There’s no beef about the weather

By DAVID HILL

Highland dancers weren’t the only

people performing ajig at the Rangiora

A&P Show.

Weather can make or break aone­day

agricultural show. Organisers awoke on

Saturday to near perfect conditions, in

what went on to become one of the nicest

days so far in achangeable spring.

The fine conditions lured showgoers

in their hundreds.

Cattle classes might have been

cancelled due to the Mycoplasma bovis

outbreak, but all ages flocked to see the

sheep.

Youngsters were leading their pet

lambs, old farmers were spinning yarns,

and even new Waimakariri Mayor Dan

Gordon cast his eye over the sheep

entries.

It was Mr Gordon’s first official public

engagement since being sworn in as

mayor last Thursday.

‘‘My favourite time of the year is

always coming to our local A&P show, to

see all the machinery, to see the

livestock, to see all the horses and

everything that goes on.’’

Mr Gordon says while he has no

livestock on his lifestyle block at Ashley

at present, he has akeen interest in

Suffolks.

Youngsters Anna Gartery, aged 8, and

Amelie Bell, 7, were thrilled to win

ribbons with their pet lambs in the Years

3&4and Years 1&2classes,

respectively.

Anna comes from afarm at Cust and

says her lamb is ‘‘cuddly’’. She likes the

way he walks next to her.

Amelie says she gives her lamb ‘‘so

many cuddles’’. She plans to hang the

ribbon up with her other prizes when

she gets home.

Hugh Taylor had the job of selecting

the all­breeds champions. He was

impressed with the sheep on display.

‘‘I know the numbers are down awee

bit, but generally the standard is very

high. Alot of these sheep will go through

the Canterbury A&P Show and do very

well.’’

Matt shows he has the right moves

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The South Island Chess

Championship trophy has a

new home in Rangiora,thanks

to the efforts of chess player

MattMcNabb.

For him, the ancient game

is both apleasure and a

passion, and it’s been thatway

since he first learned his way

around it as a5­year­old.

He describes it as agame

that’s easy to learn, but

complicated to master.

‘‘I was taughttoplay chess

by my grandfather, who left

me his hand­turned chess set

whenhedied.

‘‘I then wentontoplay club

chess, as wellasplayingon

the computer, constantly

learning new strategies and

new ways of looking at the

game.

‘‘I love it. It’s great fun,

leaves nothing to chance,and

you never playthe samegame

twice.

‘‘Infact,it’s said there are

morepossible chess positions

thanthere are atoms in the

universe,’’ he says.

Matthas honed his skills

and competed extensively

overthe years, although he

has not managed to fit in many

tournaments since moving

backtoCanterbury from

Auckland 12 yearsago and

starting afamily.

However, he did make it to

thismonth’stournament at

the HeritageHotel in Hanmer

Springs.There, he playedhis

way to becomingjoint holder

of the South Island title,

bringingthe trophy backto

Waimakariri for six months,

before sending it to

The pair actually placed

great results. Thathas now

Gulls opt for abetter

river spot after flood

Black­billed gulls have been gathering

over the lasttwo months in preparation

for breeding on the Ashley­Rakahuri

River.

Theirprogress towards nestinghas

been an interesting but chequered

journey, as it has beeninprevious years.

Ashley­Rakahuri RivercareGroup

member Grant Davey says, at first,the

birdssettled not farwest of the Cones

Road bridge,

‘‘Buttheir choice was not good,asit

involved low islands very prone to

flooding.

‘‘Fortunately, only asmallpercentage

of them were on nests because, as

feared, afresh on October 19 forced

them to move, he says.

Within aday, they had congregated

againabout 3km downstream, on amuch

more suitable site, and by October22at

least2200 birdshad beencounted.

‘‘It was ahigherweed­free island

offering protection fromboth floods and

predators. The numberpresent is very

similar to that whichinitiallyarrived on

the river last year,’’MrDaveysays.

Elsewhereonthe river, there has

been avariable start to the breeding

season for other species.

One of the firsttoarrive was the

banded dotterel. Mostnow have young

chicks, while the pied stilt and blackfronted

tern are only just starting to lay

eggs.

‘‘There are at leastsix pairs of wrybill

present. Four havealready hatched

chicks, includingthat of the onlybanded

bird,BW­BW.

‘‘He is present at his usual sitefor his

10th season.’’

Wrybill are the most iconic birdof

braided rivers and only breed in

Canterbury.

GroupChairman NickLedgardsays,

despite its unique status, comparatively

little is known about the species.

‘‘Forthis reason, we are askingthe

public to vote for the wrybill as New

Zealand’sBird of the Year —a

competition which gets under way

towards theend of thismonth.’’

Business optimism

By ROBYN BRISTOW

North Canterbury businesses are

holding their own and are

optimistic aboutthe future,

despite being nervous aboutthe

wider New Zealand business

situation, according to the latest

North Canterbury Business

Opinion Survey.

The results, released this week

by Enterprise NorthCanterbury

(ENC),reveal strength in the local

business community, with

business profitability no longer

negative (net 0% profitability

compared to net ­15%inApril),

and 48% of businessesexpecting

more profitinthe coming year.

Thirtypercent expect to

maintain current profit margins.

ENC business supportmanager

Miles Dalton says it has been a

tough year for manylocal

businesses, but the future is

looking good.

‘‘On the whole,both salesand

profits have been flat over the last

six months, but lookingat

previous profit cyclesthe

indicators are that we should see

some good results over 2020.

‘‘Thisupcoming cycleiscoming

from alower base so we can

predict aprofitable 2020,but

perhaps not as good as some other

yearshave been.’’

The surveyalso reveals that

businesses are holding backon

further investmentatthe moment,

but are optimistic about their own

prospectsfor the coming six

months.

Local business owner Laura

Good, of Create Design Studio in

Rangiora, says she is feeling

positiveabout the comingmonths.

‘‘I am excited for the next six

months.

‘‘Wehave actually seena

significant lift in our turnover in

the past six months, but Iknow

positive side.’’

The surveyed businesses

expressedalack of confidence in

the general business situation in

New Zealandwith anet ­41%

confidence level. Thisisthe

lowest level recorded sinceENC

started surveying in 2013, but is in

linewith businesses across New

Local businessesare continuing

to employmore staff and the gross

Retired councillor would do it again

By DAVID HILL

John Meyer says he has enjoyed

working as part of ‘‘some great

teams’’ during his time in local

government.

He retired this month from

the Waimakariri District

Council after five terms as a

councillor, but will continue to

serve on the Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi

Community Board.

‘‘If Ihad the opportunities

again Iwould certainly do it.

It’s been that pleasurable and

we’ve had some great teams,’’

Mr Meyer says.

He was first elected to the

Ashley County Council in 1973,

when he was aged 25 and living

in Amberley.

‘‘It was my involvement with

Jaycees in Amberley which led

to me standing. They

nominated me for council and I

got on.

‘‘Councillors in those days

didn’t get paid, so Iappreciate

these people who say they need

more support. But Iwas lucky.

Lynda was ateacher and Ihad

agood firm Iwas working for

who encouraged me and liked

the idea of me being on the

council.

‘‘It was areally good learning

curve and it was so enjoyable

and challenging.’’

After two terms on the Ashley

County Council, the Meyers

returned to Kaiapoi where Mr

Meyer joined the family

business at Williams Garage,

now the Caltex service station.

His father­in­law Ben

Williams served three terms as

Kaiapoi mayor.

In the 1980s Mr Meyer joined

the Kaiapoi High School board

of governors before being

elected on to the board of

trustees and serving as board

chairman.

He was first elected to the

Waimakariri District Council

in 1995 and served two terms as

Kaiapoi Community Board

chairman before missing in

2001 by just four votes.

‘‘In those first two terms we

had really good teams. We had

some big challenges with the

sewage system, growth and the

roundabouts.

‘‘The sewage system was

corrected and sent out to sea

rather than into the river, and

the town was growing far faster

than we thought it would.’’

In 2010 he was re­elected to

the council and has served on

the local community board in

all but three of the last 24 years.

‘‘You can do little things as an

individual, but, for the big

things, working as ateam

makes it far more achievable.’’

Given many councillors are

juggling jobs or running

businesses, Mr Meyer wonders

whether there should be fewer

councillors to make it afulltime

role and more authority

could be delegated to

community boards.

‘‘I think there’s some merit in

it and Ithink it would be fairer.

That will come up for

discussion again in the review

period and those questions will

be asked in ademocratic way.’’

The Meyers have two adult

children and four

grandchildren.

In his retirement, Mr Meyer

plans to spend more time with

his grandchildren, in his

garden, working on his classic

cars, and whitebaiting.

He owns an MGB GT sports

car, aRover P6B and a1964

Rover P4.

Long service ... John Meyer

received aspecial trophy

depicting his Rover P6B, in

recognition for serving as

chairman of the Waimakariri

District Council’s road safety

committee for the last nine years.

She is trying to traceher family tree,

but is hamperedbythe factthat

computers don’t comenaturally to her.

In particular, she is lookingtofind out

more about one ancestor, aman called

William Wilson.

His nickname was Cabbage, given—

apparently—because of his preference

for hatswoven from cabbage tree leaves.

He was aprominentnurseryman and

landowner in Christchurch,with one

record showingacauliflower that was

more thanthree feetincircumference

and weighing 11lb –— just ashadeoff 5kg.

He was also the first mayorof

Christchurch and seemstohave been a

powerfuland authoritative figure.

He was apparently responsible for the

central islandtree plantings on

Fitzgeraldand Bealey avenues, and

possibly the plantings on the banks of the

Avon.

Thesewere all implementedwhen he

was subcommittee chairman responsible

for thelandscaping of thoseareas,

according to the website Papers Past.

Unfortunately, his private lifewasn’t so

Phillipa says Satisfy’s focusremains

on better living and raisingawareness.

‘‘We are trying to find away to engage

She sayspeople regularly throwout

‘‘People get confused with the ‘best

freshness, so it’s all about using your

‘‘If the datewasn’t there, how would

Young talent gets an opportunity to shine

By DAVID HILL

Established musicianDavidRea

is impressed with the young

talentWaimakariri has to offer.

The former Rangiora High

Schoolstudent was back in his

home townlast Thursday evening

to judge at WaiYouth’s

CentreStage 6and performwith

his band, ElectricTemples,inthe

Rangiora Town Hall.

‘‘It was avery hardcompetition

to judge; theirtalent is so high,’’

David says. ‘‘I thinkthat halfof

the vocalists, if they auditioned

for JazzSchool(at Ara Institute of

Canterbury) theywould get in.

‘‘I’m glad that we were justa

guest act.’’

The 24­year­old is studying at

the Christchurch Jazz school. He

is working on his first solo album,

Time,and is amember of the

band The Preservatives,as well as

Electric Temples.

He was one of theoriginal

members of youthevents group

WaiYouth, in the days before

Centrestage.

The other judges were Emily

Johnstone, aformerstudent of

Rangiora High School and the

Hartley School of Performing

Arts, and Shannyn Miller, aJazz

Schoolstudent who playselectric

guitarfor Electric Temples.

They had to choose between

dancing and aerobics,aswell as

vocalists and instrumentals

performing anything from pop

and rock to opera.

Rangiora High School deputy

head boy LachieJames began the

entertainmentwith aduet with

his sisterBrianna as aguest act,

before returning for the final act.

The winner’s cheque of $1000

was presentedtoRangiora High

School student Sophia Ambrose,

aged 17, who performed

Habanera from the French opera

Carmen.

‘‘I have been singing for as long

as Ican remember.Iwatched the

musical Tomorrow whenIwas

five yearsold and Iwas really

inspiredbythat.’’

Sophia is planing to study

musicatthe University of

Canterbury next year and

performs avariety of music.

‘‘I played punk rock on electric

guitar in last year’s CentreStage.’’

Dancer Ataleya Dickie, aged

15, astudent of Rangiora High

School and the Jenna McKenzie

School of Dance, wassecond for

her original choreographed

routine of the song BodyLove by

Mary Lambert.

‘‘I just finished learning it this

morning. It’s asong about

bullying against girls and

accepting yourself, because true

beauty comes from the inside.’’

Ataleya says she will put her

$500 cheque towards attending a

danceconvention in Auckland

next year.

Kaiapoi High School pupil

Josh Keating, aged14, was third,

afteralead malfunction on his

guitar loop pedal put his

performance in jeopardy.

He returned after the

intermission to blow the crowd

away with The Eaglesclassic

HotelCalifornia.

‘‘I thoughtIhad lost it, but I

came back out in my hoodie and

Ijust went for it.’’

Winners are grinners ... Josh

Keating, left, aged 14, Ataleya

Dickie, 15, and Sophia Ambrose,

17 took home the prizes at

CentreStage 6.

‘We have to play our part’

By DAVID HILL

New Environment

Canterbury councillor

GrantEdge expects the

regional body’s ‘‘climate

emergency’’ will remain

in place for some time

yet.

He says climate

change, biodiversity and

waterissues are the most

challenging issues facing

the Canterbury region.

‘‘Climatechangeisa

huge issue acrossthe

board. Whatare we going

to do about climate

change and all the

implications it brings?

‘‘It’s notonly aboutsealevelrise

and low­lying

areaswhichare

vulnerable to flood,but

changes to biodiversity

and the effects on plants

and animals.

‘‘Theworld is saying

‘letsget on with it

because it’shappening

already’, even in New

Zealand. It’s aglobal

issueand we havetoplay

our part.’’

Mr Edgewas elected

alongside sitting

councillorClaireMcKay

in the North Canterbury

ward and is no stranger

to water and biodiversity

issues, having served10

yearsonthe Waimakariri

Zone Committee.

‘‘It’sencouraging that

peoplewith good

experience,who havea

wide breadth of

knowledge and are able

to ask questions and

understand theanswers,

have been elected on to

the council.

‘‘A number of them are

scientists or have served

on zone committeesor

the regional committee,

so we’vegot abit of a

taste for what’s going on.’’

He says it is essential

councillors bring awide

range of skills, giventhe

diversityofareas in

which ECan is engaged,

including air quality,

biodiversityand

biosecurity, freshwater

management,hazards,

risk and resilience,

regional leadership and

transport and urban

development.

‘‘It’sthe realisation

that ECan coversacross

the whole regionand

you’remaking decisions

that impact acrossthe

whole area.

‘‘In the campaign there

was areal sense of alack

of understanding about

what ECanactually does,

so there, perhaps, needs

to be better

communication.’’

He says ECan’s

primary role is acting on

New challenge ... Grant Edge is looking forward to

playing arole in Canterbury’s future.

New mayor set

for challenges

By DAVID HILL

Craig Mackle is looking

forward to the challenge of

being Kaikoura’s new mayor.

Mr Mackle was due to be

sworn in yesterday at the first

meeting of the new council

after winning the mayoralty

by just 12 votes.

He says he has spent the

last two weeks ‘‘learning the

ropes’’, attending

school camp and

‘‘looking at my

calendar and

thinking ‘oh my

God’!’’.

‘‘The earthquake

recovery will be the

main focus over the

next few years, to

finish what we’ve

started and stepping

forward to brighter and better

things.

‘‘The next 12 to 18 months

will be pretty hectic as there’s

still quite abit of work to do

until we get back on alevel

keel.’’

Mr Mackle says the new

council will be heading away

for aretreat next month to

plan ahead for the next three

years. It will be held at Mt

Lyford.

Three years ago the newly

elected council was on a

Craig Mackle

planning retreat at St Arnaud

in the Nelson region when the

7.8­magnitude earthquake

struck on November 14, 2016.

The councillors made a

hasty retreat back toward

Kaikoura, but soon found

themselves cut off from the

town until being rescued by

helicopter.

‘‘It definitely created abit

of panic and upset,’’ Mr

Mackle recalls.

The new mayor

has been actively

involved in setting

up acharitable trust

to build anew

community pool and

the trust will now

need to appoint a

new trustee, as the

mayor is

automatically

appointed to the trust.

Mr Mackle says he has big

shoes to fill, following the

retirement of Winston Gray,

who led the district for nine

years, including in the

immediate aftermath on the

2016 earthquake.

‘‘I’ve only spoken with

Winston briefly, on the side of

the road, as he’s avery busy

man.

‘‘I just hope Idon’t have the

same challenges he’s had to

deal with.’’

We have an early Christmas present for farmers!

Get a FREE Logger upgradefor water consent meter,soil moisture

and temperature monitoring equipment.

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

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

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

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

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

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

source by offering afree IoT logger in exchange for Aquacom units on properties throughout Canterbury. Farmers

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

LOVE YOUR LAND


Transform

your garden

with anatural timber sauna

For those seeking the ultimate in garden lifestyle,

the answer canbefound at CanterburySaunas, says

business owner Mark Smith. As he explains, aFinnish

barrel sauna turns agarden into asanctuary of

relaxation, refreshment and rejuvenation.

The barrels come from Finland and

are made by apassionate family

company, who live, breathe and

sleep sauna, Mark says. They are

handcrafted fromThermowood, a

very slow-growing Nordic Spruce

that has been heat-treated at205

degrees celcius for two days. The

timber is free of resin, durable, and

not prone to warping, so is perfect

for sauna. Thermowood is also 25 per

cent more thermally efficient compared to

cedar.

“Similar-looking saunas are available elsewhere.

However, at Canterbury Saunas we use 45mm-thick

timber to ensure longevity and we offer many upgrade

options, such aswindows and different lengths and

widths.

”People were taken aback at the recent Canterbury

Home Show, at the quality of the ball-and-socket

joinery and how many growth rings were on the timber

walls –people kept coming up and stroking them,”

Mark says.

Unrivalled in size and options for customisation,

Canterbury Saunas also exclusively offers

the Huum heater range, from 4.5kw to

18kw. The standard model holds 55kg

of stones, which produces fabulous

steam, and with an upgrade option

the heater can be controlled

remotely with asmart phone.

For amore rustic feel, clients can

also upgrade to atraditional woodburning

heater, perfect for people in

remote locations.

Mark says sauna compares well to a

conventional spa pool, without the need to

run the heater constantly. Hehas used his St Albans

sauna several times aweek for over ayear and has

found that the electricity costs are about $2 asession.

Virtually maintenance free, there are noslippery steps,

filters tobechanged or harsh chemicals to add to the

sauna –aquicksweep outand wipe down every few

weeks issufficient. Oiling the outside of the timber

once ayear is also recommended.

Published studies from the University of Bristol, which

used very large study groups over 20 years, have

come back with some interesting findings, Mark says.

Regular use ofFinnish-style saunas can reduce blood

pressure and the chance ofstroke. It also benefits

skin condition and eases breathing problems. Soft

tissue aches and pains are also eased in the heat of

sauna. Finally, the barrel shape and quiet environment

combine to create afeeling of peace and sanctuary

away from the hectic pace of life.

Ease aches and pains away with a Scandinavian

designed and crafted barrel sauna, the hot

new option with some great advantages.

1. Saunas only use power when in use.

2. Saunas aren’t noisy.

3. Easier to keep clean with no need for chemicals.

4. Enjoyable in any weather, cocooned from

the elements.

5. Safer – no slippery steps, level floor, and easy to get

in and out of.

6. Lower maintenance because there’s only one

working part, the heater.

Wonderful wheels ... Malcolm Fraser and his wife, Joanne, enjoy getting out and

about in Audrey.

Audrey loves to cruise the

highways and byways

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Rangiora’s Malcolm Fraser loves

cruising in Audrey.

He bought the 1965 Ford

Thunderbird, which sports a

stunning Cherry Bomb Amethyst

paint job, about 12 months ago. He

was drawn by its spaciousness.

He had previously owned two, twoseater

Corvettes. But now there is

room for his wife, Joanne, and the

grandchildren

Malcolm will be lining up with

Audrey at the USA Day at Woodend

on Sunday, November 3.

He bought the ‘‘old cruisey’’ lefthand­drive,

390­cubic­inch V8 from

Tauranga.

‘‘She came in from California, was

cream, and was pretty much original.

‘‘She is not completely finished

being restored —nocar ever is,’’

Malcolm says.

He tries to take her for atrip every

weekend. ‘‘She floats along. Ilove

driving her.’’

Joanne, on the other hand, has no

intention of getting behind the wheel

and mastering left­hand­ drive. ‘‘It’s

his sport,’’ she says.

They both helped name Audrey.

Joanne had put a‘‘Laundry’’ sign

up in their new laundry, but the land

the nfailed to stick.

Hence her name Audrey, which

can be seen on the Thunderbird’s

back window.

He is considering airbrushing

Audrey on to the boot, in honour of

the late actress Audrey Hepburn.

Today, he usescutting­edge

‘‘Itseemsfunnylooking back

He credits advances in

technology, including camera

equipment, theinternet andnew

devices such as drones with

enabling himtooperate a

nationwide business from atiny

Canterbury village.

‘‘Itwas agradual process as I

‘‘It’samazing thatIcan sitin

‘‘It was something of acrisis

when Iwas asub editor at the

‘‘To be abletotype something

It’sall about milking smarter

Milking efficiency helpstoattractand

retainstaff through better labour

management.

When long workinghours on­farm

becomethe norm,stress, fatigue,and

resentment can start to dominatedaily

routines.

Often,sharemilkersorstaff will move

on to another farm where the work­life

balance is better.

On most dairy farms, milkingaccounts

for more than 50 percent of staffhours,

so it makes sense to target that areafor

efficiency, as savings can significantly

reducetotal hours worked.

That’swhy consultantJosh Wheeler, a

recognisedMilksmartexpertfrom

quality management systems provider

QCONZ,has beencontracted by

DairyNZ to work directly with farmer

discussiongroups and provide

Milksmart workshops for rural

professionals.

His aim is to helpfarmers understand

the valueofDairyNZ’s Milksmart

efficiency programmeand other similar

approaches, suchasDairyNZ’s MaxT

milking strategy.

With MaxT, cowsare milked to a

maximum time —one that will shorten

milking duration for up to the slowest 20

percent of cows.

‘‘Any dairy farmers who can provide

betterworking hours for themselves and

their team are morelikely to attract and

retainstaff,’’ Mr Wheeler says.

‘‘Demand is outstripping the supply of

suitable people for on­farmroles,partly

because unemployment across the

country is only 4%.

breeding strategy.’’

The herd’spedigree

HolsteinFriesians are

registered under Belbrook

Holsteins.

It is the leading herd in New

Zealand for having the highest

number of excellent cows (120),

according to Holstein

International magazine.

Robbie’s long­term goal is for

one of his bovine beauties to be

named supreme champion

dairy cow at theNew Zealand

Agricultural Show.

The Wakelins are taking

eight cowsand fourheifers to

nextmonth’s show.

His love of showing began in

primary school, when his late

father Trevor Wakelin boughta

cow named Cresslands

Ambition Dalia EX4.

‘‘ShowingDalia’sfirst calf

ignited my passionfor cows

and the Holstein Friesian

breed in particular,’’ he says.

Robbie doesn’tjust show

cattle; he is also atrained

judge. He became an associate

judge in 2008, when he was 16.

He has judged at several

shows, on­farm competitions

and club competitions.

‘‘Onfarmswheremilkingtimes are

morethan threehours, staffare waking

before 4am to go and get the cows,’’ he

says.

‘‘That’shard on the body,gettingupat

thattime.

‘‘So, if theycan become more efficient

at milking and startcloser to 5am,

everyone can get abit more time in bed.

‘‘That’sone of the main‘buy­ins’ for

manyfarmersand their staff.

‘‘Implementing MaxT’s milking

strategy has been showntobethe most

efficient way to milk cows.

‘‘I’ve found that, on­farm, MaxT

provides benefits that are not only good

for people, but also for cow health and

the business’s bottomline.’’

Mr Wheeler has worked withplentyof

farmers using Milksmart and MaxT who

havesaved one to two hours per milking

—that’stwo to four hours aday if

milking twice daily.

The teamcan also plan around

milking with more accuracy, thanks to

moreconsistent finishing times.

‘‘Farmers talk about ‘labour saving’,

but they’re not looking to cut back on

labour.

‘‘It’s aboutredirecting it, so theydon’t

needtoadd extra time on to the day to

get other jobs done.

‘‘Italso frees up more timefor better

decision­makingand for family,

DAIRY FARMING IN NORTH CANTERBURY

North Canterbury News, October 31, 2019

Cows sure to look their best at show

By DAVID HILL

The Sherriff familyisbusy

transitioning cows from

grass to dry feed, as the

New Zealand Agricultural

Show approaches.

The North Canterbury

dairy farmers have won

supremechampiondairy

cow at the Christchurch

show for the last three

years and have ateam of

seven cowsintraining for

this year’sshow.

Olivia Cahill farms with

her husband Jared and

father Peter Sherriff at

Ohoka, near Rangiora, and

is in charge of preparing

the team of cowsfor the

show, being heldat

CanterburyAgricultural

Park in mid­November.

‘‘We start about fourto

five weeks out, by bringing

them off the grass and

puttingthem in the shed,

feedingthem hay, putting

them on the halter and

then returningthem to

grass.

‘‘A weekout from the

show they are just on dry

feed, replicating what they

will get at the show.’’

Olivia saysthe pens at

the show are prepared over

the weekend,‘‘so by the

time we bringthe cowsin

on Mondaythey can just

walk in, sit down and

relax’’.

The cowswill stick to

their normal schedule of

morningand evening

milkings duringshow

week, except on Thursday,

which is judging day.

‘‘We get them full of milk

on Thursday.Wewill work

out how much milk to keep

on them so the judge can

look at how they holdtheir

milk up,’’ she says.

‘‘It’sabouttaking what

you’vebred and showing

them off and hopefully

doing well.’’

Peter says showing cattle

is about production

attributes, rather than ‘‘a

beautycontest’’.

Their two­timesupreme

champion cow, 7­year­old

Maria,was recently tested

with 48 litresofmilk.

‘‘Mostfarmers would be

happy if theircows were

producing 20 litres and it

doesn’t costtwice as much

to feedher and you don’t

need to get her in calftwice

as oftentoget that48

litres.’’

The Sherrainestud cows

weigh in at around600kg

each, considered ‘‘too big’’

by New Zealand standards;

and American genetics are

used in their breeding,

which means the

Sherraine herd has apoor

‘‘breed worth’’ratingwith

Livestock Improvement

Corporation (LIC).

‘‘We have aminus­187

‘breedworth’, whichis

considered oneofthe

poorest herdsinNew

Zealand,’’ Peter says.

‘‘But how many cows

have produced more than

45,000litres of milk in their

lifetime?’’

Carra,now 11, who won

supreme champion in 2016,

has producedmore than

60,000litres and was the

only entrant in the

45,000­plus litresclass at

last year’s show. This year

Carra will be joinedby

Maria in the 45,000­plus

litresclass, Olivia says.

‘‘Environmental issues

are the big thing going

forward and theseare the

New Zealandcowsofthe

future.’’

The next big thing ... Olivia Cahill checks on 5­year­old

cow Lucy, who she hopes will enjoy some success at the

New Zealand Agricultural Show.

Coating breakthrough hailed as agame-changer

Could nanotechnology increase on­farm

productivityand reduce environmental

impacts?

That is aquestion aLincoln University

research teamhopes to answer, thanks to

a$1milliongrant from the Ministry of

Business, Innovation and Employment’s

endeavour fund.

Lincoln University Associate Professor

Craig Bunt says his team will develop a

groundbreaking nano­coatingwhich can

be appliedtofertilisertocontrol its rate of

release into soil, and to seeds to control

their timing of germination.

‘‘Controlling fertiliser rate­of­release is

important because release that is too

rapid can result in excessive nitrogen

being lost into soil and waterways, causing

significant pollution and other negative

environmental impacts.

‘‘When nitrogen is lost,farmers must

apply more fertiliser to achieve desired

results, which increases farming costs.’’

The team will initially focus on

understanding the science of the new

polyester nano­coatingand its

biodegradation.

German­born alpaca judge

RobinNasemann has been

lineduptojudge at this year’s

alpaca committee.

‘‘We’re thrilled to haveRobin

and it shouldcreate plenty of

interest in the alpaca section,’’

seminars about alpacasacross

Europe.

Mrs Rogerssaysalpaca

entries are up slightly on last

year, withjudging due to take

place on the Thursday and

Fridayofthe show.

Having thealpacas located

close to the cattle ring makes

the jobofconvening both

sections easier, she says.

‘‘Most of my time will be with

the alpacas, but Idorove over

to the otherside throughoutthe

three days.

‘‘Wemoved the alpacas to a

new area last year,whichhas

worked reallywell.

‘‘I love the new area; it’s on a

diagonal, so we back on to the

cattle arena.

‘‘It’s areallynice area.’’

Taste Hurunui at this Saturday’s Amberley A&P show is

aimed at showing visitors how to cook interesting meals

using New Zealand lamb.

Cup Day race call

By SHELLEY TOPP

Next month’s New Zealand Trotting Cup

Day at Addington Raceway will be a

nervoustime for Canterbury’s new race

caller, Matthew Cross.

The young commentator, who grew up

in Kaiapoi and went to school there, took

over from Mark McNamara as race

caller for the Canterbury region last

August.

He was aguest speaker at the

Rangiora Harness Racing Club’s annual

generalmeetingthis month.

Matthew, aged 26, said he was looking

forwardtocalling the $750,000 race on

Tuesday, November 12.

It was something he had longed to do

since he was ateen watching Reon

Murtha calling races at Addington.

‘‘Everyone else was watching the races

but Iwas watching Reon up in the

commentary box,’’ he said.

‘‘I knew then that was what Iwanted to

do when Iwas old enough.

HARNESS RACING

‘‘I am very fortunate to be doing what

Iamdoing now.’’

However, he is sure there will be

butterflies before the big race on Cup

Day.

‘‘It will be an incredible honour to call

such aprestigious race.

‘‘Everyday Ithink about it.’’

After leaving school, Matt became a

junior driver working for Cran Dalgety

at West Melton for two years.

He also worked for Mark Jones at

Burnham andWoodendBeach trainers

David and Catherine Butt before

accepting acadetship with the New

Zealand Racing Board as understudy to

Mark McNamara and Trackside

television presenter Greg O’Connor.

He did his first race commentaries at

the Rangiora Harness Racing Club’s

meetingonJune 29, 2014,calling two
