Wayne Harvey of Collins, New York, says his Patz 9427 Chopper keeps his cows cleaner.

Wayne and Sue Harvey operate Creek View Farms, a 220-head dairy in Collins, New York. The Harveys know that clean, comfortable cows produce more milk. With that in mind, cow comfort and herd health is a top priority at Creek View Farms.

The Harveys bed their herd with chopped straw. When they needed to replace their two competitive brand choppers, the Harveys decided to rely on Patz for their operation. The Harveys were very impressed with the performance of their new 9427 Chopper. Wayne says, “The performance is outstanding. It throws farther into the stalls.”

The Harveys are impressed by the rotor design and the long lasting Quadra-Shark® knives on the Patz 9427 Chopper. “We chop 24 bales of hay and straw every day with our Patz Chopper,” said Wayne, “We save a lot of time and labor because it chops faster.”

He remarked that the cows are cleaner as a result of using the Patz 9427 Chopper for bedding. Clean cows are healthy cows – and that adds to a farm’s bottom line.
