Holdings Ltd

Purchased and converted to dairy in 1995, Quintag Holdings was among the early dairy conversions in Canterbury. The name gives reference to the original five (Quin) Waikato farmer shareholders from Te Awamutu in the Quintag Holdings Ltd venture. 

Located 8km East of Ashburton, the 320ha property milking 1180 cows enjoys the benefits of rural living with the advantage of a service town and amenities close by.

In addition to the necessary farm buildings, five homes complement the farm to provide sufficient staff accommodation of a high standard.  All houses meet NZ Healthy Homes standards.

The Kiwi-cross herd have been fitted with Allflex collars to meet Spectrum’s people and animal welfare pillars by monitoring animal events such as heat detection, calving, stress or illness.   

  • Operational facilities include:

  • The original 50-bail rotary dairy with technology upgrades to support the Group strategy to provide flexible working conditions for people and monitored animal welfare.

  • ACR’s and in bail teat spray.

  • Pro-track auto drafting with individual in bail cow ID and Allflex monitoring.

  • In shed feeding (grain, PKE, minerals and molasses) with individual feeding module.

  • Effluent applied via travelling irrigator.

Irrigation water is provided via deep wells on the property and applied through pivot irrigation supported by a VRI module to manage water placement.
