JAY•LOR -- FEED MIXER
Built in Canada, Jaylor is a highly respected manufacturer and Power
Farming launched the Jaylor mixer range to New Zealand farmers in
2007. PFG, the Australian trading entity of the Power Farming Group
has been selling Jaylor through their dealer network in Australia for
over five years previously, so have great background knowledge on
With more and more pressure on land availability, farmers are now
turning to maximising the animal's full potential.
Jaylor has some very unique patents that make their machine stand
out. The square cut auger (single of twin) produce the most efficiently
mixed blend without damaging the fibre in the feed, its gentle lifting
action thoroughly aerates the mix producing a light fluffy palatable
feed. Obtaining the correct balance of incorporated straw (for scratch
factor in the Rumen) significantly enhances animal health and increases
production. At certain times of the year, the grass quality varies and this
allows farmers to better utilise the grass content of the days feed.
There has been plenty of evidence in previous years, especially in
drought stricken areas where Farmers using feed mixers perform well
ahead of their previous years production compared to figures being
well down for other farmers in the same area.
The second and more important point is cow conception rate this
coming year and in the future. Body weight is at an all time low and
going into winter highlights the importance to regain the animal's
Models range in size from 13 to 22 cubic metres capacity, requiring

Holstein friesian cow sells for an apparent New Zealand record price of $28,500, reports Diane Bishop.
A five-year-old pedigree holstein
friesian cow is believed to have
set a New Zealand record, selling
for $28,500 at the Southern Gold
Medal Sale in Gore.
Taieri dairy farmers Nathan and
Amanda Bayne, of the Henley
Farming Company on the Taieri
Plains, sold a two-third share in
holstein friesian cow Busy Brook
AP Rana for $28,500 to Australian
dairy farmers Peter and Jessica
Sale manager Bruce Eade said it
was the highest price paid for a
holstein friesian cow this year,
eclipsing the price of $24,000 paid
for a cow at the royal presentation
sale in Cambridge in June.
''It's quite possibly a New Zealand
record,'' he said.
''She's an exceptional cow and we
thought she'd get close to $20,000.''
Mr Eade said Busy Brook AP
Rana was the complete package
and had excellent production
She had produced 749 kilograms
of milk solids for 281 days in milk
at almost four years of age, which
equated to more than 2.6kg of
milk solids a day over the season.
At her last herd test in April her
protein test was 5.04 per cent.
More than 200 registered buyers
attended the Southern Gold Medal
Sale, which was hosted by the
Southland branch of Holstein
Friesian New Zealand, at the Gore
A&P Showgrounds last
A total of 25 lots were sold at
auction by Brian Robinson Live-
stock, including heifer calves,
yearling heifers, in-calf heifers,
cows, an unborn calf and several
lots of embryos.
The average sale price was $7228.
Mr Eade said the sale animals
were of very high quality and
there was something to suit
'There were a lot of show type
animals for purchase,'' he said.
Australian dairy farmers Peter
and Jessica Fullerton, who milk
500 cows at Warrnambool, in
Victoria, had attended the sale
after celebrating their 21st wed-
ding anniversary in Queenstown.
They were unable to take Busy
Brook home because of export
regulations so she would be
flushed for embryos and remain
with the Baynes, who still owned
a one-third share.
''She's got an aggressive look
about her that says, 'get out of my
way -- I'm going to make milk',''
Mr Fullerton said.
He said he hoped he would have
Busy Brook's progeny on the
ground in the 2014 spring.
''She's got everything we're trying
to improve on -- fertility, mastitis
resistance and longevity.''
Other top cow prices were $10,000
for both a Rivendell cow and a
Kuana Dairy cow and $9100 for a
Karatane cow while a Rivendell
yearling heifer also sold for
Middlevale sold the top heifer calf
for $2600, while Semex NZ sold the
highest priced embryos for $1900
