Anne Marie Barrow, Merlewood Angus
“We’ve been using Hico for herd testing, Mistro software as well as cleaning chemical delivery and some other small items for around three years. They are responsive, professional and super helpful in terms of planning my herd testing for the year and answering any questions I might have about Mistro. I like the personal service they deliver which just makes things so much easier.”
Kelly Perry – Dairy Farmer Denison
“Hico’s service has always been very reliable. We Herd Test once a month every month of the year, it’s very important to us as it monitors every cow in the herd. It allows us to know exactly where we are and where each cow is at that point in time. The equipment always turns up spotless. The whole service is pretty well rounded now and we’re more than happy to keep using Hico on our farm.”
