From Office to Farm - Pip Picks up a Bale Feeder

Pip - Hustler Equipment

Philippa Joblin, Pip, went from an office job in an insurance company, to Ruapuna in the South Island to help her sister and brother in-law on their farm. Find out more on how she discovered the Chainless bale feeder after jumping in head first here or watch the video connected in the link. 

Pip says her first job on the farm consisted of ways to keep the cattle fed, which meant feeding square bales every day to the young bulls and square straw bales in the colder periods to the calves. The Chainless bale feeder became much easier to use, as she was a natural farmer, having only been there for 3 weeks.
