"Using one of our handlers for bedding provides us with flexibility"
James Johns farms a herd of 260 high performance Holsteins, as well as 180 acres of maize and 100 acres of cereals with his father Andrew, close to Newquay in England.
After years of bedding livestock by hand, when James saw the Telehawk in September 2013 he 'pounced on it'.
"We have been able to reduce straw wastage by only putting as much straw in the pens as is required, and the straw that is delivered by the Telehawk is evenly spread which creates a bed that lasts longer - we have reduced the number of bales we use by around 25%-30%. Whilst we do save time compared to bedding by hand, the machine is paying for itself in straw savings alone."
"The Telehawk can be hitched up in a matter of seconds, it is manoeuvrable around buildings and because the machine is in front of the handler, visibility is good.
"We are making the most of our investment in our new handler, and we did not need to buy a second tractor so there was less capital outlay."
James Johns, - Newquay, Cornwall
