking to change onsite staff soon. This ensures everything is fully functional, and not causing any unwanted damage that you may not be aware of. The Nind Dairy Services team can make recommendations and advice to ensure your farm business stays operational.

Nobody likes a breakdown, whether it’s in the water supply or sewerage system, as it can take time away from working on the farm, for you and your staff. That’s why it’s best to get someone in the industry to check, clean, and repair your plumbing equipment so that it’s fully functional and you know whether it’s in a good condition or coming up for replacement. That way, you can get ahead of your gear, and know when to replace things before a breakdown that stops work, and costs you.

Now is a good time of year to get your farm and workers houses checked before a change of tenants.

Nobody likes to have new tenants move in, to then get a call that there’s leaking taps, or no running water, or clogged spouting and drains that could be causing unwanted damage to your property. Tasks that are often overlooked (and could really do with an expert eye) are things like checking your water pumps, septic tanks, and the wastewater systems. We recommend getting one of the Nind Dairy Services team to do a full check of your farm equipment and worker’s houses each year, this ensures your gear is clean and reliable. If anything does need repairing or you want to upgrade the kitchen, the Nind Dairy Services team are able to make those repairs for you, to your timeframe and budget, and often before those new tenants move in; saving your bottom line.

Summer is approaching - check your water supply

Summer is fast approaching. Now is the time to check on your water, around the farm and in your tanks – to see if your pumps are working efficiently, or if you need to upgrade to better cope with the upcoming dry season. No farmer wants to get caught out over the dry season with a no water on their property for their stock, shed or household. Breakdowns can also be incredibly costly, not just with pump replacement costs, but with stoppages in work, and even potential risks of water contamination.
If you have any concerns, now is the time to talk to the Nind Dairy Services team about possible solutions. 

The Advantages of a Davey Microlene Farm System

Why is it important to supply your stock with healthy water?

Supplying your stock with healthy water is something that is often overlooked. If you supply your stock with healthy water, you’ll see healthier cattle and a higher production outcome, making your property more cost-effective. The average milking cow drinks at least 50 litres, if not 90 litres, of water a day. At that volume, supplying your milking cows with clean, hygienic, and balanced drinking water is something to seriously consider.

Bacteria and Pathogens

Poor water on the farm may contain pathogens that can affect your animals' health such as E.Coli, Campylobacter and Leptospirosis. These bacteria easily grow in streams, ponds and shallow groundwater.

Clean, pathogen-free farm water will reduce the risks of infection, affecting the health and productivity of your livestock. Poor quality water could also affect the cleaning ability of your shed wash-down water.

Mineral Imbalance

Poor drinking water could also have an imbalance of minerals and trace elements such as copper, magnesium and zinc. Poor quality water can result in these essential minerals falling out of suspension and settling the bottom of drinking troughs before the animals have a chance to drink these minerals that are key to their health. Also, minerals and contaminants can build up in your water reticulation pipes, pumps and valves and increase infrastructure failure and costly part replacement through equipment degradation.

Quality, balanced water will provide cattle with the ability to imbibe these key trace minerals and elements, ensuring your herd can get the most from their drinking water and be as healthy as possible. Water free from iron will reduce your maintenance costs as equipment degradation and system failures will be minimised.

Improved Water Intake

Water high in iron and other minerals (out of balance) or with poor PH levels can taste bitter and unpalatable. Reduced water intake can result in dehydrated, unhealthy animals with a lower milk output.

Supplying your dairy cows with balanced, clean, palatable and healthy drinking water will result in a higher intake, resulting in more output of milk from your herd. Creating a higher yield for your dairy farm and directly improving your business.

What’s the Solution?

Get your water tested for minerals, trace elements, microorganisms, PH and water quality. You can book this through Nind Dairy Services – just give us a call.

Would you like a free trial of a water pump that uses no power or fuel?

Nind Dairy Services is offering one lucky farmer a free trial of a water pump that runs solely from water flow and uses no power or fuel. Davey Water Products have provided Nind Dairy Services with a ‘Papa Pump’. These pumps are huge overseas, but relatively unheard of in New Zealand.

The principle itself has been around forever but the new patented design is much more durable and efficient than the traditional cast iron ram pumps. The Papa Pump uses just the flow of water available from a creek, dam, or spring, etc. The pump will operate without manual intervention when at least 50 litres of water per minute is supplied to the pump. No power or fuel is required, making it ideal for remote locations.

Nind Dairy Services is looking for a farmer who has a trial site that is ideal for set up (like a river, stream, spring or pond). The supply pipeline needs to be installed above the pump and the greater the supply head, the more efficient the pump. While 70% of the water is depressurised and returned to the water source, 30% of the water is pressurised and can be delivered to high elevations, or long distances. Maybe you need more water and might consider purchasing something like this if it proves to be incredibly effective.

If this sounds like you – give Nind Dairy Services a call and you could be in for a free trial of a Papa Pump!
