Wild West Farms

Date: Monday, 16 February 2015

Tash and Trevor Robins of Western Southland have taken the next step in their dairy farming career after 3 years of contract milking, to a share milking position on Wild West Farms. Gearing up for the first of June, Tash and Trev purchased their first Tractor, a John Deere 6140M complete with a John Deere H340 Loader.

Tash and Trev have previously had the pleasure of driving green for many years with John Deere’s already operating on Wild West Farms, located 30 minutes west of Otautau. Trev said that making their decision to purchase a John Deere was simple. ‘I like John Deere's and I always have. My brother has a John Deere and my Dad too. I’ve always been surrounded by John Deere and know of their reliability and resale value so it just made sense’.

Their new 6140M is built upon John Deere’s renowned full-frame concept, which gives high structural integrity and low vibration levels. The PFC hydraulic system has been boosted to deal with the extra demands of constant loader work and hydraulic silage wagons. The 6M series tractors are the Southern Farmers first choice and built to withstand the toughest conditions. With its proven reliability and easy-to-drive systems, all staff members on the farm can operate it, no matter their level of experience.

Over the last few years Trev has worked closely with Southland Farm Machinery for regular services and has always found the service team “nice and easy to deal with, no hassles”.

Currently managing approx. 950 cows with the capacity to move to 1100 head of stock as well as two young children, Trev and Tash are kept on their toes and are ready to take on an exciting year ahead. The team at Southland Farm Machinery wish Tash, Trev and their staff all the best for the upcoming season.
