Massey Ferguson makes Dalikhaya Rain Zihlangu’s dream come true.

Dalikhaya Rain Zihlangu is a farmer from a small village in the agricultural heartland of Tseshe in the Eastern Cape. It took several crossroads for Dalikhaya Rain to return home and pursue farming, his true calling.

“I was born and raised here in a small village called Tseshe, under the district of Nqamakwe, which is in the Eastern Cape Province,” says Dalikhaya.

Dalikhaya’s father and grandfather were born here, and his great-grandfather’s roots are where it all started in 1890. Dalikhaya grew up only knowing one tractor brand, and that was a Massey Ferguson.

“Where I live is the best part of the Eastern Cape region. Here, you can farm sheep, you can grow crops and there is a large dam that supplies us with water. There is plenty of land for farming purposes and that is what I like the most about this area,” he proudly states.

“When I grew up here, there was only one tractor, a Massey Ferguson, and that is where my love for Massey Ferguson began. It was the brand that I grew up with and it will be the brand for generations to come,” he says.

Dalikhaya adds: “In previous years, we used oxen to prepare and plant the lands. During that time poverty was on the rise in this village. There was only one car and one tractor in the entire village. I still remember it like yesterday, as kids, whenever we saw the tractor, we would run behind it and follow it from one field to the other, until it completed all the tasks.”

Boerdery is meer as net ՚n beroep

Read English Version

“Van tjokkertjiedae af ken ek Massey Ferguson-trekkers. Ek het saam met hulle grootgeword op die plaas, en een ding wat ek goed kan onthou is dat ons Massey-trekkers baie selde in die werkswinkel gestaan het,” vertel Rene de Schmid.

Rene het op ՚n plaas in Namibië grootgeword, waar sy pa destyds met beeste en skape geboer het. Rene bedryf vir meer as 25 jaar al ՚n verkoelingsaak, maar vertel dat boerdery nog altyd in sy bloed was. Boerdery is meer as net ՚n beroep. Dit is ՚n passie wat deur elke boer se are vloei. Sommige families se boerderye strek oor geslagte tussen pa’s en seuns en daarom is familiebande ՚n hoeksteen van vele suksesvolle boerderye.

De Schmid Family: Massey Ferguson in Namibia where farming is more than a career.

Read Afrikaans Version

“Since childhood, I have been familiar with Massey Ferguson tractors. I grew up with them on the farm, and one thing that I can remember vividly, is that our Massey tractors barely stood in the workshop,” says Rene de Schmid.

Rene grew up on a farm in Namibia, where his father farmed with cattle and sheep. Rene has been running a refrigeration business for more than 25 years, but says farming has always been in his blood. Farming is more than just a job. It is a passion that flows through every farmer’s veins. Some families’ farming operations span over generations between fathers and sons, which is why family ties are a cornerstone of many successful farms.

Massey Ferguson maak suikerrietboerdery ‘n soet sukses

Goeie plaaslike ondersteuning van Farm Maintenance Services (FMS), ՚n KwaZulu-Natal handelaar vir Massey Ferguson-trekkers in Pietermaritzburg, was die hoofrede waarom Heinrich Harris van Vriendchap Boerdery na Massey Ferguson oorgeskakel het.

“Toe ons besluit het om ons masjinerie te vervang, was FMS die handelaar waarop ons kon staatmaak om na al ons behoeftes om te sien, en ons te ondersteun met tegniese bystand,” sê Heinrich, meganiese- en instandhoudingsdirekteur by Vriendschap Boerdery in Melmoth. Hy sê: “Al ons instandhouding word onder waarborg uitgevoer en FMS het gereedelike onderdele beskikbaar wat hulle spoediglik kan voorsien om die boerdery aan die gang te hou.”

Heinrich het lank ՚n ander handelsmerk gebruik. FMS se verkoopsbestuurder, Cornie Tosen, verduidelik dat waarde vir geld en die hoë spesifikasievlak van die MF-trekkers ՚n groot oorweging was in Heinrich se besluit om oor te skakel.
Ons streef daarna om ons klante tevrede te hou. “Die uitstekende na-verkopediens gee aan ons klante die gemoedsrus dat hulle met minimum staantyd aan die boer kan bly.”

Whatever new equipment we may require, we simply approach FMS, which has been really helpful in that regard.”
