Who We Are
Ngahiwi Farms have been supplying premium Calf and Lamb Milk Replacers to New Zealand farmers for over 25 years. We also supply an all-purpose Stockfood Milk Powder that mixes into dry feed and we can custom blend for other needs.
Ngahiwi Farms is focused on you, the farmer. We work closely with our customers, our suppliers and the industry, promoting the sharing of knowledge and ideas to find animal health and nutritional solutions for you.
Ngahiwi have been long-term sponsors of On-Farm Research – formerly known as the Poukawa Institute. On-Farm Research perfected the once-a-day feeding system and these days most New Zealand beef rearers follow their cost-effective calf-rearing methods. We believe the On-Farm method delivers you significant weight gains, early weaning and a more productive adult animal.
Ngahiwi Farms’ rearers consistently see earlier and increased weaning weights and experience fewer health problems.
All our milk replacers and powders are manufactured to the strictest standards in NZFSA-approved premises. If you are thinking of rearing calves or lambs, or wish to discuss any aspect of rearing in general, we are always happy to talk to you and answer your questions personally.
"I supplement my replacement heifer program with Ngahiwi Calf Milk Replacer and Whey Milk Replacer. I have never had any calf health problems and find the milk mixes readily and the calves love it. My heifers reached their target weight much earlier and cheaper than previously"
Businessman and Dairy Farmer (Reporoa)
"I rear over a thousand calves a year and always use Ngahiwi to supplement a liquid whole milk rearing program. I like the product, service and good value of their powder. All that you need - a premix, prebiotic, probiotic and coccidiastat, is in the powder. No need to buy expensive extras."
Calf Rearer and Beef Farmer (Maungatapere)
"I have used Ngahiwi Calf Milk Replacer for 20 seasons rearing thousands of calves in that time. Ngahiwi mixes easily and my young calves thrive. Ngahiwi contains, as standard, prebiotics, probiotics and a coccidiastat. Excellent product!"
