Changing the Industry

Back to Blog


Anton Meier has been in dairy farming for most of his life. He knows what it's like to run an efficient dairy operation and all the stress that comes with it: milk production, grazing plans, herd management, staff training and admin paperwork (just to name a few)! So, even though it had been a few years since he'd hung up his last set of cups, he was fully aware of the regulations that were coming for New Zealand dairy farmers in relation to their effluent storage. When he heard about a product...

Top South Farming Feature

Top South Farming monthly recently did an article on Flexi Tanks NZ. This article features a 160,000L Flexible Water Tank at Titoki Nursery in Brightwell. Tim Le Gros from Titoki Nursery says "although their Flexi-tank bladder is only 160,000 litres, the system works well as they are constantly drawing off water to water plants, allowing it to re-fill. It’s also there for summer, when ideally we would keep it full in case water restrictions are imposed"....

Punctured Flexi Tank = No Problem

A common question we get asked is if the material used to make our tanks is easily pierced or punctured.  The material used is manufactured from multi layered rip-stop technical fabric with tensile strength of 450kg per 5 square cm, therefore it is not easily pierced or punctured but...accidents can happen.  We recently got called to a punctured tank at a customer’s property where their 500m3 tank had accidentally been punctured a few hours earlier.  The customer had stuffed so...

Geo40 - Silica Extraction

Cake Commercial Services has been a customer of Flexi Tanks NZ since 2021 and has purchased a number of smaller 5m3 flexible water bladders for  use in their transmission tower refurbishments.

Running on a Flexi Tank

Recently one of our customers, Grant Boyde, was interviewed by Ross Nolly for an article in the Dairy Farmer October 2021 publication. Grant has a 300m3 Flexible Effluent Tank installed at his 65 hectare farm in Taranaki. When Grant and Anissa Boyde’s effluent consent was coming up for renewal they realised that time had come for an upgrade. Their current system was proving problematical to manage, especially in light of the upcoming (at the time) 190kg N/ha cap on synthetic nitrogen fertilise...

Keeping Up With Technology

Ngatea dairy farmer Ken Jones is 88 years of age and a lot has changed since he began farming 66 years ago.  His effluent disposal was a square mouthed shovel throwing the cattle pats over the rail from the cow shed, but now we've got to the stage where we've got sprinklers sprinkling it on the farm. Ken has recently installed 2 Flexi Tank Effluent Bladder Tanks, one on each of his farms, as well as implementing other technology, like a weather station, into his farming practices in order t...
