Our Story

We are farmers ourselves, so we know the importance of quality product that is practical and robust. We strive to build products that last a lifetime on the farm.

Wilco Engineering is located on the edge of the Rangitaiki Plains in the Whakatane District. Our specialty hay/meal feeders, static large bale feeders and trailers are now spread all over New Zealand, from Ranfurly in the south, through to Kaitaia in the far north.

We formed Wilco Engineering in 2003 and initially centred our work around maintenance at the local pulp and paper mills where we had been involved in for 20 years, as well as general engineering work for the local farming community.

Through working with the local farming community and being farmers ourselves, we saw a need for quality product, practical, efficient and robust enough to stand up to daily rigours in all conditions. We continued developing and growing our range of products and 20 years later we can proudly say that we have a range that makes life easier on the farm.
“We combine our good ideas with yours because you know what works for you” is the philosophy behind our products.

All Wilco Engineering feeders and trailers are designed for everyday use on the farm or for transporting and are the ideal solution due to their strength and durability. Our highly robust frames are made in New Zealand and fully galvanised, to ensure the best quality and performance.

We are well-known for the quality and longevity of our products and 100% stand by everything we manufacture.

The Wilco Difference

Time and time again, we hear New Zealand farmers tell us they are frustrated with the amount of feed which ends up going to waste.

Our hay and meal feeders are designed to ensure minimal feed wastage and to protect feed from the elements. They are user-friendly and easy to move to reduce pugging, which will save you valuable time, and therefore money.

Whether you have a dairy unit, lifestyle block, alpacas, goats, sheep, or horses, we have a feeder size that will make your life easier, so you can feed your stock without having to check on them as often. Our feeders come as hanging, skid, or 2 or 3 wheeled mobile hay racks (with optional meal bins) sized from one bale to four capacity.

Don’t feed supplement for your stock to sleep on. Contact us today to find out how we can help you save time and minimise waste with a fully galvanised New Zealand product that will last for years.
