Growth in the industry over the years has seen the continued introduction of extremely innovative and revolutionary dairy and farm based technology. Local couple Shaun and Sheryl Jellie - owner/operators of Milk 'n' Water Matamata, are committed to ensuring that local farmers receive the best benefits and have reliable back up service whenever they need it.
Shaun and Sheryl purchased Milfos Matamata in October 2008 after managing it for two years, and stamped their individual mark on the business almost immediately by moving to bigger brighter premises. The increased space enabled provision for an extensive range of retail dairy essentials such as water pumps, fittings, rubberware and PVC, even a quality range of wet weather gear.
The expansive workshop area also enables more accessible and efficient servicing and maintenance, as well as designated areas for specialist services such as numedic drench system testing and repair, and light engineering services.
"We understand the development of farm systems and machine upgrades takes time" says Shaun, "and it is absolutely imperative that our clients and customers are fully aware of the system that best suits both their business and their budget. From a basic system through to highly automated management systems, it's our goal to meet individual requirements by delivering superior solutions using the most innovative technologies, engineering excellence and of course, providing quality service. The feedback Sheryl and I have received since our relocation has been very, very positive and striving to provide what our farmers want, we are definitely moving in the right direction."
With the aim of becoming a one-stop-shop, the latest addition to Milk 'n' Water, is an all terrain 4WD truck with a mounted winch and 5.5m long reach crane, will no doubt be of huge benefit enabling more efficient removal or servicing of pumps or units that previously have posed difficulty due to access issues. Lifting and servicing bores, deepwells or effluent pond pumps can now be easily taken care of and as well, the truck is available for hiring complete with licensed driver.
