Irongate Wagyu Chose Super Comby EX to Maximise Feed out Versatility
Irongate Wagyu, located near Albany, Western Australia, produce the finest Wagyu beef. We caught up with 30 year beef cattle veteran Mark James who manages the herd, to see why he chose Hustler’s unique Comby feeder…
Irongate Wagyu is on a property in the lush Kalgan River region located near Albany with an abundant water supply and excellent grazing land which makes it ideal for producing the finest Wagyu beef. Their breeding program is based on tried and proven traditional Japanese farming practices that have been successfully adapted by Irongate to suit Australian conditions.
Irongate Wagyu Beef has consistently been achieving some of the best meat grades outside of Japan. Full-blood Wagyu cattle are increasingly being graded 9+, higher than the highest grade in Australia! This in part is down to their secret ration that has been scientifically developed over the last ten years that gives Irongate Wagyu Beef its unique flavour, which is recognised internationally.
Mark’s chosen feeding system
Mark feeds a variety of bales, including 1000 round balage bales, and between 500-600 square bales of hay each season. When the time came to replace his previous feedout wagon, Mark wanted a feedout wagon that could feed out anything, so in tough times when he needs to switch between bales and pit silage, he doesn’t have to worry about changing machines. That’s why he chose Hustler’s versatile Super Comby EX, a 3-in-1 round bale feeder, square bale feeder and silage wagon all in one ultra low maintenance machine.
“the advantage I see with this machine
is that it doesn’t matter if we switch between
wrapped silage or pit silage”

Running a busy schedule at Irongate, Mark’s time is too precious to waste on putting up with the hassle of changing feeding machinery, and equipment downtime. Having invested in the Super Comby EX means peace of mind for Mark, knowing he can invest his time in more important tasks managing his cattle.
