What Uplands Cheese Say

Scott Merieka, from Uplands Cheese, feeds out approximately 1500 bales a year with his Chainless X5000, offering his cows all a chance to eat nutritious feed. This has directly influenced the increase of cows in his dairy from 150 to 230, raising fewer replacements and having a better performance from his fresh cows. Scott has experienced a 0% postpartum mortality rate for the first time this season and says its 100% because of the way they changed their feeding and fine-tuning having no waste with his Hustler Chainless X5000.
