WAIKATO HEIFER GROWERS
About WHG Ltd
WHG Ltd, otherwise known as Waikato Heifer Growers are a well established family owned Agri-Services company specialising in the growing of weaner and yearling dairy replacement stock. The company is based out of Cambridge with grower farms geographically spread across the central North Island.
Established in 2004, Brett and Nadia Dixon joined as shareholders in 2015 and subsequently purchased the business outright in 2020. Brett comes from a strong farming background in the Waikato and a 12 year career in animal health specialising in anthelmintics and vaccines with Pfizer/Zoetis NZ.
Both farmers and growers are fully contracted giving both parties clarity and assurance. Stock are monitored and recorded on systems specifically designed for purpose by WHG Ltd and regular reports are supplied to the clients and growers. We strive to grow competitive, robust and on target in calf heifers.
Despite the recent disruption of the Mycoplasma Bovis and Covid outbreaks, the business has proven that running robust systems and processes limits risk. Traditionally dairy replacements have been thought of as a cost, an expense to be kept as low as possible to enable feed and resources to be directed to the lactating herd. More and more people, including successful dairy experts and scientists, now agree on the importance of heifer growing for profitability and sustainability of the farming business.
