Reymer Agriculture

5/5

Reymer Hay Baling Contractors

A third generation family business, Reymer Ag Contractors was established in the 1960s by the late John Reymer Senior.

Reymer Agriculture provided farming and haymaking services to local farmers in the Tihiroa region, just 10km south of the current depot in Pirongia.
John was highly innovative, being one of the first in NZ to use Massey Ferguson tractors, having the first loader wagon in NZ, and continuing the trend of helping the community grow.

John’s son Bill took over the An Contractors business in the 1970s, evolving Reymer Agriculture from conventional hay to round-bailed silage, and introducing methods such as direct drilling and undersowing. Bill had one of the first Massey Ferguson cab tractors in NZ, establishing Reymer Ag’s reputation of having the best equipment available, which continues today.

Introducing a third generation was up to Bill’s two son’s Chris and Mike. Growing up with the industries of machinery and farming in their blood, Chris and Mike entered the business in 2005. This followed Mike spending eight years in the UK, dairy farming, working on family farms, and general farming contracting work, helping him establish his own values and experiences from a different perspective, and incorporating them into Reymer AG.


After a short dairy farming career, Chris also traveled to Australia and the UK, driving for different farmers and contractors, and gaining experience in drilling and harvesting.

Over the past 10 years, the brothers have expanded operations to encompass the full range of services from spraying out to harvest, with a fleet of modern and well-maintained equipment, and continue to work with their father, Bill, on growing Reymer Ag.

Slattery Hay Baling Contractors

Slattery Rural Contractors

Ag Contractors -The Slattery Family has been involved in Ag Contracting since the mid 1950’s, starting with Roger’s father and uncle, Paul and Ray, they made Hay and cultivated land, sometimes breaking in land many miles away from home. 

Roger’s mother ran the farm, took the phone calls from Clients, organised the hay gangs, and looked after the 5 Slattery Children. Roger took over the business in the early 1980’s.

The business has grown from harvesting conventional hay bales, ploughing and Undersowing to the wide range of services that Slattery Contracting Ltd can offer their clients now and into the future. 

The Slattery family has had a long association with Matamata and a longer association with Rural Contracting.

Back in the mid 1950’s Paul and Ray Slattery started to bale conventional hay and cultivate paddocks. Paul’s wife Justine answered the phone, took the bookings, organized the workers, ran the farm, milked the cows and raised the five Slattery Children while the boys were off baling hay.

In the early days when times were tough it was common for farmers to work off their bill, driving the hay balers or hay bob for the Slattery Brothers, as it was known then.

A couple of workers from back in the day continued their association with the Slattery’s when Roger took over in the early 1980’s, and are still clients to this day.

Merv West remembers when Ray and Paul tendered for a Tractor from Waikeria Prison. One afternoon they got a trailer from the hire centre, after Ray called the prison and was told not to pick up the tractor that day.

The boys and their brother Pat, along with Merv headed off. When they arrived the prison guard was not a happy camper but Ray blamed Jim, their “phantom” brother for not passing on the message. 

The boys managed to get the front wheels onto the trailer but couldn’t get the rear wheels up. The prison officer was beside himself when they drove off, with the tractor only halfway on the trailer. 

Heading up through Kihikihi the boys spotted a farmer in a paddock with a Front end loader on the tractor, they wandered over to him and asked for help. When he saw the tractor hanging off the end of the trailer he commented that it was lucky the tractor had fallen off the trailer just there, little did he know that they had driven from Waikeria like that.

Merv worked for the Slattery Brothers in the early 1970’s and since 1968 has had the Slattery Family doing his Ag Contracting when he started share milking.

The Late Bruce Stanley recalled driving for the Slattery’s in the 1970’s, with his tractor and mower. He had come from a lovely flat farm and got an education on how to mow hills at Jack Elliot’s farm (now Alexander’s/Hobbiton)

We also have large trucks that can transport Transportable Homes 

 “Paul used to drive out to see me with the biggest smile on his face and call out “Dr Livingston I presume” and every time Paul sees Bruce Stanley to this day he says the same greeting. “It has been the most amiable relationship and great to work with both generations”.

And there are clients that have been working with the Slattery family for 50 years to produce hay and in later year’s silage. When talking to D.J. O’Sullivan recently he said “I have been in Matamata for 50 years, and any contracting done in that time was done by the Slattery’s.” He recalled price negotiations around his kitchen table with Ray and Paul and a crate or two of something.

Our Ag Contactors run harvesters, loader wagons, balers, cultivation, planting and fertilizer spreading equipment, a digger and scoop for earthworks along with a fleet of trucks and tractors. 

During the busy grass and maize seasons in spring, summer and autumn our staff grows as we get experienced drivers from overseas in. We’ve been operating in the South Waikato, originally as Ireland & Bolt Contracting, for 30 years now. 

The hilly terrain provides great challenges and interesting work for us, as well as better drainage than perhaps flatter areas would have.

As well as the ag contracting side of the business, Ireland Contracting grows maize for sale & grass for silage bales on three properties located in Tirau, Putaruru and Tokoroa. Not only does this provide quality feed for our customers, but has the added benefit of also creating work for our staff.

Originally established in 1993 as Ireland & Bolt Contracting, the company was renamed Ireland Contracting in 2005 after John Bolt was bought out. 

Ireland and Bolt travelled anywhere from Bombay Hills south of Auckland to Rangitaiki on the Taupo-Napier road. Today, Ireland Contracting focuses on the South Waikato and surrounding districts, and is slowly expanding the range of services we provide.

May Brothers Contracting

Methven-based ag contractors Tim and Phil May know that you reap what you sow in life. Growing up on a mid Canterbury cropping farm, Tim says that he was always keen to get off the school bus and jump onto his dad’s tractor. He’s never been afraid of hard work. Leaving school at 15, Tim and his brother Phil, bought a second hand Hesston windrower and started windrowing around the Methven area. That was 16 years ago. 

Tim says that mid Canterbury’s Small Seeds and Grass seed industry was growing and there weren’t a lot of other contractors doing it in the area at the time. “It just seemed like something that was going to take off in the future – which it has done really.”

From those early beginnings sprang May Brothers Contracting Ltd, with Tim and Phil as joint directors. The business has thrived through the brothers making the most of opportunities presented, a natural sense of innovation and a strong appreciation for the importance of reputation.
