TE PARI INSTALLED NEW YARDS FOR GEORGE AND FIONA KUCKA AFTER THEIR FARM WAS HIT BY THE AUSTRALIAN BUSH FIRES. WE RECENTLY WENT BACK TO SEE HOW THEY WERE DOING AND GEORGE COULDN’T SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH OF THE TEAM AND HIS NEW YARDS.
“When someone says you’re part of a family… you know what, I didn’t believe them (at first) but yes, you are, definitely. The way that they helped us out; the way that they support us with everything… they’ve been fantastic.”
Whenever George brings cattle inside, he’s thrilled with the yards’ performance. Whether they’re weaning, pregnancy testing, drafting or weighing cattle, the animals move intuitively through the wide gates and into the pens.
The yards are quiet to use too. The slam latches aren’t noisy, the gates swing silently on their nylon hinges, and the sides don’t rattle.
“It’s a safe, comfortable, stress-free experience for both us and the cattle.”
The concrete floor means George can use the yards in any weather. There’s no more mud after a downpour or dust in a drought.
And when it comes to getting cattle onto a truck, he’s sold on the new, stepped loading ramp. “We were dubious to start with, but the stepped loading ramp works very nicely. It all works as advertised.” Being safe in the yards is a huge concern for George and Fiona, so they love their yards’ sturdiness and durability. The walkway around the forcing area is a great feature which makes life easy when you’re working or moving the cattle around.
“They’re the nicest, safest set of yards I’ve worked, and safety is a priority.” All in all, George Kucka couldn’t be happier with his cattle yards and the service he’s received from the company. “It’s a company that you can trust will do what they say they’ll do, and the product they sell does exactly what it’s supposed to do and does it safely. I couldn’t speak more highly of them.”
