Patz Success Story
Totally Blown Away
Albert and Rene Van Ginkel
Marigold Holstein Inc., Mt. Elgin, Ontario
Albert and Rene Van Ginkel, wanting a consistent mixed ration from a new mixer, selected the precision of the electronic scales of the Patz TMR 9300 Mixer.
The Van Ginkel Creed - Patz makes good equipment and Albert and Rene Van Ginkel know this to be the absolute truth! No nonsense dairymen, these brothers are determined to develop their operation to its fullest potential.
For example, consider the investment in a 240 Stationary Mixer. With their old system, the weighing accuracy was not up to the standard they wanted, and the production capacity was below the level they needed. With the Patz TMR Mixer, the accuracy of the electronic scale blew them away while the production rose to 1500 kg/cow/year.
9300 TMR Open Top Mixer
The 9300 TMR Mixer has been maintenance free... "no worries at all" reports Rene. Albert agrees, "there has been absolutely nothing (wrong)." Which is a good thing because as these busy operators point out, "There is no time to deal with break downs." That's why they own...
162 Conveyor & Belt Conveyor
As true to the creed as the other "Blue" equipment, the Patz conveyors have performed well and given the years of trouble free service the Van Ginkel brothers expect. "There have been no problems with the belt conveyor," says Albert, which proves his point that, "Patz does make good equipment."
The 8000 Pit Pump
This pump has tremendous capacity-like no other. In fact, Albert and Rene do some custom work with the 8000 Pump, and one customer will allow only them and the Patz pump to do his pit because "it is the only pump that will agitate the pit," says Rene. This pump, with its power and performance, has pumped out a "150,000 gallon pit into a lagoon in 50 minutes flat." Nothing else can measure up.
Their dealer, Embro Farm Systems, is located "very handy and close by, but with Patz equipment we just don't need them." What more is there to say...the Van Ginkel's settle only for the best!
