GrazCare Heifer Grazing

We are a VetEnt Company that provides monitored and managed heifer grazing contracts of dairy stock on grazier's properties .

GrazCare New Zealand Ltdd is a heifer grazing company where growth rates are monitored on a regular basis, and reports after each weighing are provided to the stockowner and the grazier.

Dairy farmers are charged and graziers are paid on performance. There are two separate schemes for weaners up until 30th April, and for heifers from 1st May until 30th April when heifers are returned to the dairy farms.

Our Operations Managers, are responsible for monitoring the feeding and growth rates of heifers that have been sent off the dairy farm to be grazed. GrazCare gives farmers the peace of mind that their stock are being maintained and will be in good condition when they come back into the herd.

GrazCare has a comprehensive database which tracks the progress of individual animals including the monitoring of the animal's weight and animal health records.  Electronic EID tags are used and these are scanned and linked to weigh data at each weighing.

In order to maintain high standards for grazing stock, GrazCare has access to leading animal health specialists from our VetEnt clinics which are located nationwside and will only select the best available properties that have:

  • good fertiliser programmes
  • are well fenced, watered with appropriate stock handling amenities
  • are managed by farmers with the 'right attitude'

This ensures that GrazCare gets farmers consistent results for their grazing requirements.
