Founded in 1934 by Joseph Swap, the company began by supplying river gravel from the Waiomou Stream that bordered the family’s dairy farm at Te Poi. Loaded by hand on to a single truck, gravel was used by other farmers and for concrete production by local builders on infrastructure construction work in the burgeoning nearby town of Matamata.
The purchase of a dragline digger in the late ’40s saw the company diversify into civil trenching and drainage works and the project to widen the Kaimai road. A major setback in 1955 on a civil drainage project in Whakatane bought the company close to the brink, but the addition of David and Lewis, Joe’s sons, to the business and their stubborn approach to getting back on track saw it return to profitability and grow slowly.

Cows love Molasses, Molasses is a great all year supplement, and has been widely used on NZ farms for many years to supplement animal feed. However there is more to Molasses than what you may think. Scientific studies are revealing amazing statistics on the benefits of Molasses on milking and why it should be the first choice for farmers when choosing a supplement.
Did you know that Molasses –
Improves Feed Conversion Efficiency – Ohio State University conducted tests on Molasses versus starch based products and found considerable improvements in milk production using molasses versus just grains*.
Is Palatable – Cows love Molasses and when mixed with other feeds this in turn improves the palatability, especially PKE, and maize silage.
Provides Energy – The correct levels of Molasses stimulates appetite so milking cows will eat more which in turn boosts energy levels, improves pregnancy rates, maximises days in milk and improves MS production. Stimulating the cows appetite around calving when cows are trying to reach peak production is an investment that pays off.
Feeds Rumen Microbes – The high sugar content of molasses stimulates the growth and activity of rumen microbes. Increased microbe activity improves fibre digestion in the rumen especially high fibre pasture, PKE and maize silage and improves overall feed conversion efficiency.
Builds Resistance – The high-energy levels of molasses assist cows to be less susceptible to heat related stress in summer, and be less likely to suffer the effects of a harsh New Zealand Winter.

Oilseed Products NZ Ltd is a family owned and operated business started by Peter McNamara in 1977. Oilseed Products was the first company in New Zealand to bring in bulk shipments of vegetable oil for the food, chemical and resin industries and bulk shipments of soyabean meal for the stock feed industry.
The oil side of the business was initially based in an old 19th century villa on Auckland’s historic College Hill with the adjacent land housing a tank farm for the vegetable oil storage. In 1988 the tanks were sold to a bulk storage terminal on Auckland’s Wynyard Wharf and were relocated from college hill to the wharf. Oilseed Products owns a 25% stake in the BST tank farm on Wynyard Wharf where the old tanks from College Hill are still in operation today. They have had a lick of paint in recent years and feature prominently in Auckland’s Wynard Quarter developments.
Sales Director, Peter Cooke joined OSP in 1993 focussing on supplying vegetable oil to local food, chemical and resin industries and trading tallow internationally. In more recent years Peter has directed the expansion of OSP NZ’s “Feeds” business supplying high quality supplements to the dairy and goat milk industries nationwide.
The poultry and stock feed side of the business was initially largely operated from our site in Auckland’s Onehunga in an old fertiliser shed that OSP purchased in 1980.
We are a New Zealand company providing New Zealand and International Genetics to NZ Dairy Farmers.

Ngahiwi Farms was incorporated in 1989, but the genesis of the business dates back three generations to 1952. Frank Ernest Coates had served as a pilot in WW2, before settling his family on a block of land in Reporoa he’d drawn in the ballot.
The “farm” turned out to be a barely developed, 670-acre slice of the foothills of the Paeroa Ranges, covered in scrub and dotted with tomos. A chance was a fine thing in those days, and like the other ‘pioneers of the pumice’ in the Reporoa Valley, he bent the nutrient-poor land to his will through the sweat of his brow. His infant son, Bill, would grow up to buy the property in 1974, adding deer to the sheep and beef operations, and naming the property “Ngahiwi” (The Ridges).
When he eventually parlayed his farming experience into an animal feeds business, the Ngahiwi name came along for the ride. Over several decades, Bill built the business into one of the most respected and forward-looking brands in the country, establishing enduring relationships with farmers up and down the country.
More than thirty years after adding feeds to his farming interests, you’ll still find Bill dividing his time fairly evenly between the milk powder production line in Penrose, the farm at Reporoa and his vineyard and farm at Matakana. Two of his sons, Will and Anto, work alongside him in the business – and their toddlers are already being eyed for generation number four!
