Veloce – Italian for fast MARK DANIEL

FARMERS WHO have yet to update their NAIT


a medium duty disc harrow, the Maschio Veloce is ideal for seed bed preparation or for incorporating residues from previous crops. It can operate at up to 15km/h, a speed that makes for high outputs and the added benefits of low fuel consumption and maintenance. The machine is offered in 2.5m and 3.0m models, on a heavily built frame with two gangs of scalloped 510mm discs set to oppose each other at an 18-degree angle. Their cutting action helps stimulate rapid decomposition. The gangs are mounted in maintenance-free, Silent-Bloc units using

four rubber dampers to reduce vibration. To help crop flow through the machine, the gangs are set at 800mm centres. The axle hubs, sup-

plied by specialist SKF, use double ball races with heavy duty seals to prevent water, mud and crop residue ingress. At the sides of the machine, easily adjusted

lateral retaining shields help keep soil and residue within the working area for maximum effect, and they eliminate ridges between working bouts. Depth control is via

accounts will have an opportunity to do so at National Fieldays at Mystery Creek. “We’ll have a big presence this year for all the event days,” says the head of NAIT, Kevin Forward. “Our focus is NAIT re-registration and we want farmers to come forward and get help or advice on what to do with their NAIT accounts.” OSPRI, which manages NAIT, expects 4000 visitors to their stand and plans to double staff to meet demand. “If you are a livestock farmer and your business depends on it, you need to update your NAIT account. This improves animal traceability and supports disease management, which is what OSPRI specialises in.” Farmers will also have a chance to go into a prize draw to win a livestock scanner. “This is always popular and a scanner is a great addition to the farm shed especially for doing NAIT. You can win a different brand on the day between Wednesday and Friday,” says Forward. Visitors to the OSPRI stand will also be able to trial a new NAIT online system prototype. The OSPRI team will be in the Agriculture Pavilion at site PE40-PE42 and be available to discuss TBfree management of livestock and the progress of TB eradication in your region.
