Paul and Annie Henshaw farm in a small rural area called Ikawai in South Canterbury, New Zealand. Milking 490 VikingJersey cows on 150 Hectares of rolling hills. The farm is irrigated using k-line irrigation lines that are shifted daily.
The farm when Henshaws first arrived was a run-down runoff that they planned to convert to dairy. With new central lanes, a new rotary dairy shed (space-saving), highly efficient VikingJersey cattle, some alternative pasture types and the strategic planting of shelterbelts, Henshaws have created an efficient dairy system designed for an owner-operator and worker.
