There’s no beef about the weather<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Highland dancers weren’t the only<br />

people performing ajig at the Rangiora<br />

A&P Show.<br />

Weather can make or break aone­day<br />

agricultural show. Organisers awoke on<br />

Saturday to near perfect conditions, in<br />

what went on to become one of the nicest<br />

days so far in achangeable spring.<br />

The fine conditions lured showgoers<br />

in their hundreds.<br />

Cattle classes might have been<br />

cancelled due to the Mycoplasma bovis<br />

outbreak, but all ages flocked to see the<br />

sheep.<br />

Youngsters were leading their pet<br />

lambs, old farmers were spinning yarns,<br />

and even new Waimakariri Mayor Dan<br />

Gordon cast his eye over the sheep<br />

entries.<br />

It was Mr Gordon’s first official public<br />

engagement since being sworn in as<br />

mayor last Thursday.<br />

‘‘My favourite time of the year is<br />

always coming to our local A&P show, to<br />

see all the machinery, to see the<br />

livestock, to see all the horses and<br />

everything that goes on.’’<br />

Mr Gordon says while he has no<br />

livestock on his lifestyle block at Ashley<br />

at present, he has akeen interest in<br />

Suffolks.<br />

Youngsters Anna Gartery, aged 8, and<br />

Amelie Bell, 7, were thrilled to win<br />

ribbons with their pet lambs in the Years<br />

3&4and Years 1&2classes,<br />

respectively.<br />

Anna comes from afarm at Cust and<br />

says her lamb is ‘‘cuddly’’. She likes the<br />

way he walks next to her.<br />

Amelie says she gives her lamb ‘‘so<br />

many cuddles’’. She plans to hang the<br />

ribbon up with her other prizes when<br />

she gets home.<br />

Hugh Taylor had the job of selecting<br />

the all­breeds champions. He was<br />

impressed with the sheep on display.<br />

‘‘I know the numbers are down awee<br />

bit, but generally the standard is very<br />

high. Alot of these sheep will go through<br />

the <strong>Canterbury</strong> A&P Show and do very<br />

well.’’<br />

Matt shows he has the right moves<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

The South Island Chess<br />

Championship trophy has a<br />

new home in Rangiora,thanks<br />

to the efforts of chess player<br />

MattMcNabb.<br />

For him, the ancient game<br />

is both apleasure and a<br />

passion, and it’s been thatway<br />

since he first learned his way<br />

around it as a5­year­old.<br />

He describes it as agame<br />

that’s easy to learn, but<br />

complicated to master.<br />

‘‘I was taughttoplay chess<br />

by my grandfather, who left<br />

me his hand­turned chess set<br />

whenhedied.<br />

‘‘I then wentontoplay club<br />

chess, as wellasplayingon<br />

the computer, constantly<br />

learning new strategies and<br />

new ways of looking at the<br />

game.<br />

‘‘I love it. It’s great fun,<br />

leaves nothing to chance,and<br />

you never playthe samegame<br />

twice.<br />

‘‘Infact,it’s said there are<br />

morepossible chess positions<br />

thanthere are atoms in the<br />

universe,’’ he says.<br />

Matthas honed his skills<br />

and competed extensively<br />

overthe years, although he<br />

has not managed to fit in many<br />

tournaments since moving<br />

backto<strong>Canterbury</strong> from<br />

Auckland 12 yearsago and<br />

starting afamily.<br />

However, he did make it to<br />

thismonth’stournament at<br />

the HeritageHotel in Hanmer<br />

Springs.There, he playedhis<br />

way to becomingjoint holder<br />

of the South Island title,<br />

bringingthe trophy backto<br />

Waimakariri for six months,<br />

before sending it to<br />

Show patrons flock to see sheep entries<br />

‘‘Andeven into the flock section<br />

there’s somevery good sheep,<br />

whichisgood to see.’’<br />

Check mate ... Matt McNabb with the South Island Chess Championship trophy.<br />

Invercargill to gracethe home<br />

of his co­winner, Edward Lee.<br />

The pair actually placed<br />

fourthequal on points in the<br />

competition,but the three<br />

players aheadofthem were<br />

from the <strong>North</strong> Island, and so<br />

were ineligibletowin the<br />

title.<br />

Matt says he has enteredthe<br />

South Island contest afew<br />

times,but never really had<br />

great results. Thathas now<br />

changed, but since it was first<br />

won in 1950, so manynames<br />

Gulls opt for abetter<br />

river spot after flood<br />

Black­billed gulls have been gathering<br />

over the lasttwo months in preparation<br />

for breeding on the Ashley­Rakahuri<br />

River.<br />

Theirprogress towards nestinghas<br />

been an interesting but chequered<br />

journey, as it has beeninprevious years.<br />

Ashley­Rakahuri RivercareGroup<br />

member Grant Davey says, at first,the<br />

birdssettled not farwest of the Cones<br />

Road bridge,<br />

‘‘Buttheir choice was not good,asit<br />

involved low islands very prone to<br />

flooding.<br />

‘‘Fortunately, only asmallpercentage<br />

of them were on nests because, as<br />

feared, afresh on <strong>October</strong> 19 forced<br />

them to move, he says.<br />

Within aday, they had congregated<br />

againabout 3km downstream, on amuch<br />

more suitable site, and by <strong>October</strong>22at<br />

least2200 birdshad beencounted.<br />

‘‘It was ahigherweed­free island<br />

offering protection fromboth floods and<br />

predators. The numberpresent is very<br />

similar to that whichinitiallyarrived on<br />

the river last year,’’MrDaveysays.<br />

Elsewhereonthe river, there has<br />

been avariable start to the breeding<br />

season for other species.<br />

One of the firsttoarrive was the<br />

banded dotterel. Mostnow have young<br />

chicks, while the pied stilt and blackfronted<br />

tern are only just starting to lay<br />

eggs.<br />

‘‘There are at leastsix pairs of wrybill<br />

present. Four havealready hatched<br />

chicks, includingthat of the onlybanded<br />

bird,BW­BW.<br />

‘‘He is present at his usual sitefor his<br />

10th season.’’<br />

Wrybill are the most iconic birdof<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

GroupChairman NickLedgardsays,<br />

despite its unique status, comparatively<br />

little is known about the species.<br />

Business optimism<br />

revealed in survey<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>October</strong> <strong>31</strong>, <strong>2019</strong><br />

5<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> businesses are<br />

holding their own and are<br />

optimistic aboutthe future,<br />

despite being nervous aboutthe<br />

wider New Zealand business<br />

situation, according to the latest<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Business<br />

Opinion Survey.<br />

The results, released this week<br />

by Enterprise <strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

(ENC),reveal strength in the local<br />

business community, with<br />

business profitability no longer<br />

negative (net 0% profitability<br />

compared to net ­15%inApril),<br />

and 48% of businessesexpecting<br />

more profitinthe coming year.<br />

Thirtypercent expect to<br />

maintain current profit margins.<br />

ENC business supportmanager<br />

Miles Dalton says it has been a<br />

tough year for manylocal<br />

businesses, but the future is<br />

looking good.<br />

‘‘On the whole,both salesand<br />

profits have been flat over the last<br />

six months, but lookingat<br />

previous profit cyclesthe<br />

indicators are that we should see<br />

some good results over 2020.<br />

‘‘Thisupcoming cycleiscoming<br />

from alower base so we can<br />

predict aprofitable 2020,but<br />

perhaps not as good as some other<br />

yearshave been.’’<br />

The surveyalso reveals that<br />

businesses are holding backon<br />

further investmentatthe moment,<br />

but are optimistic about their own<br />

prospectsfor the coming six<br />

months.<br />

Local business owner Laura<br />

Good, of Create Design Studio in<br />

Rangiora, says she is feeling<br />

positiveabout the comingmonths.<br />

‘‘I am excited for the next six<br />

months.<br />

‘‘Wehave actually seena<br />

significant lift in our turnover in<br />

the past six months, but Iknow<br />

somebusinesses have<br />

experienced aslightdownturn.<br />

While it is hardtopredictwhat’s<br />

coming, Ilike to lookonthe<br />

positive side.’’<br />

The surveyed businesses<br />

expressedalack of confidence in<br />

the general business situation in<br />

New Zealandwith anet ­41%<br />

confidence level. Thisisthe<br />

lowest level recorded sinceENC<br />

started surveying in 2013, but is in<br />

linewith businesses across New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Local businessesare continuing<br />

to employmore staff and the gross<br />

domestic product (GDP) in <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> is growingatthe same<br />

level as New Zealand as awhole.<br />

‘‘It’s certainlyamixed bag of<br />

indicators,’’ Mr Daltonsays.<br />

‘‘There is alevel of optimism<br />

thatbodes well for the future, but<br />

someofthe indicators suggest that<br />

businessesneed to continue to<br />

carefullywatchtheirmargins.At<br />

thisstage, 2020looks likely to be<br />

positive.’’<br />

Retired councillor would do it again<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

John Meyer says he has enjoyed<br />

working as part of ‘‘some great<br />

teams’’ during his time in local<br />

government.<br />

He retired this month from<br />

the Waimakariri District<br />

Council after five terms as a<br />

councillor, but will continue to<br />

serve on the Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi<br />

Community Board.<br />

‘‘If Ihad the opportunities<br />

again Iwould certainly do it.<br />

It’s been that pleasurable and<br />

we’ve had some great teams,’’<br />

Mr Meyer says.<br />

He was first elected to the<br />

Ashley County Council in 1973,<br />

when he was aged 25 and living<br />

in Amberley.<br />

‘‘It was my involvement with<br />

Jaycees in Amberley which led<br />

to me standing. They<br />

nominated me for council and I<br />

got on.<br />

‘‘Councillors in those days<br />

didn’t get paid, so Iappreciate<br />

these people who say they need<br />

more support. But Iwas lucky.<br />

Lynda was ateacher and Ihad<br />

agood firm Iwas working for<br />

who encouraged me and liked<br />

the idea of me being on the<br />

council.<br />

‘‘It was areally good learning<br />

curve and it was so enjoyable<br />

and challenging.’’<br />

After two terms on the Ashley<br />

County Council, the Meyers<br />

returned to Kaiapoi where Mr<br />

Meyer joined the family<br />

business at Williams Garage,<br />

now the Caltex service station.<br />

His father­in­law Ben<br />

Williams served three terms as<br />

Kaiapoi mayor.<br />

In the 1980s Mr Meyer joined<br />

the Kaiapoi High School board<br />

of governors before being<br />

elected on to the board of<br />

trustees and serving as board<br />

chairman.<br />

He was first elected to the<br />

Waimakariri District Council<br />

in 1995 and served two terms as<br />

Kaiapoi Community Board<br />

chairman before missing in<br />

2001 by just four votes.<br />

‘‘In those first two terms we<br />

had really good teams. We had<br />

some big challenges with the<br />

sewage system, growth and the<br />

roundabouts.<br />

‘‘The sewage system was<br />

corrected and sent out to sea<br />

rather than into the river, and<br />

the town was growing far faster<br />

than we thought it would.’’<br />

In 2010 he was re­elected to<br />

the council and has served on<br />

the local community board in<br />

all but three of the last 24 years.<br />

‘‘You can do little things as an<br />

individual, but, for the big<br />

things, working as ateam<br />

makes it far more achievable.’’<br />

Given many councillors are<br />

juggling jobs or running<br />

businesses, Mr Meyer wonders<br />

whether there should be fewer<br />

councillors to make it afulltime<br />

role and more authority<br />

could be delegated to<br />

community boards.<br />

‘‘I think there’s some merit in<br />

it and Ithink it would be fairer.<br />

That will come up for<br />

discussion again in the review<br />

period and those questions will<br />

be asked in ademocratic way.’’<br />

The Meyers have two adult<br />

children and four<br />

grandchildren.<br />

In his retirement, Mr Meyer<br />

plans to spend more time with<br />

his grandchildren, in his<br />

garden, working on his classic<br />

cars, and whitebaiting.<br />

He owns an MGB GT sports<br />

car, aRover P6B and a1964<br />

Rover P4.<br />

Long service ... John Meyer<br />

received aspecial trophy<br />

depicting his Rover P6B, in<br />

recognition for serving as<br />

chairman of the Waimakariri<br />

District Council’s road safety<br />

committee for the last nine years.<br />

In brief<br />

Braking targeted<br />

Anew road­user sign aimed at<br />

heavy­vehicle drivers has been<br />

drivers not to use engine brakes.<br />

It has been placed on the<br />

subdivision side of the heavytrafficbypass,<br />

shortlybefore the<br />

Lehmans and Oxford Road<br />

intersection stop sign. It was<br />

installed as acourtesy measure<br />

by the Waimakariri District<br />

Council to help reducetraffic<br />

noise for nearby residents.<br />

brakes are used in some heavy<br />

diesel trucks but can be<br />

ChairwomanPhillipa Hunt says the<br />

community supporttoensure rescued<br />

food is redistributed where it is needed.<br />

What became of former mayor?<br />

West Eyreton resident Wendy Morganis<br />

on amission.<br />

She is trying to traceher family tree,<br />

but is hamperedbythe factthat<br />

computers don’t comenaturally to her.<br />

In particular, she is lookingtofind out<br />

more about one ancestor, aman called<br />

William Wilson.<br />

His nickname was Cabbage, given—<br />

apparently—because of his preference<br />

for hatswoven from cabbage tree leaves.<br />

He was aprominentnurseryman and<br />

landowner in Christchurch,with one<br />

record showingacauliflower that was<br />

more thanthree feetincircumference<br />

and weighing 11lb –— just ashadeoff 5kg.<br />

He was also the first mayorof<br />

Christchurch and seemstohave been a<br />

powerfuland authoritative figure.<br />

He was apparently responsible for the<br />

central islandtree plantings on<br />

Fitzgeraldand Bealey avenues, and<br />

possibly the plantings on the banks of the<br />

Avon.<br />

Thesewere all implementedwhen he<br />

was subcommittee chairman responsible<br />

for thelandscaping of thoseareas,<br />

according to the website Papers Past.<br />

Unfortunately, his private lifewasn’t so<br />

Phillipa says Satisfy’s focusremains<br />

on better living and raisingawareness.<br />

‘‘We are trying to find away to engage<br />

the community and the focus is on waste<br />

reduction in the home.’’<br />

She sayspeople regularly throwout<br />

food whichisstilledible.<br />

‘‘People get confused with the ‘best<br />

before date’, but it has more to do with<br />

freshness, so it’s all about using your<br />

senses,’’ Phillipasays.<br />

‘‘If the datewasn’t there, how would<br />

you tell?’’Stef adds.<br />

The fundraising eventoffers two<br />

ticketing options, either come at 9.30am<br />

for asessionofyoga, or joininat<br />

10.30am for ahigh tea,with<br />

‘We have to play our part’<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

New Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> councillor<br />

GrantEdge expects the<br />

regional body’s ‘‘climate<br />

emergency’’ will remain<br />

in place for some time<br />

yet.<br />

He says climate<br />

change, biodiversity and<br />

waterissues are the most<br />

challenging issues facing<br />

the <strong>Canterbury</strong> region.<br />

‘‘Climatechangeisa<br />

huge issue acrossthe<br />

board. Whatare we going<br />

to do about climate<br />

change and all the<br />

implications it brings?<br />

‘‘It’s notonly aboutsealevelrise<br />

and low­lying<br />

areaswhichare<br />

vulnerable to flood,but<br />

changes to biodiversity<br />

and the effects on plants<br />

and animals.<br />

‘‘Theworld is saying<br />

‘letsget on with it<br />

because it’shappening<br />

already’, even in New<br />

Zealand. It’s aglobal<br />

issueand we havetoplay<br />

our part.’’<br />

Mr Edgewas elected<br />

‘‘It’sencouraging that<br />

experience,who havea<br />

wide breadth of<br />

knowledge and are able<br />

to ask questions and<br />

understand theanswers,<br />

have been elected on to<br />

the council.<br />

‘‘A number of them are<br />

scientists or have served<br />

on zone committeesor<br />

so we’vegot abit of a<br />

taste for what’s going on.’’<br />

‘‘It’sthe realisation<br />

that ECan coversacross<br />

you’remaking decisions<br />

that impact acrossthe<br />

‘‘In the campaign there<br />

was areal sense of alack<br />

of understanding about<br />

what ECanactually does,<br />

so there, perhaps, needs<br />

to be better<br />

New mayor set<br />

for challenges<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Craig Mackle is looking<br />

forward to the challenge of<br />

being Kaikoura’s new mayor.<br />

Mr Mackle was due to be<br />

sworn in yesterday at the first<br />

meeting of the new council<br />

after winning the mayoralty<br />

by just 12 votes.<br />

He says he has spent the<br />

last two weeks ‘‘learning the<br />

ropes’’, attending<br />

school camp and<br />

‘‘looking at my<br />

calendar and<br />

thinking ‘oh my<br />

God’!’’.<br />

‘‘The earthquake<br />

recovery will be the<br />

main focus over the<br />

next few years, to<br />

finish what we’ve<br />

started and stepping<br />

forward to brighter and better<br />

things.<br />

‘‘The next 12 to 18 months<br />

will be pretty hectic as there’s<br />

still quite abit of work to do<br />

until we get back on alevel<br />

keel.’’<br />

Mr Mackle says the new<br />

council will be heading away<br />

for aretreat next month to<br />

plan ahead for the next three<br />

years. It will be held at Mt<br />

Lyford.<br />

Three years ago the newly<br />

elected council was on a<br />

Craig Mackle<br />

planning retreat at St Arnaud<br />

in the Nelson region when the<br />

7.8­magnitude earthquake<br />

struck on November 14, 2016.<br />

The councillors made a<br />

hasty retreat back toward<br />

Kaikoura, but soon found<br />

themselves cut off from the<br />

town until being rescued by<br />

helicopter.<br />

‘‘It definitely created abit<br />

of panic and upset,’’ Mr<br />

Mackle recalls.<br />

The new mayor<br />

has been actively<br />

involved in setting<br />

up acharitable trust<br />

to build anew<br />

community pool and<br />

the trust will now<br />

need to appoint a<br />

new trustee, as the<br />

mayor is<br />

automatically<br />

appointed to the trust.<br />

Mr Mackle says he has big<br />

shoes to fill, following the<br />

retirement of Winston Gray,<br />

who led the district for nine<br />

years, including in the<br />

immediate aftermath on the<br />

2016 earthquake.<br />

‘‘I’ve only spoken with<br />

Winston briefly, on the side of<br />

the road, as he’s avery busy<br />

man.<br />

‘‘I just hope Idon’t have the<br />

same challenges he’s had to<br />

deal with.’’<br />

We have an early Christmas present for farmers!<br />

Get a FREE Logger upgradefor water consent meter,soil moisture<br />

and temperature monitoring equipment.<br />

Are you aware that ECan is focussing on Data Gaps for consent monitoring data and taking follow up action? This is<br />

where alogger has not captured data for aperiod of time and shows in the ECan records as aData Gap. If you are still<br />

using Aquacom monitoring units and the Aquacomnetwork you may be at risk of having Data Gaps.<br />

ECan have been communicating with data providers and farmers advising of data missing going back to 2018 (and in<br />

some cases 2017). This places additional and unnecessary stress on farmers and creates additional work for all of us.<br />

From our experience, most Data Gap issues are with the Aquacom units, so we’ve decided to solve this problem at the<br />

source by offering afree IoT logger in exchange for Aquacom units on properties throughout <strong>Canterbury</strong>. Farmers<br />

will get an improvement indata timelines, data reliability and eliminate additional expensive Aquacom repair costs.<br />

Not only will we replace your IoT logger, ifyou sign up before the end of November <strong>2019</strong>, Watermetrics will waive<br />

your consent monitoring fees from now until the end of <strong>2019</strong> season.<br />

By choosing the free upgrade, you will receive monitoring technology that can add additional sensors to monitor a<br />

number of ‘things’. One such example is our soil moisture and soil temperature sensor. Wecan provide these at<br />

$1,850 each, (500mm probe) plus some installation costs, plus GST.<br />

And the best part? It’s an early Christmas gift -absolutely freeupgrade in exchange for your old Aquacom unit.<br />

LOVE YOUR LAND


Transform<br />

your garden<br />

with anatural timber sauna<br />

For those seeking the ultimate in garden lifestyle,<br />

the answer canbefound at <strong>Canterbury</strong>Saunas, says<br />

business owner Mark Smith. As he explains, aFinnish<br />

barrel sauna turns agarden into asanctuary of<br />

relaxation, refreshment and rejuvenation.<br />

The barrels come from Finland and<br />

are made by apassionate family<br />

company, who live, breathe and<br />

sleep sauna, Mark says. They are<br />

handcrafted fromThermowood, a<br />

very slow-growing Nordic Spruce<br />

that has been heat-treated at205<br />

degrees celcius for two days. The<br />

timber is free of resin, durable, and<br />

not prone to warping, so is perfect<br />

for sauna. Thermowood is also 25 per<br />

cent more thermally efficient compared to<br />

cedar.<br />

“Similar-looking saunas are available elsewhere.<br />

However, at <strong>Canterbury</strong> Saunas we use 45mm-thick<br />

timber to ensure longevity and we offer many upgrade<br />

options, such aswindows and different lengths and<br />

widths.<br />

”People were taken aback at the recent <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Home Show, at the quality of the ball-and-socket<br />

joinery and how many growth rings were on the timber<br />

walls –people kept coming up and stroking them,”<br />

Mark says.<br />

Unrivalled in size and options for customisation,<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Saunas also exclusively offers<br />

the Huum heater range, from 4.5kw to<br />

18kw. The standard model holds 55kg<br />

of stones, which produces fabulous<br />

steam, and with an upgrade option<br />

the heater can be controlled<br />

remotely with asmart phone.<br />

For amore rustic feel, clients can<br />

also upgrade to atraditional woodburning<br />

heater, perfect for people in<br />

remote locations.<br />

Mark says sauna compares well to a<br />

conventional spa pool, without the need to<br />

run the heater constantly. Hehas used his St Albans<br />

sauna several times aweek for over ayear and has<br />

found that the electricity costs are about $2 asession.<br />

Virtually maintenance free, there are noslippery steps,<br />

filters tobechanged or harsh chemicals to add to the<br />

sauna –aquicksweep outand wipe down every few<br />

weeks issufficient. Oiling the outside of the timber<br />

once ayear is also recommended.<br />

Published studies from the University of Bristol, which<br />

used very large study groups over 20 years, have<br />

come back with some interesting findings, Mark says.<br />

Regular use ofFinnish-style saunas can reduce blood<br />

pressure and the chance ofstroke. It also benefits<br />

skin condition and eases breathing problems. Soft<br />

tissue aches and pains are also eased in the heat of<br />

sauna. Finally, the barrel shape and quiet environment<br />

combine to create afeeling of peace and sanctuary<br />

away from the hectic pace of life.<br />

Ease aches and pains away with a Scandinavian<br />

designed and crafted barrel sauna, the hot<br />

new option with some great advantages.<br />

1. Saunas only use power when in use.<br />

2. Saunas aren’t noisy.<br />

3. Easier to keep clean with no need for chemicals.<br />

4. Enjoyable in any weather, cocooned from<br />

the elements.<br />

5. Safer – no slippery steps, level floor, and easy to get<br />

in and out of.<br />

6. Lower maintenance because there’s only one<br />

working part, the heater.<br />

Wonderful wheels ... Malcolm Fraser and his wife, Joanne, enjoy getting out and<br />

about in Audrey.<br />

Audrey loves to cruise the<br />

highways and byways<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Rangiora’s Malcolm Fraser loves<br />

cruising in Audrey.<br />

He bought the 1965 Ford<br />

Thunderbird, which sports a<br />

stunning Cherry Bomb Amethyst<br />

paint job, about 12 months ago. He<br />

was drawn by its spaciousness.<br />

He had previously owned two, twoseater<br />

Corvettes. But now there is<br />

room for his wife, Joanne, and the<br />

grandchildren<br />

Malcolm will be lining up with<br />

Audrey at the USA Day at Woodend<br />

on Sunday, November 3.<br />

He bought the ‘‘old cruisey’’ lefthand­drive,<br />

390­cubic­inch V8 from<br />

Tauranga.<br />

‘‘She came in from California, was<br />

cream, and was pretty much original.<br />

‘‘She is not completely finished<br />

being restored —nocar ever is,’’<br />

Malcolm says.<br />

He tries to take her for atrip every<br />

weekend. ‘‘She floats along. Ilove<br />

driving her.’’<br />

Joanne, on the other hand, has no<br />

intention of getting behind the wheel<br />

and mastering left­hand­ drive. ‘‘It’s<br />

his sport,’’ she says.<br />

They both helped name Audrey.<br />

Joanne had put a‘‘Laundry’’ sign<br />

up in their new laundry, but the land<br />

the nfailed to stick.<br />

Hence her name Audrey, which<br />

can be seen on the Thunderbird’s<br />

back window.<br />

He is considering airbrushing<br />

Audrey on to the boot, in honour of<br />

the late actress Audrey Hepburn.<br />

Tony marvels at the digital revolution<br />

By GINA MCKENZIE<br />

WhenTony Benny startedhis<br />

journalism careerinrural<br />

Timaru in the 1970s,hehanded<br />

overhis articles and photos to<br />

the local bus drivertotakethem<br />

to the mainnewspaper office.<br />

Today, he usescutting­edge<br />

technologytoexpand his video<br />

production and communications<br />

businessbased at Coopers<br />

Creek,nearOxford.<br />

‘‘Itseemsfunnylooking back<br />

and remembering hurrying to<br />

get my copyand photos to the<br />

bus driverbefore he headed off<br />

to Timaru to drop it off at the<br />

Herald.’’<br />

TonystartedUpside Down<br />

Productions in 1998while still<br />

workingfor CountryCalendar.<br />

He credits advances in<br />

technology, including camera<br />

equipment, theinternet andnew<br />

devices such as drones with<br />

enabling himtooperate a<br />

nationwide business from atiny<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> village.<br />

‘‘Itwas agradual process as I<br />

startedbuying equipment and<br />

gainingclients, butwithout<br />

advances in technology I<br />

definitely wouldn’tbewhere I<br />

am today.<br />

‘‘It’samazing thatIcan sitin<br />

my home officeand upload<br />

videos or photos in acoupleof<br />

minutes now, when Ithink about<br />

how it used to be.<br />

‘‘Everything has become<br />

smaller and moreaffordable<br />

overthe last30years. Being able<br />

to capture drone footageadds a<br />

whole newdimensiontomy<br />

business.’’<br />

Tony saysmanyadvances have<br />

been madesince theearly1970s<br />

when teleprinterswereusedin<br />

newsrooms acrossNew Zealand.<br />

Themachinesprinted outnews<br />

from agenciesand therewould<br />

be along trail of computer paper<br />

snaking throughthe studioeach<br />

morning ready to be cutinto<br />

separatepage­sized sections.<br />

‘‘Iremember we had one guy<br />

in the TVNZnewsroom in<br />

Dunedin whose solejob was<br />

lookingafterthe teleprinter.<br />

‘‘It was something of acrisis<br />

when Iwas asub editor at the<br />

OtagoDaily Times if the<br />

teleprintersbrokedown —a<br />

manfromthe PostOffice would<br />

be called in at anytime of day or<br />

night to get them goingagain.’’<br />

When Tony workedfor TVNZ<br />

in Wellington during the 1980s,<br />

thefax machine wasviewedasa<br />

great step forwardfrom<br />

teleprinters.<br />

‘‘To be abletotype something<br />

andthenfeeditinto afax forit<br />

to be printed off in someother<br />

office seemed remarkable then.’’<br />

Tony laughs when comparing<br />

teleprintersand faxes to the<br />

technology used by his new<br />

drone.‘‘I got aphone callthe<br />

otherday when Iwas out getting<br />

some footage. We chattedfor a<br />

fewminutesthenIsaid, ‘I’llhave<br />

to go —mydrone’shovering up<br />

therewaiting for me’.<br />

‘‘We’rereally lucky to have<br />

this technology available and to<br />

be able to teach ourselves howto<br />

useit.’’<br />

Thebroadbandrollout has<br />

also helpedTony with improved<br />

we had to getasecond phone<br />

everything was reallyslow but<br />

now it’salmost as fast as the<br />

editing studio in Christchurch.<br />

‘‘I really enjoybeing able to<br />

workfrom home and usingthe<br />

faster speed internet.’’<br />

Tonytravels alloverNew<br />

Zealand to work with clients. He<br />

enjoysthe flexibility of usinghis<br />

phone as ahot spottodeal with<br />

filerequests and emailsduring<br />

driving breaks.<br />

‘‘Connectivity hasreally<br />

improved so Ican respond to<br />

wouldn’thave been possible a<br />

few years ago in manyrural<br />

Cloud­basedtechnologysuch<br />

‘‘Beingable to store largefiles<br />

which madeeverything more<br />

time­consuming. Everyone can<br />

Tony plans to keepworking<br />

past retirement age andsays<br />

further advanceswill allow<br />

‘‘I’ll keepworking as long as<br />

possible. Everythingisgetting<br />

Holstein fan off to Switzerland<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Ayoung <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

‘‘It’s areally humbling<br />

experience to have been<br />

selected to be part of the New<br />

‘‘It will be an exceptional<br />

opportunity to meet other<br />

breedersand visit some of<br />

The brothersare trained<br />

artificial insemination<br />

technicians and the business<br />

has an embryo transfer<br />

programme.<br />

‘‘We’ve been importinghighquality<br />

embryosfrom Canada<br />

to implant in our cowsfor the<br />

past five or six years,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘It’sakey part of our<br />

It’sall about milking smarter<br />

Milking efficiency helpstoattractand<br />

retainstaff through better labour<br />

management.<br />

When long workinghours on­farm<br />

becomethe norm,stress, fatigue,and<br />

resentment can start to dominatedaily<br />

routines.<br />

Often,sharemilkersorstaff will move<br />

on to another farm where the work­life<br />

balance is better.<br />

On most dairy farms, milkingaccounts<br />

for more than 50 percent of staffhours,<br />

so it makes sense to target that areafor<br />

efficiency, as savings can significantly<br />

reducetotal hours worked.<br />

That’swhy consultantJosh Wheeler, a<br />

recognisedMilksmartexpertfrom<br />

quality management systems provider<br />

QCONZ,has beencontracted by<br />

DairyNZ to work directly with farmer<br />

discussiongroups and provide<br />

Milksmart workshops for rural<br />

professionals.<br />

His aim is to helpfarmers understand<br />

the valueofDairyNZ’s Milksmart<br />

efficiency programmeand other similar<br />

approaches, suchasDairyNZ’s MaxT<br />

milking strategy.<br />

With MaxT, cowsare milked to a<br />

maximum time —one that will shorten<br />

milking duration for up to the slowest 20<br />

percent of cows.<br />

‘‘Any dairy farmers who can provide<br />

betterworking hours for themselves and<br />

their team are morelikely to attract and<br />

retainstaff,’’ Mr Wheeler says.<br />

‘‘Demand is outstripping the supply of<br />

suitable people for on­farmroles,partly<br />

because unemployment across the<br />

country is only 4%.<br />

breeding strategy.’’<br />

The herd’spedigree<br />

HolsteinFriesians are<br />

registered under Belbrook<br />

Holsteins.<br />

It is the leading herd in New<br />

Zealand for having the highest<br />

number of excellent cows (120),<br />

according to Holstein<br />

International magazine.<br />

Robbie’s long­term goal is for<br />

one of his bovine beauties to be<br />

named supreme champion<br />

dairy cow at theNew Zealand<br />

Agricultural Show.<br />

The Wakelins are taking<br />

eight cowsand fourheifers to<br />

nextmonth’s show.<br />

His love of showing began in<br />

primary school, when his late<br />

father Trevor Wakelin boughta<br />

cow named Cresslands<br />

Ambition Dalia EX4.<br />

‘‘ShowingDalia’sfirst calf<br />

ignited my passionfor cows<br />

and the Holstein Friesian<br />

breed in particular,’’ he says.<br />

Robbie doesn’tjust show<br />

cattle; he is also atrained<br />

judge. He became an associate<br />

judge in 2008, when he was 16.<br />

He has judged at several<br />

shows, on­farm competitions<br />

and club competitions.<br />

‘‘Onfarmswheremilkingtimes are<br />

morethan threehours, staffare waking<br />

before 4am to go and get the cows,’’ he<br />

says.<br />

‘‘That’shard on the body,gettingupat<br />

thattime.<br />

‘‘So, if theycan become more efficient<br />

at milking and startcloser to 5am,<br />

everyone can get abit more time in bed.<br />

‘‘That’sone of the main‘buy­ins’ for<br />

manyfarmersand their staff.<br />

‘‘Implementing MaxT’s milking<br />

strategy has been showntobethe most<br />

efficient way to milk cows.<br />

‘‘I’ve found that, on­farm, MaxT<br />

provides benefits that are not only good<br />

for people, but also for cow health and<br />

the business’s bottomline.’’<br />

Mr Wheeler has worked withplentyof<br />

farmers using Milksmart and MaxT who<br />

havesaved one to two hours per milking<br />

—that’stwo to four hours aday if<br />

milking twice daily.<br />

The teamcan also plan around<br />

milking with more accuracy, thanks to<br />

moreconsistent finishing times.<br />

‘‘Farmers talk about ‘labour saving’,<br />

but they’re not looking to cut back on<br />

labour.<br />

‘‘It’s aboutredirecting it, so theydon’t<br />

needtoadd extra time on to the day to<br />

get other jobs done.<br />

‘‘Italso frees up more timefor better<br />

decision­makingand for family,<br />

activities.’’<br />

DAIRY FARMING IN NORTH CANTERBURY<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> <strong>News</strong>, <strong>October</strong> <strong>31</strong>, <strong>2019</strong><br />

Cows sure to look their best at show<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

The Sherriff familyisbusy<br />

transitioning cows from<br />

grass to dry feed, as the<br />

New Zealand Agricultural<br />

Show approaches.<br />

The <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

dairy farmers have won<br />

supremechampiondairy<br />

cow at the Christchurch<br />

show for the last three<br />

years and have ateam of<br />

seven cowsintraining for<br />

this year’sshow.<br />

Olivia Cahill farms with<br />

her husband Jared and<br />

father Peter Sherriff at<br />

Ohoka, near Rangiora, and<br />

is in charge of preparing<br />

the team of cowsfor the<br />

show, being heldat<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>Agricultural<br />

Park in mid­November.<br />

‘‘We start about fourto<br />

five weeks out, by bringing<br />

them off the grass and<br />

puttingthem in the shed,<br />

feedingthem hay, putting<br />

them on the halter and<br />

then returningthem to<br />

grass.<br />

‘‘A weekout from the<br />

show they are just on dry<br />

feed, replicating what they<br />

will get at the show.’’<br />

Olivia saysthe pens at<br />

the show are prepared over<br />

the weekend,‘‘so by the<br />

time we bringthe cowsin<br />

on Mondaythey can just<br />

walk in, sit down and<br />

relax’’.<br />

The cowswill stick to<br />

their normal schedule of<br />

morningand evening<br />

milkings duringshow<br />

week, except on Thursday,<br />

which is judging day.<br />

‘‘We get them full of milk<br />

on Thursday.Wewill work<br />

out how much milk to keep<br />

on them so the judge can<br />

look at how they holdtheir<br />

milk up,’’ she says.<br />

‘‘It’sabouttaking what<br />

you’vebred and showing<br />

them off and hopefully<br />

doing well.’’<br />

Peter says showing cattle<br />

is about production<br />

attributes, rather than ‘‘a<br />

beautycontest’’.<br />

Their two­timesupreme<br />

champion cow, 7­year­old<br />

Maria,was recently tested<br />

with 48 litresofmilk.<br />

‘‘Mostfarmers would be<br />

happy if theircows were<br />

producing 20 litres and it<br />

doesn’t costtwice as much<br />

to feedher and you don’t<br />

need to get her in calftwice<br />

as oftentoget that48<br />

litres.’’<br />

The Sherrainestud cows<br />

weigh in at around600kg<br />

each, considered ‘‘too big’’<br />

by New Zealand standards;<br />

and American genetics are<br />

used in their breeding,<br />

which means the<br />

Sherraine herd has apoor<br />

‘‘breed worth’’ratingwith<br />

Livestock Improvement<br />

Corporation (LIC).<br />

‘‘We have aminus­187<br />

‘breedworth’, whichis<br />

considered oneofthe<br />

poorest herdsinNew<br />

Zealand,’’ Peter says.<br />

‘‘But how many cows<br />

Top producers ... Father and daughter team Peter Sherriff and Olivia Cahill are expecting<br />

45,000litres of milk in their<br />

lifetime?’’<br />

Carra,now 11, who won<br />

supreme champion in 2016,<br />

has producedmore than<br />

60,000litres and was the<br />

only entrant in the<br />

45,000­plus litresclass at<br />

last year’s show. This year<br />

Carra will be joinedby<br />

Maria in the 45,000­plus<br />

litresclass, Olivia says.<br />

‘‘Environmental issues<br />

are the big thing going<br />

forward and theseare the<br />

New Zealandcowsofthe<br />

future.’’<br />

The next big thing ... Olivia Cahill checks on 5­year­old<br />

Tractor module ... There were several tasks relating to practical on­farm work, including<br />

atractor module.<br />

Coating breakthrough hailed as agame-changer<br />

Could nanotechnology increase on­farm<br />

productivityand reduce environmental<br />

impacts?<br />

That is aquestion aLincoln University<br />

research teamhopes to answer, thanks to<br />

a$1milliongrant from the Ministry of<br />

Business, Innovation and Employment’s<br />

endeavour fund.<br />

Lincoln University Associate Professor<br />

Craig Bunt says his team will develop a<br />

groundbreaking nano­coatingwhich can<br />

be appliedtofertilisertocontrol its rate of<br />

release into soil, and to seeds to control<br />

their timing of germination.<br />

‘‘Controlling fertiliser rate­of­release is<br />

important because release that is too<br />

rapid can result in excessive nitrogen<br />

being lost into soil and waterways, causing<br />

significant pollution and other negative<br />

environmental impacts.<br />

‘‘When nitrogen is lost,farmers must<br />

apply more fertiliser to achieve desired<br />

results, which increases farming costs.’’<br />

The team will initially focus on<br />

understanding the science of the new<br />

polyester nano­coatingand its<br />

biodegradation.<br />

lineduptojudge at this year’s<br />

show,says Anne Rogers, who is<br />

convenor of the cattle and<br />

alpaca committee.<br />

and it shouldcreate plenty of<br />

interest in the alpaca section,’’<br />

says Mrs Rogers,who is an<br />

Mr Nasemann was bornin<br />

Germany,went to school in<br />

has judgedatalpaca shows<br />

throughoutEuropeand <strong>North</strong><br />

Europe.<br />

Mrs Rogerssaysalpaca<br />

entries are up slightly on last<br />

year, withjudging due to take<br />

place on the Thursday and<br />

Fridayofthe show.<br />

Having thealpacas located<br />

close to the cattle ring makes<br />

the jobofconvening both<br />

sections easier, she says.<br />

‘‘Most of my time will be with<br />

the alpacas, but Idorove over<br />

to the otherside throughoutthe<br />

three days.<br />

‘‘Wemoved the alpacas to a<br />

new area last year,whichhas<br />

worked reallywell.<br />

‘‘I love the new area; it’s on a<br />

diagonal, so we back on to the<br />

cattle arena.<br />

‘‘It’s areallynice area.’’<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Next month’s New Zealand Trotting Cup<br />

Day at Addington Raceway will be a<br />

nervoustime for <strong>Canterbury</strong>’s new race<br />

caller, Matthew Cross.<br />

The young commentator, who grew up<br />

in Kaiapoi and went to school there, took<br />

over from Mark McNamara as race<br />

caller for the <strong>Canterbury</strong> region last<br />

August.<br />

He was aguest speaker at the<br />

Rangiora Harness Racing Club’s annual<br />

generalmeetingthis month.<br />

Matthew, aged 26, said he was looking<br />

forwardtocalling the $750,000 race on<br />

Tuesday, November 12.<br />

It was something he had longed to do<br />

since he was ateen watching Reon<br />

Murtha calling races at Addington.<br />

‘‘Everyone else was watching the races<br />

but Iwas watching Reon up in the<br />

commentary box,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘I knew then that was what Iwanted to<br />

do when Iwas old enough.<br />

HARNESS RACING<br />

‘‘I am very fortunate to be doing what<br />

Iamdoing now.’’<br />

However, he is sure there will be<br />

butterflies before the big race on Cup<br />

Day.<br />

‘‘It will be an incredible honour to call<br />

such aprestigious race.<br />

‘‘Everyday Ithink about it.’’<br />

After leaving school, Matt became a<br />

junior driver working for Cran Dalgety<br />

at West Melton for two years.<br />

He also worked for Mark Jones at<br />

Burnham andWoodendBeach trainers<br />

David and Catherine Butt before<br />

accepting acadetship with the New<br />

Zealand Racing Board as understudy to<br />

Mark McNamara and Trackside<br />

television presenter Greg O’Connor.<br />

He did his first race commentaries at<br />

the Rangiora Harness Racing Club’s<br />

meetingonJune 29, 2014,calling two<br />
