New Holland TS135A working with a NZ made feed out trailer feeding barley silage out on the feed pad.(Cows get 12kg each before afternoon milking each day.)

New Holland TM125 working with a Lemken plough.Regrassing a paddock that has'nt been turned over in 20years.(New grass with higher energy = more milk.)

Interesting to see some home grown machinery manufacturing, Olly. Would they make many units or is manufacturing more on a made to order basis, with companies turning their hand to making other things during quieter times?

Thanks for the reply Tris mate.

You'd be suprised how many basic feeding out trailers and the like are made for the local and Aussie markets each year by companys such as http://www.mcintosh.net.nz/ or http://www.giltrap.biz/ But like you say they often make things to your spec for a little extra than there base line models.
