What other farmers say...

Hear what our clients are saying about the benefits of using a spreadmark accredited groundspreader

Susie, husband Mike, and their four children moved from farm management in Canterbury into farm ownership in Otorohanga. There, they farm 170-ha and run a mix of dairy and angora goats. Having previously supplied milk within the Synlait Lead With Pride™ programme, they were fully aware of the benefits of using a Spreadmark registered operator. Synlait’s Lead With Pride™ programme recognises (and financially rewards) suppliers who achieve dairy farming best practice and using a Spreadmark registered operator is part of the requirements. Naturally, when they moved up North, seeking out a Spreadmark registered groundspreader was a given for them, so they went straight to the Spreadmark register to find an approved groundspreader in their new area. Don’t underestimate how not being registered may be impacting on your business, apply today!
